Legend Ti Pavé - Delivered!

My client has been waiting 5 months for this frame, and it finally got delivered. Serotta has been having their troubles of late, but they still can make a gorgeous frame. This has been worth the wait! The white with painted silver logos is stunning, simple, and just beautiful.

This is a Legend Ti Pavé frame - Clearance for fenders and made for mid-reach brakes. Here in Seattle we ride our rain bikes twice as much as our race bikes. I'll post pics of the final build soon.

Oh my goodness that is proper. I hope the build lives up to the potential of that frame.

You really can see the milling of the head tube is different from years past. It's good to see even small advances for Serotta.

Can't wait to see the build.

That is awesome!!!!!

Hard to tell from the photos - is there a boss under the brake mount, and one on the CS brace?

Serotta would have sold a lot of bikes by having their dealers post photos like this...

There is not a boss under the brake mount, bosses are on the chainstay, rear dropouts, and chainstay cross bridge.

I plan on posting pics of all the frames my customers get. I have a Classique Cross frame coming any day now.

Very cool. My only concern would be the width of the fork crown. Looks like it might be tough to get a fender in there.

No problem. Able to fit a 35-37mm fender with no mods. I've done it before on the S3 forks. The fork is extra long (the dropouts are longer) so the fender sits lower below the apex of the crown.

Looks good so far. Please post another pic when it's all built.

The eye-candy get's me to daydreaming about the next bike...

The fork appears to be the S3 touring fork, same as on my Milholland. I'm running 30MM tires with fenders. A terrific fork!

Purty! You're not going to get that dirty, are you?

Frames like this one give me hope for Serotta's future. I can't wait to see the final build. My only criticism is that I would like to see some bare titanium-maybe unpainted stays (I know this is like criticizing Cindy Crawford's mole!)
