The ModoMio A9 Bicycle Frame All of our bicycle frames are principally built from metals for three great reasons: delivering a highly personalized bicycle requires a wide range of control over size and geometry configurations; we require a wide and consistent palette of tube weight and stiffness options; and, of special importance for bicycles that are ridden where damage is more likely to occur, it's best revealed before it becomes catastrophic. Carbon manufacturing is generally less consistent and all but extreme damage can remain hidden until disaster strikes.
The ModoMio A9 is crafted with the costly and rare 6069 aluminum alloy which among other elements features Vanadium, the same key ingredient included in high performance steel and titanium alloys. It makes them tougher rather than stiffer, yet it is still formable. A perfect combination for our range of engineered tubing.
After welding and two controlled heat treatment procedures, we utilize a shot-peening process that was developed for military components that see high stress and vibration. All-in, the expected lifespan of our finished A9 frames is increased 300% over the more common 6061 and 7005 alloys used by our competitors. The end result is a frame that is light, lively and durable, the perfect combination for applying our "Colorado" design parameters for a ride that is distinctly Serotta-esque: very responsive in the drive train, yet suitably supple for excellent cornering and all-day riding.
The Serotta SF9 Disc-brake Carbon Fork Not to be under-considered, the front fork should by no means be considered a commodity component of your bicycle. Think of it as the tip of the spear that is you and your bicycle. It is the first point of connection to the road and usually too, the first point of any impact. How it handles with front loading, side loading, the offset forces of applying disc brakes at high and low speeds while riding straight and while cornering are a few of the behaviors we consider. Then we consider how the fork's flexing interacts with the movement of the frame and your wheels under all these conditions… it's complicated. And its why long ago I concluded that generic forks were not an option- for handling and safety, we have developed our own forks. We utilize the most experienced manufacturers and third-party test labs, like Germany's EFBE, where our road forks are tested to exceed both road and MTB standards.
All Serotta bicycle specifications are personalized to each cyclist at the time of ordering. Gearing, crank length, handlebar and stem sizing along with final tire size will be determined during our review of your fit & personal preference documentation. Please note, pedals and saddles are not included in your initial quotation due to the wide range of personal preference. We are happy to add your favorite selections to the bike order, or you can provide them on your own.
