Date Reviewed: June 2, 2008

Strengths:    This frame has held up through 9 years of abuse as a fully geared CC ride to a now beautiful and svelte SS.

Weaknesses:    Probably a little flexy for a rider over 175#... chainstays and seatstays are of smaller diameter tubing.

Bottom Line:   
This is an indestructible frame that has beautiful welds and rear dropouts. The Ti is of the best quality and the frame is 100% American made (at least it was in 1999). I am proud to say that I am one of the few Serotta MTBers around and it's nice to have something that not alot of people are riding.

Strengths:    Custom Build

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I decided it was time for an appropriate bike fit for my size. My son was ready to hit the trails a bit more agressively so - at 7'2" 320# and a 100mm SO height I needed a full custom fit. I wanted a lightweight firm frame so after getting fitted at Steiners, I setteled on a 29er TiMAX. First frame was not right so I sent it back and a new frame was made in a timely manner. When I got the frame back I finished the build out and got to ride it one time in December before the snow flew. It is extremely lightweight and climbs up and over anything. My other choice for a frame builder was Seven. It was a literal coin toss. I hope to make it to Saratoga soon so I can show the fabricators the buildout. I wish it wasn't 32 and windy today as the sun is shining bright. 'Ginger' as I call her, is sitting next to my golf clubs waiting for a bit warmer/drier weather. Look for me at Pedros this year.
I gave 4 value chilis because after the build out was complete, I could have bought a good used truck, it got expensive but I was committed to my initial plan.

Moots Rigor or Serotta TiMax?

I think about buying a new titanium frameset. I almost have experience with the Moots and i really like it. But it seems to be more a frame for touring and long epic rides than xc racing. Is there anyone with riding experience with the Serotta TiMax? I live in germany and the price for the frames is ... Read More »

Serotta TiMax

I've been following this 29'er thing for a while and decided to go Big. I came over from a full XTR Litespeed Sewanee and I don't think I can go back to 26" wheels. My racing and trail riding is simply faster and more fun.Read More »
