FS: Serotta TiMAX frame - One of a kind !!

Hi all,

up for sale is ( this was a VERY hard decision ) a marvellous, one - of - a - kind Serotta TiMAX SE custom mountainbike frame incl. a black Chris King 1 1/8 inch headset. Very rarely produced - in this sceme there will be exist not more than 2 or three pieces. This is a masterpiece of american craftmenship from Saratoga Springs, upstate NY. A real piece of art and collectors item, as Serotta has closed factory and business a few years ago.

Frame is - as you can see on the pics - in pristine / mint condition; ridden for approximately 300 mls. in only good weather conditons. No scratches, no rubs from cables etc. Outlined letters are painted. Has 3D - CNC - machined dropouts; regarding costs, they were produced only for a very short period.

All measurements are seen at the Serotta Draft sheet for production.

Original price was more than five grands !

Price for this is 1850 EUR incl. shipping with DHL ( intl. premium package ) anywhere to the continental US; Buyer takes over responsibility for any import / custom matters and shipping once I have despatched it - payments with PayPal only, please.

If you have any questions, do not hestitate to contact me.

That's lovely.
I haven't bought a mountain bike in 20 years.
What size rider was that built for? What saddle height?

Well, saddle height is variable - ST is 48 cm ( c- c ). It was built for me and my height is 1,86 m.

Thanks.
As I suspected much too large for me.
For those non-metric types, the OP is over 6 feet tall.

The top tube is bang on 24". With a modern short stem and wide bars, this'll fit like a stock Large/19" MTB. It will be more of an XC bike - low front end and steep HTA. But probably most suitable for someone 5'10-6'1".

Nice bike!

Btw for anyone wondering - this is built for 80mm 26" fork (453mm a-c fork). Anyone building it today should build it up with a 100mm fork. Will slacken the HTA to 71d, shorten the TT by about half an inch to about 23.5 and raise the bb a little. Since the stock BB height is 11.8" (suuuuper low), this should result in fine (maybe better) handling and fewer pedal strikes.

Hoss has a 100mm 26" Fox Fit RLC that would be a good match. I think Anne (Speedychix) is selling a couple suitable forks too.
