Freshly Delivered Ottrott - "Warning, you may need a bib"!

While the process was a bit painful, multiple delays, I must admit I am extremely happy w/the outcome and cannot wait till I get her built and on the road. Congrats Ben Serotta, you've done it again!

If you think it's great now, wait 'till you ride it! One of the very best frames made.

Beautiful too!

The new lugs look nice. So do the "etched" logo's on the CS and ST.
You are going to love the ride...mine is 8.5 throughout and it is really nice.
Nice you got the man to sign it. That's a great touch

Stunning! The blue-tinted carbon really pops in the sunlight. Time to start building it up!

Wow that is thing of modern beauty. Serotta needs pic like that on the website. Love the signature and date. Hammers home the point that the bike was man by craftsmen.

Congrats on your purchase, that is an amazing bike. Like Ben says about the Ottrot, ~~ "If you could only have one bike" (this would be it).

Can't wait for ride reports and build photos. Enjoy
