    Colossi Rambler Road Bike

    I'm looking to buy a steel frame road bike and a shop in my town pointed me towards Colossi, which is evidently a builder in China run by a Dutch ex-pro that builds bikes for some of the larger European brands but also sells frames under his own Colossi brandname and does custom work. Specifically, I'm looking at the Colossi Rambler Road. It appears similar to some of the other bikes I'm looking at (All-City Mr Pink, Some Smoothie). Has anyone had any experience with Colossi frames, the Rambler Road in particular?

    never heard of it but it looks decent. It has zona tubing like the Mr Pink but unlike Mr Pink it has a threaded BB. But looks like a decent modern steel frame.

    from what I know after some emails exchange, the frame weight is 1.9kg and the fork's about 0.35kg (full carbon fork), the Max Tire is 25C, maybe some 28C would fit, a single color custom paint, you may choose any pantone color, with gloss, matte or satin for the finish, also 3 options of decal font type
    for a $500 frameset I kinda think it's worth it, I almost pull the trigger but decided to pick an old gazelle frameset from ebay (not much difference on frame weight, fit 30c)

    I'm based in HK and have a Colossi steel road bike.

    Nice guys. Good frames. Can't comment on that model in particular though.

    Colossi makes a nice track bike, I can't imagine their road bikes not being as nice.
    Hey guys, lets go play bikes! Strava
