I've never had a pair of frames which I felt more comfortable driving in than the TATANO. They'll never fly off my face.
MR. ROSS PINO & HIS MANY BIKES
Mr. Ross Pino is by far and away the real deal. As a model/actor he’s constantly used in photoshoots by brands who are looking to buy his look/story. He’s one of those men out there who is far from being a faker, and so, is why we are sharing his long journeyed story on our featured storytellers section.
The pictures were taken by photographer @GlenAllsop
We know how much love you have for riding. As not only an actor/model but also a father, is there a time limit as to when you’ll stop riding?
I don’t think I’ll ever stop riding. I’ve had 5 bikes and I’ve built every single one of them. It does get harder to find the time with the different loves I have in my life now but for me it’s therapy, so I don’t see it going anywhere.
What’s your favorite thing about older bikes vs newer production bikes?
There’s something inherently beautiful about a carburator. Its imperfection and inexactitude give the bike a soul.
What’s the one thing you can’t ride without?
I think eye protection is extremely important when riding. A helmet will save you from an accident but a good pair of shades will save you from getting into one… water, bugs, sun glare. I’ve never had a pair of frames which I’ve felt more comfortable driving in than the TATANO. They’ll never fly off my face.
