2011 Rossin Marathon Fixie

   2011 Rossin Marathon Fixie

Aesthetically appealing, the 2011 Rossin Marathon Fixie takes pride in its design that is a blend of ’50s ‘bobber’, hip urban fixie, and hardtail mountain bike. While it features retro frame styling and 1in head tube, the bike guarantees advanced handling and ride characteristics.

Traditional looking, the Marathon frame is constructed from the special double-butted chromoly tubing of Rossin. This gives the frame thick track dropouts, neat TIG welds, and stylish seatstay and chainstay bridges. With each pedal stroke, the bike fervently accelerates.

With quick and light handling, the frame of the 2011 Marathon is efficient both for commuting or single-track. Adding to the sorted look is a refined choice of well polished forged aluminum components that offer superb comfort and ergonomics.
