- Thank you so much for considering yet another bike!
Serotta recently fell into my hands and has been my go-to bike for
many quickie go fast rides around town.
have not been able to find any information for the Nova model on
the net. I have been told by the previous owner that this is a '91
Nova SLX. According to Serotta, some of their earlier records have
been lost or destroyed and they were not able to cross reference
the serial number for me.
cannot verify if the tubeset is indeed Columbus SLX - the bike has
a lively ride but is not very light. As pictured with a stock DA
8 speed group (mix of 7400 & 7700 components) the bike weighs about
lugged frame has a 57 seat tube (C2T), 56 cm top tube (C2C), 73.5/73
ST/HT angles. Not sure what the fork offset is but the rest of the
dimensions seem to be classic 90's road race.

bike rides so well, I am inclined to send the frame to Brad Wilson
of Capricorn and have him build another bike for me based on this
bike's dimensions and tube specs...
contact me if you have any more information about this particular
