Ben 2
Last fall Serotta had a chance to witness the launch of a CycleKids program in a school in the Bronx and said, “Watching as children’s lives begin a transformation before my eyes was simply an overwhelming experience. I just had to help. As an artist, making something with my own hands is the best way I know how to show my support.”

The CycleKids custom-tailored, Ben Serotta amodomio C17 is crafted from Ben’s own proprietary steel tubing produced exclusively for him by Columbus SpA of Milan, Italy.  Serotta pioneered optimizing bicycle performance through unique frame tube design that amplifies all the best qualities of the material.  The C17 takes this to a new level of achievement for a ride that Serotta says “is the best riding steel frame ever built.” No detail escapes Serotta’s scrutiny, delivering a finished product that is as exceptional in appearance as it is in performance.  In this day and age of hyper-marketing high-tech composites, a growing number of cycling aficionados are rediscovering finely made steel bikes because of the distinct ride qualities that are unique to this most noble material.
