The build is perhaps a bit vintage, but it suits me just fine.
Edge (Enve 2.0) fork. 7800 shifters, brakes, derailleurs, pedals. 6700 crank and Ultegra factory wheels shod with Panaracer Race A Evo (25s). Salsa Shaft post, WTB Shadow Stealth saddle (don't make em like that anymore...), Reynolds stem, Cane Creek headset with awesome Interlok spacers (no slamming here), Bontrager VR Race bars wrapped in Fizik 2mm soft touch tape.
Missed this when you posted it. Great looking bike.

What size is that?

I had a Works CR 6/4 that was probably the best go-fast titanium I've ridden. Still keep an eye out for a 61cm version of it...

Thanks. It's an XL which I'm pretty sure was the largest stock size available and equivalent in size to a 61 Works TR.

Nice. Well, bookmark me in case you ever decide to sell.. Can't see why you would, but you never know

I'm pretty sure mine was a Large - it had a 57.5 effective TT.

Data point of one, but the Pronto is the bike Serotta should have been making for five years instead of a couple months. A race bike!

(And you are crazy to sell it.)

I'm waiting for No 22 to build a modern equivalent, full-ti rocket.

Me too, that is a really beautiful color in the combination with the bare titanium especially.

It has really grown on me. The more I polished, the more it popped.

A detail that reflects the color pretty accurately...

Great looking bike.

Is it true that if a hammer is your only tool, everything looks like a nail?

On a serious note, that is a handsome bicycle and I like the way it was photographed in the alley. Just wondering though, did GT’s seat stay design have any unique functionality or was it just a way to differentiate their products?

Thank you sir. The hammer comes in handy for up close and personal encounters.

Thank you too. GT says it's there to reduce lateral flex and increase stiffness and acceleration. Don't know what the actual science is to support that, but the bike does have a surprising amount of stiffness while sprinting for a Ti frame.
