    Oooooo... she's a stunner. And look at those seat stays. Nice.
    That thing looks fast just standing there.

    very beautiful, Mom! Up here in Ann Arbor a lot of the more accomplished lady cyclists of our age have custom Serottas as well, mainly Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society members. I'd love to see Mrs. Road Fan on one!

    Nice. Don't your wrists hurt with that saddle sloping forward like that?

    To use the vernacular of my esteemed colleages: Purty! Those are unique gear-grips, really out there ahead of you. What's the size of the frame (50?) and width of the handlebars (42?)?

    I had to tip the nose down like that because when it was level I had quite a bit of discomfort in an unmentionable area. My hubby would not be happy if my new bike interferes w/our love life

    I'm going back to the shop tomorrow to trade the saddle for something different, better, I hope.

    it was sooooooo worth waiting for, Yen. I'm glad I was patient. It's amazing how much better this bike feels compared to my old one....night and day.

    The brake levers have shims to accomodate my smaller hands, which may account for the "out there" look.

    It's a 52 short w/44 cm handlebars, salsa short and shallow.

    Wow, if that's a 52 with the wheels so close to the crank ... my 48 Serotta's Chainrings must be mounted onto the front fork.

    someone I was riding w/saturday pointed that out to me also, that my toes are pretty much level w/the front of the tire, actually overlap a bit. I haven't had a problem w/it. I only notice it when going slowly and turning sharply. I just have to keep in mind...I can't do that! I guess that is the result of the frame's compact geometry.

    Hi,

    Nice!

    I hope that the person who fit you on the bike can get you set up with a better seat angle/seat as the current set up does not look conducive to long rides.

    Otherwise a great looking ride and one that I know rides very well. I know you'll enjoy it.

    I'm in the process of building up my 50th b-day Serotta Attack.
    Thanks.

    Very nice looking bike ... and I don't always say that.

    I too can't imagine riding with the seat set like that. I once tried it with about half that downward angle and my wrists and shoulders were hurting within 2 miles.

    Not to put too fine of a point on it, Jay Tee, but Eddie Haskell spelled his name "Eddie," not "Eddy." And we don't really know what color his bike was, as Leave It To Beaver was shot in Black and White.

    Just sayin' ...

    That is one beautiful bike. I hope you will enjoy it in very good health for many years to come.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.
