FS: New old stock 55cm Serotta Colorado III frame and fork
I recently purchased this built up but never ridden 2001 Serotta Colorado
III from a Serotta bike shop that was closing out their older model Serotta
frames. This is an absolutely gorgeous frameset! The Serotta paint looks wet
and the welds are some of the best I have ever seen. This is a wonderful
testament to the quality workmanship and aesthetic beauty Serotta puts into
their hand-built frames.
This near-new 2001 model Serotta Colorado III frame measures 55cm from the
center of the bottom bracket to the center of the seat tube with a 55cm top
tube. It is finished in the classic Serotta competition red to competition
yellow fade paint scheme with yellow decals on the red down tube and seat
tube. There is a matching yellow 1" threaded carbon fiber fork. This bike
will turn heads wherever you go.it is stunningly beautiful!
The Colorado III uses Serotta's signature C4S steel tube set, which makes it
feel lighter and more responsive than bikes that actually weigh less. C45
Colorado 4th Dimension steel tubing is the most sophisticated steel tune set
made. All tubes are proprietary Serotta size-specific Colorado Concept. Main
tubes have tapered triple short butts for maximum mechanical advantage,
minimal weight, optimum rigidity, and compliance. Seat stays are
double-tapered for maximum strength, beauty, and traction control.
This Serotta Colorado III has Serotta's exclusive 3D XL dropouts and the
legendary Serotta Power "S" bend chain stays. This Serotta has the new
Serotta Head On cable guides, which are light and easy to adjust. Large
sculpted pockets on the barrel adjusters give you a better grip, making for
easy "on the fly" shifting adjustments if necessary.
There are two sets of water bottle bosses, a pump peg, the rear brake cable
is routed at 7 o'clock on the top tube, and it takes a clamp-on front
derailleur. The head tube 15mm extended top of the head tube for better fit
and adjustability and the rear dropout spacing is 130mm.
The fork has a few places on the fork crown where the paint was scratched
off when the fork crown was removed. The Serotta bike shop where I bought
the frame looked it over and indicated the scratches are cosmetic in nature,
not structurally significant.
The price on the 2001 model frame and fork was $1,495, and that didn't
include a fork. You can buy this near-new one for only $825, and that
includes the matching carbon fiber fork and professional packing, shipping,
and insurance to the lower 48 United States.
Pictures available on request.
