All killer no filler, as they say.

Glad it has Serotta on it again, naked bikes don't look right to me.

Best looking bike I've seen in some time.

That’s amazing! Stunning! My Ottrott is by far my most favorite bike of all time! It’s sitting in storage now, this motivates me to ride it again. Enjoy it!!!

Agreed with others - that is a stunning paintjob. I love that bikes go through different iterations.

My commuter is a Redline ti CX bike that I bought used 12 years ago - it has gone through many iterations including knobby tires and being ridden in mud to SS commuter/trail bike to now a fendered, racked geared nerd bike.

When you have a great bike, changing things up rarely yields bad results.

Is the dark blue sort of the equivalent of Serotta's Big Boy Blue?

That paint job is a gift to everyone who appreciates bikes.

Since retiring and moving to the beach, I only have room for 2 bikes in our condo ( any more would trigger divorce ).

At the moment it’s the Moots RSL and Colnago C60. I’ll eventually put one or both of those in storage and pull out the Ottrott and/or Kirk.

There are a few definite drawbacks to condo living. Faced the same thing in Oakland.

Now in NC I'm covering the attic into a finished bike room/workshop, complete with pink, yellow and red floor tiles. It's going to be epic.

Everything in life is a compromise. I’m very blessed to be able to retire at 58 and move to a luxury high rise at the beach. If I only have access to 2 bicycles at any time, it’s a small price to pay...
