@tigoose,

The Rossin Professional remains unbuilt at the moment as I'm currently focussing on building the 55 Anniversary Colnago Master X Light.

The lack of space here in Tokyo is also another factor holding me back.

It's gonna quite a while before I proceed with the Rossin, unfortunately

This being one of my favorite threads on the forum, I think it is time to make a small contribution. Although I mainly sell frames from the famous Italian brands (Colnago, Pinarello, etc.) I personally like frames from the smaller brands a lot more. Especially those built in the late 90's / early 2000.

Here are my two personal favorites. A Casati Armonia (Columbus NEMO) and a SOMEC Mercury. Both feature beautifully executed fully internal cable routing, fillet-brazed tubing, a uni-crown fork and an amazing paint job. I forgot to weigh in the Casati, but the weight of the SOMEC frame is 1830 grams.

@SWijland,

The Casati is definitely pretty! Columbus Nemo, fillet brazing+lugged?
Didn't know that Nemo tubes can be brazed as well. It looks like Genius from
afar.

Both beautiful nonetheless :thumbup:

Not sure how much it weighs, but it's all steel through and through. Well, aside from the carbon and alloy bits here and there.

I knew that question would come, but as of now i actually don't have any.. Guessing around 8kg though, so not exactly light.

Not mine.
Not a complete bike.
But it is steel.

Everything I love. Understated. It looks and must be rock solid. Round pipes, old school headset. I even like that welded Max fork.

Just wanted to share because I'm sure that guys hanging around here will like it too.

If anybody knows a complete setup with some shallow bars, Campa Record, Concor and box tubular wheels... please share!
