Interesting... Meaning Basso bought out or absorbed Rossin? Because they both existed seperately for some years...

Hah! Greg, good point.? I think it got derailed there but great addition.? I just recently learned that Rossin eventually became Basso.? As for the Rossin branded lugs and BB shells, I do agree with Sterling that I think it's a case of a builder using what parts were immediately available.? It sounds nice that way, no?

Hi All,

Both Rossin and Basso built Pogliaghi frames, but I'm not sure which? was first. My best memory says that it was first Rossin, then Basso.? But my best memory is only, er, um, what were we talking about?

Greg Overton wait, who am I? Denver, Co area of the USA
