Serotta Releases New Fondo SG Ti Road Bike

Road Bike

Serotta recently unveiled their latest road bike, a titanium endurance road bike named the Fondo SG. Handbuilt in Poway, California or Saratoga Springs, N.Y, by the same craftsmen that build every other Serotta. The made in the USA Fondo SG was developed and engineered to emphasize stability, descend at high speeds, be comfortable for all day efforts, and when paired with a responsive drivetrain will not leave you beat up after a long effort.

The Fondo SG is constructed of 3-2.5 ti size specific seamless alloy, custom tapered Power S-Bend chainstays, and Serotta’s proprietary 6-4 ti for machined dropouts. The new bike will be available in six stock sizes, with each size specifically designed to perform to the same standard no matter which size you need. Drivetrain performance, compliance, and handling are all tuned specific to the respective size utilizing a broad range of parts and materials. Even the forks, manufactured by Serotta, are specifically matched to the size and weight of the cyclist.

Serotta has taken the 40 plus years of data they’ve compiled building thousands of made-to-order long distance road bikes to come up with the six sizes offered on the Fondo SG. Serotta is also offering their Heads Up press-in head tube extension for those that need it with the new model.

The new Fondo SG will be available as a complete bike for $4295 (with Shimano Ultegra) or as a Frame & Fork for $3195.

    Explain how a pressed in head tube extension would look like. As I’m thinking the extra length head tube would be a one piece design and not something pressed into something else to give it it’s extra hieght. I must have misunderstood something.
