Serotta Dropout Service

Serotta Dropout Service

After building a fantastic titanium bike for a new customer, keeping an older one on the road is the next best thing. Our repair services bring us much joy, and of course our customers are pretty pleased as well!

Most of the frame failures we see on frames manufactured by other builders fit into predictable categories. One of those is "the Serotta crack" on the beautiful windowed dropouts found on Ottrott, Legend Ti, and other frames, which in turn is often linked to improper maintenance of the seat stay bearing those dropouts are used in conjunction with.

If your Serotta frame with this dropout design has not cracked but your bearings have never been serviced, now is the time for some preemptive maintenance. Please get in touch to make arrangements for sending in your frame for bearing service. (Because of the bearing location being in such close proximity to a crucial carbon/titanium bond joint we strongly discourage anyone not familiar with this particular construction from attempting to service the bearings.)

If your Serotta frame with this dropout design has cracked don't fret, we can bring it back to life!

We have done a number of these repairs and have great success. Our current pricing is ~$375 for the full repair service, including the dropout repair and bearing replacement. Bearing service only generally runs ~$125 including parts and labor. You can read more about it on the Serotta Dropout Service page.

PDXTI 12-15mm TA Adapter

PDXTI 12-15mm TA Adapter

With multiple front hub standards now in play, it make sense to stay modular and keep your options open. This brilliant adapter from PDXTI is extremely light weight 3K carbon weave that allows the use of a standard 15mm x 100mm MTB/CX wheel with a 12mm x 100mm thru axle Road/CX fork.

Easy as pie: The adapter slides into a 15mm hub, allowing the wheel to be mounted and secured to a 12mm thru axle fork. 

DIRECTIONS:
1) Slide 12-15-TA Adapter into 15mm hub.
2) Install wheel into fork as normal.
3) Install 12mm thru axle as normal.

In stock and available now. Click on the product for full details.
