Always loved that colour combo.....we had a tria bike from Serrota in exactly the same colour in a bike shop I worked in about twenty years ago, boss used to test bikes for a big German tri magazine.....he's now a big shot at Merida.

Love the bike, but think the neon color theme and fade takes away from the beauty of this bike.

I realize this color scheme isn't for everyone, but for some reason, I've always liked it. BTW, where did you come across this?

Can't stop looking at this one--the shade of green in the logos is just perfect. Was this an original paint scheme or did you have it done up this way?

Aye, a classic serotta is still the highlight of my current hitlist. But it's builds like this that set my standards too high, damn it I want fluro-fades-of-awesome!

Ah, the bar tape really makes the bike what it is… very nice. And the blacked out rims and tires work well here, too.

No need to wear neon kit for visibility when riding that.
