New ride

Picked up a frame at a bike flea market at the beginning of the month (practically stole it imho) and just got to finish building it up last week. Thanks to Paisan for helping me put it all together.

Serrota Colorado Ti + carbon fork (I'm guessing 93-96 is for the year)
King headset
Microshift Centos levers and rear derailleur
Ultegra 6650 cranks and 6700 bottom bracket
105 rear cassette
Wheels came from my old bike ultegra hubs to IRO rims with double butted spokes
Soma highway one bars
Stem may be temporary it's a Kalloy I got from the LBS's parts bin to check fit
Ultegra brakes
VO seat post
Shimano R540 pedals
Salsa Nickless bottle cages

Will, not a problem helping you build it up. I tried to have you do as much as possible so you could learn from the build. Hopefully you did.

For the record the pictures don't do the bike justice. It's beautiful in person, I still can't believe you found that bike in such great condition for that price.

VERY NICE! I will have to come down to your neck of the woods again soon and hook up for a ride...that road you were on in Oley Twp looks cool! I dumped my 7.5 FX hybrid and am strictly a "roadie" now (Trek 2.3)!

Thanks folks, yes the pictures do not do the bike justice. I almost didn't post them wanting to wait until I got better pictures, but knowing how I am I would never get to it. Oh yes and I did learn a lot from the build.

Doug definitely let me know when you want to ride, Oley was great and I want to go back there. Awesome place to ride.

Nice, Serotta was the bomb back in the day. Haven't seen many lately. Two or three but that's about it.

Great post link Neil, I had not seen that one! And you weren't kidding about Lancaster County and the Amish Disneyland...only a few truly nice rural routes left here for a ride of that picturesque character.

Will - isn't that your Brooks saddle from your "old" bike? How do you like it with the Serotta geometry?

...and let's try a ride in November, cold I know but still worth it. Maybe we can grab Neil and he can take some shots of me trying to keep up with you!

Nice find and good build in a sort time. I really like the area you ride in. My desert SW is great right now weather wise but lacks the green beauty and old buildings of your area. Congrats.

The porches on that house just beg for a cup of coffee and the morning paper.

Great find. It looks nice in the pics, and if they don't do it justice, it must be a beautiful ride. That's a carbon fork in the photos? Amazing how perfectly it matches the frame...!
