The Best Bet
A perfect bike can give even a novice cyclist an advantage. So if you really want to zip through The Gates in style, Serotta is the manufacturer to turn to. It handcrafts fewer than 3,000 bicycles annually, and just one can take 30 hours to build—it’s customized to your specifications after a three-hour “fitting” that includes an interview and body-motion analysis ($3,000 to $15,000; four-to-six-week delivery time; call 845-928-3060 for an appointment).
