It speaks for the quality of the frames that Mario Rossin was one of the most skilled frame builders at Colnago before he decided to run his own factory. In the 1980s he made us familiar with some of the most innovative and most stylish racing bicycles ever. And this Rossin RLX is certainly one of the best Rossin bicycles of the 1980s.
It features one of the most advanced framesets on the market back then. Columbus SLX tubes have been connected by microfusion lugs and there is also the "block" style bottom bracket. The result is a very stiff frame ready for competitions. These frames were offered in various specifications back then.
The frame of our RLX machine has been professionally refurbished and the iconic colour-panel paintjob it sports is therefore spotless. As for the equipment, we have fitted it with the complete Campagnolo Chorus gruppo with Cinelli cockpit with Rossin pantographes and even the original yellow Turbo saddle! Many wearing parts have been replaced for high quality brand new ones like the chain, cables, housing, bartape and also the handmade Tufo tyres. That all means that you can enjoy a trouble free ride from the late 80 straight away.
The bicycle is in excellent condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork has been professionally refurbished and is in excellent condition. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! All parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in fantastic riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.
