here's my finished rossin , so I wonder how many of this bikes left these day ?



Hi rOeLez,

I've found the correct handlebars now. I wonder if I could ask you to take a photo of the handlebar clamps on your Rossin so I can see what they look like? I am currently drawing up plans for the engineer to make some for my forks but I haven't found a good enough photo to determined the actual shape/dimensions of them.

If this is possible, I'd be very grateful!

Cheers,
Matt

I have scoured the interdawebs and found some great photos of a Rossin Pursuit (I think someone on here sent me the link previously to the ebay sale). There is a closeup of the clamps on the Rossin which I have used to design the clamps on my Rossin.

I am visiting an engineer this weekend to get them made in steel! Fingers crossed!

More photos of that Rossin on my flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/70100161@N ... 174797135/

P.S. It bugs me that the clamps are rounded and attach to a square base on the forks. Maybe I get a square version made too...

^^^ Here you can easily see the square clamp on the forks. I think this looks much better and matches the design of the forks.

Here is v3 Clamp Design. Square to match the forks but curved slightly to fit the bolt in nicely.

Cheers Richard,

Hope you're enjoying your time off.
Don't think i'll get the curved ones made, they just don't look right on the forks. Square ones all the way!
