I have an all-ti Legend and a Legend with the ST seat stays, and while I prefer the ti stays aesthetically, if I’m really being honest with myself, the one with the ST stays has a nicer ride. I’m sure you’ve noticed that the workmanship on the bike is off the charts.

It’s my 3rd Serotta after a Meivici and an Ottrot. It’s the most comfortable riding of the lot.

The headtube is a little long for me but I’ve actually decided I like it that way now, it suits the bike.

I’ve got a crazy aero bike to go fast on the flats and crit race (if that ever happens again) and I’ve got a crazy light bike for climbing in the mountains, this is actually the perfect compliment as the ‘all day ride’ bike.

I hate the word, but ‘plush’ comes to mind every time I ride it. It’s just so supple and smooth, it’s just a pleasure to ride. I’m sure the 28’s help.

Not as heavy as you’d think either - a hair over 17lbs as pictured.

And mechanical 9100 is a wonderful groupset; I thought mechanical was dead (di2 and eTap on my other bikes) but I was dead wrong.

Swapped out the Zipp Speed SL seatpost and S-Works Power saddle for a titanium post and Elaston Power Pro saddle and cut the chimney.

Weights up from 17.2lbs to 17.4lbs but I’m liking the aesthetic.

Ordered a timania stem; still deliberating over the cost of the timania handlebar...

May I know what Ti seat post that is? The finish matches the frame perfectly. I'm currently looking at Litespeed's Ti post for my incoming Serotta but unsure if the hairline finish matches the frame.

Cheers,
Ben
