    Amazing bikes those Brooklyns. I tried one out a fwe times, but never on trails where the bike could shine. I'm also too much of a chicken-$hit to own that kind of machine;-)

The Ventos are beautiful but I just don't think they are practical for cross season (especially when I have the other bombproof wheelset that is perfect for cross or touring.) I am probably going to rebuild her with a compact crankset and some Veloce 9 or 10 speed bits and to go with the other wheelset (that is 9/10 speed).

    Now, you Irish cops are perking up. That's two sound theories in one day, neither of which deal with abnormally sized men. Kind of makes me feel like Riverdancing.

    the whole story with more pictures is here: http://www.serotta.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26678

    it is a 1984 Serotta Club Special. Long story short, it was a eBay find that needed a repaint with surface rust bubbling on some of the braze-ons, but funds were really too short to do a proper paint job, so I had a buddy blast it clean and powdercoat it for $50 in the meantime.

    Right now a buddy is borrowing it and riding it exclusively until his DeSalvo comes in. Between the rain and the salty air of Long Island, NY... it is good to have the powdercoat for now.

    Come on BryanF show us the rest of them too. I have not ridden with you in a bit and I need to see them again. Some of the best balanced, big bikes I ever did see!

    Also, Darren and Mr Pres. and anyone else. That IF is up for sale again. I love it, but I've got to move some stuff...

    Full listing and more photos in the classifieds soon

    So many good bikes in this thread. BryanF, don't sweat the white balance, the bike's visual balance is spot on.

    "Ferrari" red is also known as Rossa Corsa, cool history...

    Thanks for the kind words...I wonder what you'll think of it in its current configuration though. Mr. Crumpton convinced me that my saddle was too high, so my fitter (4 years he had me up there), the geometry and position all went out the window. I thought Nick was nuts, but the power numbers and comfort don't lie...the saddle is now down nearly and inch from that photo, the stem is slammed and I wish the top tube were about an inch lower. Rides like a champ though...doctor/lawyer jokes aside, Seven makes a friggin nice bike, and like most folks here, I've ridden a few...

    Here is a shot that shows the red a bit better...taken the day before heading up to the top of Haleakala on Maui. 10,000' in one shot...certainly a recommended ride. Mr. Brunk's old wheels made the job a bit easier tho'.

    Gasp! You tossed aside objective fit science for mere subjective opinion?!

    Er, more like the other way around....I'm not convinced in hindsight that those 4 years were spent listening to someone who knew what the hell was up. Live and learn...adjust as needed...repeat.

    that was a joke.
    I paid for a fitting last year. Guy took a lot of measurements, hooked me up to his fancy electrode like doo-hickie, spent an hour watching me ride the trainer, moved me forward a half a cm and declared that I was right where I needed to be.
    Whadayaknow...my body does have some sense of where it is "supposed" to be.

    Exactly...that's what I meant too.

    A guy with a computer program, a tape measure, a size cycle and an opinion is still just a guy with an opinion when you get down to it. All Nick had to do was see me pedal my bike for 15 seconds and he knew a change was needed. It's the quality of that opinion that counts in the end.

    Sorry...thread drift...back to the bike p0rn please! Ariba, ariba! More photos!!
