We stumbled upon this gem a couple weeks ago. Serotta may be gone but impeccable samples still exist. This is among them. Built with the fabulous Colorado Concept tubeset designed by Reynolds for Serotta this gal is dressed to impress. Handmade in Colorado. Stop in and check her out. In the meantime, enjoy:

To start, this Basso Gap (57cm) appears to be a 1990 model. 1990 was a good year. MC Hammer stole our hearts with Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em and Marion Barry pulled a Rob Ford (kind of) before Rob Ford knew he was going to pull a Rob Ford (weird how that works).

To be clear, this bike is legal in all 50 states, made in Italy from Columbus SLX pipes and ready to jam. In case you didn’t notice, it’s pink and green–classic–1908 Howard University classic. Really though, in all the advances the bike industry has made, one area we’ve clearly declined is our willingness to use the entire color palette . We just don’t do it like we did in the 90’s. Anyway, enough banter, check the bike out. We’ll call her watermelon. It’s summer, watermelons are the summer fruit and this is your summer bike:
This month’s featured artists, Monica Moynihan and Ramie Perfett, will be returning to the shop this evening to display a new series entitled “Eureka”. Consisting of a unique combination of drum heads, pens and inks, the pieces show that “reason is not something that can be sought after”.
Come tonight around closing time for great art, craft brews, and good times. Bike below not featured.
