1998 Rossin Krono

Before I bought this frame set I contacted Andrea Chiarini at Grouppo Bici Srl (Rossin) to see if I could find out some additional info. He was very generous with his time and information about the frame set, although his reply left me wanting to know more about who it was built for and it's history. Below is the reply Andrea sent me. "Thanks for your message and for your Rossin product' enquiry. Hoping that my extra info below would be helpful to you. We are talking about a special frame from the Rossin production. That frame, named "Krono", was made with special alloy tubes made from Columbus under the specifications requested by the Rossin' technicians. That frame was proudly made in the Rossin workshop in Milano. Considering the serial number, considering the fork and for some other details, it seems that your frame was produced around 1998/1999 and previously sold by Math Salden as official distributor in that period. Furthermore the unconventional serial number suggest to us that probably the frame set was made for a professional or Olympic rider. That frame was only made to measure with a special type of TIG welding with the characteristic to use more material than classic TIG welding then the extra material would be removed by an artisan and expert hand in order to feel a smooth connection between the tubes. Of course the special alloy material used for that frame request a special heat treatment after the welding operation. At your disposal for any further information if needed. Let me show you our personal complements for your special Rossin frame set. P.s: the color of your frame was named "Twin silver shadow" Best Andrea Chiarini "

Cheers! I think the name of the color describes the effect well, the bike appears almost silver when you view front on and blue when viewed from the back.
