Mat’s Purple Serotta with Dura Ace 10-Pitch


Mat’s Purple Serotta with Dura Ace 10-Pitch

As I mentioned earlier, yesterday I met with Mat ( @Matterwilliger ) to shoot his recently-acquired Serotta track bike. It’s a real beauty and like all Serottas, the detailing and wet-coat paint is drop-dead gorgeous!

Check out some more photos below.

The color really pops against the bright yellow decals.

I know it looks like silver here, but the rear triangle is a ever-so-faint lavender coat. Again, the classic Serotta logo accents the paint.

Where there aren’t decals, there are cast-elements like this bridge. So thin!

Like most steel bikes of this time, the riders did everything they could to shave ounces. One way to go about doing this was to use Dura Ace’s new 10-Pitch drivetrain. Mat lucked out and got the bike complete with the full group.

Love the hubs too.

It even came with one of the Dura Ace AX posts and a spiffy Concor saddle.

The cockpit was pure Italian, well, minus the bar tape.

A Campagnolo pista headset, Cinelli 1a stem and Cinelli Criterium bars. My setup of choice!

Not a bad looking bicycle if I do say so myself.

I think it’s safe to say that Mat’s a happy dude. Now ride that shit!
