 *** Very sadly, have sold my Rossin***
I've had to raise funds for a bike with electronic shifting (after a hand injury made left hand shifting difficult) so sold my Rossin and my carbon road bike.
I'll eventually be on the lookout for an all original Rossin for London rides however.

Going back a few months I took the Rossin Record (or 'Team'?) out for its first proper ride on a cold, crisp day; 34 miles (home to Richmond Park, three laps and back home).

The ride was super smooth, the Campag Veloce gears shifted perfectly, braking was spot on and the new Rolls saddle that I've finally settled on was very comfortable and looks just right.

If you look at earlier postings on this blog you'll see how the bike was built up from a restored frame to create the current build. There's even a video on the home page..

My Rossin was built at The London Cycle Workshop.

  1. Damn. Well, nice work. Itll make someone very happy.
    I assume youre on the hunt for a 60 cm Rossin now. Dont recall seeing that many large frames though. Best of luck!

  2. Because of a hand injury I'm buying a bike with an Ultegra Di2 electronic groupset. Then at some stage in the future I'll be on the lookout for an all original Rossin, possibly a Prestige.
