Serotta ATX

I bought this new in March of 1993 and decided to freshen it up a little. I know probably sacrilegious but I ditched the Rockhox mag 21 and XT drivetrain in favor of a soma rigid fork and Box4 8speed. I needed a more upright position as my 63 yoa neck did not like how it was. need some adjustments still. not loving the hub to crown distance of the fork which it were a bit shorter and would like to find a cool crowned fork ie ritchey crown or something similar. I need to cut the handlebars down a bit as well. A work in progress. one cool thing is my serial number is 007 and british racing green makes this my Bond bike lol..

Ditching the suspension fork is an upgrade on a vintage MTB, . That is a good looking bike and the rigid fork is very good for mixed road/gravel type riding which is a great way to repurpose an old MTB. Enjoy the bike.

Handsome bike that looks fun. Where are the drive-side pictures showing the Prime Box 4. Stuff? Are you happy with the new drivetrain?

so far I am really happy with it but I have only done about 40 miles as just got it done Wednesday. it shifts really fast up and down and the big gaps 11, 13, 15,18, 22, 28,34 and 42 do not seem bad at all. I have 39 front chainring.

That Box4 drivetrain is new to me. Excellent stuff! For my winter commuter MTB, I picked up this relatively cheap Sensah 1x11 group:

Not lightweight, but a good way to retrofit an old MTB.
