Hampsten Cycles Zucchero - I am in love...

And now for something slightly different: Zucchero, wherein Hampsten Cycles brings the performance attributes of a light steel frame and fork a little closer to home. We think Zucchero (meaning “sugar” in Italian, pronounced zuk-KER-ro) is the perfect bike for commuting, fun rides, grocery runs, or simple coffee-shop jaunts. The frame, fork, and optional custom rack can be built as needed for the load-carrying capacity of your dreams.
A simple swap of the handlebars, saddle, and shifters would turn this into a great fendered road bike similar to our Strada Bianca model. We use Reynolds 853 Pro Team for the main triangle and True Temper seat and chain stays. Each frame is designed here at HampCo Seattle then perfectly welded and painted by Independent Fabrication of Somerville, MA; steel fork is brazed in-house by Martin.
