SOLD. SOLD. SOLD. Serotta Legend Ti ~52/53cm. Frameset or Complete.

I have decided to sell most / all of my skinny tire road frames. Trying to determine if I should sell this as-is, build it up with road bars and STI shifters or just part it out... decided to toss it up here and gauge interest.

I don't have the build sheet and don't have the exact measurements on hand as the bike is currently being stored at my parents' house since I am moving in a few weeks. I believe it is between 51 and 52cm square (effective top tube I believe is right about 52 / 52.5 cm but need to confirm). Head tube is 14cm. Frame is in excellent shape. Some very minor scratches here and there and some scuffing on the back of the fork. Wheels are mint / very low miles.


Edit 5/3/14: Standover is right about 30", perhaps a hair under.

Using my phone's level app... Looks like the TT has a 2* slope. Effective top tube measures a hair under 53cm as best as I can tell

Edit 5/4: Downloaded a fancy "angle finder" app and I measure 74.5 seat tube angle, head tube looks to be right around 71 or 71.5 but it's hard to get an accurate read since my phone doesn't really fit between the headset cups and the head tube badge makes it hard to get a flat surface to measure against.

Seems the geometry is the same as stock or very close, but with a slightly longer TT and head tube


$SOLD shipped in the US for frame/fork/headset. Add $100 for the seatpost (more if purchased separately)

$SOLD complete / shipped, as pictured. The carbon weave on the fork, stays and seatpost all match perfectly.

Reynolds Ouzo Aero fork, Serotta seatpost, Ritchey stem, DA 7700 group with bar end/TT shifters. Ultegra hubs to Open Pro rims. Michelin tires.

(Just imagine it with the saddle slid back to a normal position and with some drop bars... I was hesitant to even post pics as is since I think TT setups are fugly)

STA looks pretty shallow for a 52, like 73 deg or so?

I don't have the geometry / build sheet. The sta and hta look pretty close to parallel to me but I honestly don't know the angles. I think the zero setback post combined with the saddle pushed all the way forward in the pics skews the perception somewhat.

I will give Serotta a call with the SN and see if they can produce the build sheet for me

All kidding aside, I will see if I can track it down and/or try to do some measurements myself. Open to any suggestions on the best way to do either.

Is it stock? I thought the C in front of it meant custom... would be nice to know if it was stock though as it would make the sale easier!

Evening bump.

Any interest in one of the nicest ti frames ever built?

Anybody know if the geo is stock or custom? Assuming it is custom, what does the 50 in the SN refer to?

It looks like it is a custom TI based on a 50cm bike.... found this. Good luck with the sale.

Okay - called my sister and had her measure the head tube. It is right about 14cm.

I will try to get detailed measurements of the effective top tube and try to confirm frame angles next time I have the bike in my possession (possibly this weekend). I think the top tube has a very slight slope and the effective top tube is right about 52 / 52.5.

Took some measurements for somebody who is interested and thought I would post them here as they might help others. I also snapped a picture of the bike set up for me to ride (was set up for a buddy to test ride in the original pics).

As pictured here.

Center of BB to top of seat along the seat tube: 69.5cm.
Top of the seat to the ground: 92.7cm
Top of the handlebars near the stem to the ground: 88.6cm

Room for the stem to go up 1cm or down 2cm.

Another price drop... If this isn't gone soon I will probably break it down and part it out on ebay.

Don't let the TT set up scare you away. As best as I can tell, this is standard road geometry with a slightly longer TT and HT than a stock size 50 road frame.

Final price drop.

Frame/Fork/Headset: $1,000 shipped
Complete as pictured above: $1600 shipped.

And here is how it looks currently. (Moots post not available, will be sold with Serotta post or a 3T carbon with setback if you prefer)

Had a deal fall through on this so it's still available.

I should put some drop bars on it and take new pictures, I think the tri set-up is scaring people away (it is rather unsightly, I'll admit).
