    Serotta TiMax 29er

    My baby arrived today. I will get my first ride in tomorrow. What a great time to have the day off.

    Wow, really cool. May I ask what the retail price of the frame is as you had it built, just the frame. Thanks.

    That is a stunning bike! Congratulations! How is the rear tire clearance? Also, how long did it take them to build it?

    I'm guessing over $3000.00 for the frame, a standard 26" TiMax is $2500.00.

    Beautiful! I'm wondering how long you had to wait? I'm currently waiting on my new SilkTi 29"er and, after nearly 4 months, the wait is friggin' killing me!
    Did you choose the cable routing or is that standard? That's what I went with on mine too instead of the triple mounts on the top tube. Are the hydro cable mounts the zip-tie type? Take some more detailed photos and post them, please!

    I'll take one and some other detailed shots per request. It's a little tight with a 2.3, but I normally run the Nano 2.1 and there is plenty of clearance with that. Bontrager is coming out with a 1.8 version of their jones acr.

    it took about 5 weeks. They were still testing the rear dropouts when I put in my order. The cable routing that I got was standard by Serotta standards. The rear hose claps are meant to be used with zip ties. It makes it so much easier that way.

    The shop is Lincoln Bicycle Company in Lincoln, Ne. Totally awesome shop, but I might a little biased since I work there. If you have any questions feel free to visit the websight. www.lincolnbicyclecompany.com and give us a call. We are definately a 29er shop and I'm always trying new things to get me to that ultimate ride.
