Cambio Rino Pista

Dude, Rino's. Never heard of em till I traded a wheelset for the frame. This was built in Canada under Gardin. Very wild geo, def a custom build. Seat tube is 55, top is 52, bb is hella high. Rides like a monster. Haven't found another Rino Pista anywhere. Every piece of tube has a panto or engrave. Chrome underneath.

Frame:
Cambio Rino

Fork/Headset:
Soma Cro-mo 1inch, Cane Creek 40

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Gipiemme Pista 165, crazy panto engraved paint job, etched "Chirico Bussero" on the arms.

Pedals:
MKS Sylvans, Soma xl, Plemans doubles.

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
EAI 17t, Salsa 47t

Derailleurs/Shifters:
No thank you

Handlebars/Stem:
Random 1in mtb flipped upside down for pursuing stuff, wide bars

Saddle/Seatpost:
Uno 26.6, gross old San Marco

Brakes:
No thank you

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
OG Suzue Disco 36h Mavic Open Sport, Vic Rando

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
OG Suzue Disco 36h Mavic Open Sport, Vic Rando

I checked out your bike, looks awesome and very very very rare. There were few gardin track bikes ever made and they made bikes for almost 20 years. Gardin was only making Rino frames from about 1980-1983 and ive never ever seen a Rino track bike before. The story is that Joe Gardin had exclusive rights to distrobution of Cambio Rino Components in Canada and the USA, he asked them if he could build bikes under their name and he made some really high end ones for a year or two. Then he started to cheap out, making some high end bikes but mostly garbage quality bikes with shit low end suntour components. Rino found out and got mad so they stripped him the right to distribute their parts or build bikes with their name. Then he just started making Gardin bikes, typically in better quality.

Also, thanks for the info. Kinda what I deduced as well. Seriously tho, haven't found another Rino track frame amd judging by the wild geometry this was a one-off for someone.

Definitely. This build could go a lot of different ways, might as well make it worthwhile.
