Rossin Team Racing SLX

Hi All!

any thoughts on this Rossin? Itís SLX, and he a full set of Dura Ace 8speed 7402(?).

seems like the price is reasonable? Iíll try to talk him down but the size is perfect for me.

has anyone got experience with these? Any thoughts?

cheers

Yes - it is. (if the condition is as advertised and everything works - the rear derailleur is 7400 8 speed though while the rest of the D-A parts look like 7700 - the cassette looks like a downmarket option also as it is not chrome plated )

At 520$ or so (450 euros) - its a deal - SLX frame in your size ? whats not to like

They definitely look 7400 series and not 7700 -- i was looking at them from a bad angle i guess ---- maybe its just the crankset that is the newer one. Regardles, it is almost as if you are buying a frameset and getting the parts for free at that price, but if you can get a better price, even sweeter

Thanks for the input! Youíre helping me mentally justify a new bike 🤭 no clue where it will go in the apt.

One more Q for anyone who knows - will the DA7402 front derailleur work with the compact DA7700?

...probably, but with a tab mounted front derailleur like that bike has, how well it works depends on how much you shrink down the chainwheels. Yu're limited in how far you can drop it down. Not sure why anyone would want to put a compact crank on that. That DA setup is similar to what I have on a couple of my own bicycles, and it works very well.

A Rossin with chrome front "socks"??
I find that a bit unusual.....
The rear chrome coverage does not look Italian either.... Looks more like what you'd see on a French bike.....

Only Rossin's two top frames got this chrome/paint pattern.

So it's either a Ghibli or a Prestige.

Is there a way to tell? I have also seen this paint job before on other Rossins

I think the Ghibli is the one built with SLX tubing.

My Ghibli has chromed "socks," forks and stays, but it has what Rossin called "rippled" tubing. Folks here describe it as "fluted." It was uniquely shaped in house of SLX.



Perhaps you'll find one of the few Rossin catalogues online elucidating?.

Congrats if you got it!
That should be a very nice C&V ride.
Just make sure you don't park it at locations like that in the pic where bike theives would certainly notice it.
It would literally take them less than a minute to go through that U lock with a portable grinder.....

Great score very nice bike +2 on not leaving it outside the chrome and paint are great and show no fade or weather aging which you typically see on bike this age with this style paint if left outside good chance you could see both in a fairly short time.. Store this one inside in cool dry place without direct sun light.
