Sette was a USA owned and Taiwanese built frame producer. Bicycling Magazine called them Tour ready and gave it 4 stars and that’s without the upgrades in this bike. This bike has always been stored indoors, is very clean and lubed properly, has a few very very small dings but you have to look hard for them. Paint is excellent, never been wrecked except the wind blew it over a couple of times and damaged the saddle a little. All upgrades are top of the line but a few unridden years old.

Selling because I had hip replacement surgery and the other will need surgery soon too. Cycling’s not on the table for me anymore.
