Serotta bikes cross the political divide, argues Ben Serotta

Serotta Bikes of the US is getting used to press interest in its $3000+ machines. It helps to have a presidential candidate riding one of your bikes, perhaps even better when the candidate falls off. "We can't make a fall-proof bike," Ben Serotta told his local newspaper, The Saratogian.
Publish date:

"As far as politics go, we've built bicycles for high-ranking Republicans," Serotta told the newspaper.

A Serotta bike "doesn't seem to follow party lines."

But if Democrat John Kerry - 'owner' of three Serotta's, including an Ottrott - wins the US presidential election in November, Ben Serotta, a bike builder since 1975, will cheer louder than most:

"It would be pretty cool to have a bike in the White House," he said.
