hi there,
here's a pic of my 1993 jamis dakar, frame manufactured by serotta, tube ritchey logic prestige. was positioned against brodie sovereign etc.
i haven't found any information or pics in the internet about this bike, seems to be pretty rare. a guy from serotta mentioned that they only did a couple of frames.
has anyone more informations, pics?

it's a real pleasure to ride, very well balanced.

cheers,

b.

the geometry is for fixed forks, the tange switchblade works fine. originally, it had a ritchey fork...

I know its for fixed forks, but the Tange just look too short to me. I wonder if the original Ritchey forks were slightly longer.

I mean no disrespect fella. Thats a really nice looking bike :)

i justed checked it - both forks have pretty much the same length :) maybe the tange looks a bit stumpy due to the big bridge?

maybe it's an optical illusion but if you ignore the very long stem, the forks look more in proportion.

Wow, what a nice frame and colour!
Never seen one of these before either.
I just bought a '94 Dragon (raw metal) that looks a lot like this geometry.
But not with these nicce tubes...
Do you know why this was build by Serotta?
Would like to seen more pics.

That looks well, nicely proportioned, I'd say.
