Purdy! I like the Primotos with the vertical socketed dropouts instead of the horizontal dropouts. I think they changed a few years later from this model and changed to fork crown that was sloping instead of the flat top seen on that one.

My size, too. If that fork wasn't so bent, I'd be all over it.

(that's what I keep telling myself, anyway)

From the Serotta forum:

This bike has REALLY low miles on it. I looked at it yesterday and the only cosmetic issues are from the original owner (older, retired gentleman) moving it around and having it in storage. It would be a really nice bike for someone.

I don't know who's buying this, or where it's going yet, but I'm pretty sure that I volunteered last night to facilitate this deal.. so I'll get an up close and personal view of it shortly which will be awesome.

Now why would you assume that? You think I'd go after a primato?

Plotz away!

Bennie - really appreciate volunteering, but ended up knowing someone who'd already seen it.

I think I should mention that three members flagged this to me...Ofg first. I have this because he was FAST.

The 8-speed stuff looks so natural on that frame. Nice.

Do I get to claim a prize for guessing right? I'll take the Cyclops off your hands so you can make room in the stable.

I also happen to love 8 sp record. I'm debating dropping my de rosa panto deltas on it, but that might be too much (as well as time inappropriate).

I really do need to get that cyclops ridable. I probably will let it go since the primato also has tubulars and two tubular bikes might be much. You're welcome to come down and ride her dan!

That's a 56cm? I wanna try it.

Then again, you have a lot of bikes I wanna try.

We should spend a weekend in Lehigh County this summer. Carol would like to go to the races again. We had a blast there last summer.

I feel like this is going to be perfect no matter what I do. Will try saddle, but might need to go and of course might require stem change. It almost definitely will need smaller cranks.

Another red one...... >YAWN<

Well..... at least it has chrome lugs and a flat fork.

Wish I had one of those Brooks things to trade you for that Regal......
