Rossin is not the oldest of the great Italian bike builders but it is certainly up with the very best. Their story starts in 1973 when Gibi Baronchelli, riding for the Iclas Team, won the amateur versions of the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France. Vittorio Ghezzi, the owner of the Iclas Team decided to build a professional team around Baronchelli. The plan was to use bikes supplied by Colnago who were already supplying bikes to the SCIC Team. With help from Colnago, Baronchelli jumped to the SCIC team, angering Ghezzi who dropped Colnago as a bike supplier for his team.
Mario Rossin worked as a frame builder at Colnago for several years and was invited to join the new company. On September 14, 1974, Cicli Rossin was established by five partners – Vittorio Ghezzi and his son Guiseppe, Alberto Inzaghi, Domenico Garbelli, and Mario Rossin, who all agreed that the new bikes would be called “Rossin.” The “R” in the Rossin logo was adopted from Rossignol skis, and the pentagon represents the five founding members of the company. Mario Rossin was the design genius behind the company’s beginning and ever since then, the Rossin name has been one of innovation and racing success.
Here we present a beautiful Italian vintage steel machine the Rossin Prestige, which dates back to the early 1990s and was one of the most advanced bikes on the market back then. The superb frameset is made of super light and stiff TANGE Hexagonal steel tubing. On the technical side, a classy Campagnolo Athena groupset, 3ttt cockpit and a San Marco saddle.
ConditionUsed.. The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original with some small scratches and paint chips.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years..
