I bought this bike on Craigslist in December 2005. Since then I have purchased new pedals, saddle, and bar tape, but it is otherwise a stock size Serotta Atlanta purchased new in Atlanta in 2001. I am lucky to have such a nice bike--it is far more than what I could have bought new, and I am enjoying it immensely. I am very happy that I bought this and not a new bike. It hangs in the living room, and it is my favorite piece of artwork in the house.

Stunning

Absolutely beautiful. Your rig straddles the line between classic and modern without seeming like a hodge-podge of parts. In some ways it reminds me a cross-breed between a Rivendell Atlantis and Rambouillet (that's a good thing) ;-)

thanks!

Thank you for the kind words. I am fond of the classic aesthetic blended with modern functionality as well--that is a nice way of putting it.

Sure is a beaut!
