Hi!

This is one of my first posts here, I'm more the quiet reader ;)
I want to show you my Serotta T-Max from 1992, some of you might recognize it :) That's the frame Sithlord sold 1-2 months ago (many thanks fella!)

I've built it up (almost) without anodized parts, I wanted to emphasize the elegant look of the frame. So it became no flashy or screaming colorful bike which was sort of standard in this era.

This is a gentleman's bike, or as Elev12k already stated, a bike for the connaisseur. :)

Let the pics tell what i can't express with words...

Hope you like it!

(And if you have a Syncros seatpost 26,8mm in silver or made from titanium in your shed, please let me know ;) )


Cheerio!

Chris :)

The frame and forks are in really good shape, the rest of it is(was ;)) NOS or ridden only a few years. I polished and cleaned everything and that's the result :)
One factor for "newish" look are the Timbuk II tires, which are from http://www.firstflightbikes.com/.

The ride is really phenomenal, the only things that differ it from modern rides are the forks and the Paul Stoplights ;)

I've always liked seeing that bike, and that's the best build on it yet. Very lush!
