'96 CSI in 62L - re-homed

Update: frameset has been sent to a tall Paceliner in the midwest...

-----

I picked up this time capsule off PinkBike after PSA'ing it and then figuring why not just get it for myself...

1996 Serotta CSI in 62L:

Stock Campy Record 8 Titanium build. Mavic CD rims in great shape. Gatorskins need to go. Needs narrower bars and matching up the post to the stem. Added the saddle and cages. Otherwise she's good to go. No time to ride this evening, but hopefully tomorrow. The tubing on this one is sweet. And the tire clearance is more than adequate. It's in pretty exceptional condition too. Not NOS - close tho.. On first look the reach seems workable. This may be a winter trainer, or may get taken to Sacramento as my home away from home bike...the gearing would definitely be a better fit there...

Nice catch.

That bike cries out for a silver stem and black saddle to complete the package, though...

Riding it first, but my thoughts went to:

- Silver 110cm Nitto Pearl
- Nitto 40cm short reach compact bars

Could go a couple different ways from there with saddle color, bar tape, etc.

Don't develop an opinion until you ditch the Gatorskins.

Don't worry. Those will be gone before the first ride..

In the previous owner's defense, it came from goat-head country. And at least they are 28s, not 23s.

Yeah, love it. I think Cha-ching green has got to be one of the best colors.
I would love to try a CSI someday.

Looks like it was barely ridden. There are a few small nicks in the paint, but barely any rubbing or signs of actual use - though the wear to the rim anodizing tells me it saw at least some miles. The drivetrain hums very nicely - it'd been a long time since I'd had 8-spd in the stand - the chain is THICK... Shifts are super crisp and there's barely any wear to the hoods.

Sun is poking through the clouds - should be able to get some miles on it later today
