    Default Serottas

    Although I've got my issues with the company these days, I still love my Nove - whatever the reason, the frame combines rigidity and softness in a very satisfying way.

    I freshened it up over the winter - HotTubes refinished it and replaced the many fraying blue & white decals with a few in silver paint; Ultegra 10 has been replaced with SRAM Red; The soft parts are white now.

    Who else? C'mon, I know they're out there. The brand that dare not speak its name...

    Default I'll play...

    Mid-90's CSI w/ a bi-lam seat lug. I've since swapped the cranks for R700 Shimano's b/c the front derailleur adjustment was too finicky with the XC Pro cranks. Bars are now wrapped in white, too. It's been my commuter since the Ram is getting refinished. It handles incredibly well.

    Here's my '96 CSI, converted to single speed using the White Industries eccentric ENO hub. What a crazy nice riding bike it is.

    Wish I knew how to make the picture larger...anyone know?

    There aren't that many people on this board stupid enough to buy one. I'm stupid enough to buy one, and then another, and . . .

    I hate to say it, but in my world that is pretty clean...

    But I am moving towards black tape on a few bikes in order to avoid comments from the peanut gallery. :cheers:

    well, it only needs to be clean for the camera.
    the rest of the time... you're on your own.

    Well, that's true. Here's a pic of the same bike a couple weeks earlier. Different wheels and a longer head tube. The second shot was taken after I had milled down the head tube.

    Clean tape!
