Boschetti Rino?

Hello,

I just picked up a bicycle made by "Boschetti Rino", I'm guessing from the early-90s.

The paint job is nice, it has Columbus tubing, and the price seemed fair, so I grabbed it....

Does anyone know anything about this maker? I can't seem to find anything out online, other than they are from Marano (I think?).


Thanks,messy.

Only Rino I heard of was the Italian component maker called Cambio Rino. If they also made complete bikes I've never seen one, and their parts were so-so: they were sold as a 2nd-rate line and generally they were, but sometimes you got pretty good value for the money (sometimes just junk). I know there was a strong Canadian connection with Cambio Rino at one point cause one maker there imported the line and used it on much of what he sold (was it Gardin? I forget)

Rino is a very common first name in Italy. IT is also common for a class of people in Italy to always list their last name first, followed by their first name. The shop owner (or perhaps builder, however this is unlikely) is therefore Rino Beschetti.

The address is:
CICLI BOSCHETTI RINO
Via Del Commercio 18/26,
41054 - MARANO SUL PANARO (MO)

Yes, it was Gardin. They were big boosters of the stuff, but it was no better than equipment from Ofmega or Gipiemme at the time.

Sorry to resurrect an old topic, but I have a bit of info about Boschetti. It all started when I was travelling Europe for 2 years and decided I wanted to build a single speed or fixed gear out of an old 80s steel frame. I found a frame on eBay from a guy in Poland, he shipped it to meet me while I was in Copenhagen. I already had 3 bikes with me and couldn't imagine a 4th so I never even opened my frame. It travelled with me through 25 countries in Europe and Asia for about 18 months while I worked for a travelling show. On our last break I brought it back to the US to build up as a low buck bike to ride while staying in LA. When I opened the box and checked out the frame it was far too nice to build a low buck bike, so it quickly evolved into a late 80s early 90s Superbe Pro/Sprint bike. I found lots of NOS and very good Suntour parts along with a Cinelli XA stem and some NOS vintage Cinelli bars. Shortly after I sent the bike off to get powder coated I found Rino Boschetti on Facebook of all places. He had just joined, his friend list was only 3, so I sent him a friend request, and he has been very helpful with my project - he even sent me NOS frame stickers!

So, if you're interested in the Boschetti frames and bikes you can contact Rino on Facebook - search Boschetti Bicycles.

Joe Gardin, a Canadian business man, formed the company that built Cambio Rino bicycles. Most of the components fitted to the higher end models were Rino components.

Business problems caused, well problems, for Joe and the Cambio Rino died a sudden death, only to rise again as the Gardin bicycle. And I have had a few of those also.

There were some incredibly kick butt Cambio Rino and Gardin bicycles, but, for the most part, the assembly quality was not all that great.

I am working on a lower-end model from a high-end Italian builder right now. It has a Cambio Rino crank set, bottom bracket and seat post. The Campagnolo components are the lower-end Nuovo Gran Sport. Looks like the Cambio Rino stuff enabled the builder to use components manufactured in Italy, as opposed to Japanese components, consistent with the lower final price point they were aiming at.
