It was pretty rad before but now, hot damn! I love these types of bikes. Where every part is selected or fabricated to be the lightest or stiffest in the goal of making the machine as fast as possible.

Hard Rossin Pursuit.

March 21, 2011

Believe it or not, this Rossin pursuit actually started out as a road frame. It came into possession of the talented and dedicated designer/artist/fabricator named Olli Erkkila, and he was inspired to recreate it as a lo-pro… read more

Whether or not this bike is a hack-job, it looks absolutely rad as f***ing hell and I have to give big shouts to Oli, the brain behind such a killer machine.

I know Sparky wanted something special so he got an integrated seat post with custom expanding seat post stub to allow some adjustment should he change his seat or such things. Being a fair weather bike his bottom bracket got pretty heavily drilled and I carried this through to other areas such as the seat tube sleeve and modified Columbus Max crown. Yep couldn’t leave it alone, so I filled the window and drilled the tangs to make sure it tied in perfect with the frame.

The other main feature of this bike is the internal cable routing, with the rear brake cable exiting the rear of the seat tube, the rear derailleur cable exiting the bottom of the seat stay and the front derailleur cable coming straight out the back of the bottom bracket shell. Finished with a mix of Campagnolo parts this is one awesome road machine.

Yes it is, it’s a beaut. Donhou, it’s fair to say that you are currently ‘smashing it’. That’ll be street slang for ‘doing really well’. I think a trip to the workshop is on the cards. Congrats also to Sparkes, this is one lovely piece of kit you have, pal.
