Ross Signature 290S Single Speed, 25"/63cm Lugged Ishiwata Cro-Moly - *SOLD*

Ross Signature 290S Single Speed, 25"/63cm

The base of this build is a Ross Signature 290S frame made of lugged Ishiwata EX triple-butted cro-moly. Ross made some clunkers back in the day, but their Signature line put out some high end bikes, and this 290S is one of the nice ones. Built up as a hearty commuter, suitable for rough city streets, with a single speed drivetrain. This bike has been completely rebuilt with a reconditioned headset and a sealed cartridge bottom bracket. Features Matrix rims, nice and wide, built into a nice wheelset with the rear wheel being completely re-laced by hand with a new hub set up for single speed. Features a honey brown leather saddle and shellac'd handlebar tape that give this bike a touch of class. Setup as a coast-able single speed with a 52/18 ratio. This bike is ideal for riders 6'0" and up.
