Very nice.

I always liked GT, especially the titanium ones. I have no idea if the seat cluster triangle actually impacted stiffness much (especially compared to more recent frames) but it is such a nice design, and is so connected with the company look. The way they had the top tube push through the seat tube was great too.

Wound Up, with the crown and straight legs/lines, is a really perfect fork choice for that frame; photos with it would be nice to see.

thank you!
yes, it´s my favourite und most ridden bike in 2018. rides like a road bike and performs with the 32mm tubeless Roubaix tires on all surfaces like a cross bike (in dry conditions).

I want a Ti Serotta

Anyone looking to unload a TI Serotta in a 54ish? Currently riding a 54 Fierte Steel.

If you ever decide to part with that beauty, I don't think you will have trouble selling it Fireflys occupy a small space in my heart for particularly lustworthy bikes.

I agree. That, and pretty much every Firefly is incredible. Would love to see more of this one above. Dream bike for sure.

530 TT / 465 ST / 98 HT if i recall correctly off the top of my head?

nominally 'long and low' for a short rider (i'm 170 cm) and all the other bikes that had this HT length were closer to 500-510 TT.

Thanks for the info, that bike looks so sweet! The small frames paired with deep'ish wheels look race ready.
