Hi folks, I'm looking for some opinions regarding a 2006 Serotta Fierte steel bicycle. I have been test riding one at my LBS recently and I really am impressed. I especially like the carbon forks on the front and back...it sure smooths out the road buzz....a real plus for a 52 year old in long distance events! I'm looking for a new bike for a wide range of uses from triathlons to long distance brevets and I have been close to buying a Trek Pilot 5.0 recently... until I saw this Serotta. The prices are almost exactly the same. I realize that ultimately it comes down to personal preference but there is also issues such as quality of craftmanship. Given that the prices are not an issue, any opinions regarding the relative value between these biks? thanks Frank
