Here at HampCo we’ve distilled our long-standing love of the Spring Classics, sketchy roads, and iffy prose into a single frame; we call it “MAX”. Based on the famed MAX tubeset from Columbus Tubi – which Columbus has re-introduced using their top-notch Niobium tubing – we offer one of the best-selling frames in our catalogue in two exciting flavors:
31.8mm bi-ovalized top tube, 35mm or 38mm bi-ovalized down tube, 37mm-tall chainstays, and appropriate seat stays. We get a frame weight here of about 3.4 pounds, unpainted, in a 55cm frame.
MAX Version Two:
HSS top tube (28.6/31.8 ovalized), 38mm down tube, choice of chain stays, probably 17mm seat stays – a slightly lighter and cushier ride than the Classic but with an equal amount of stiffness where it counts.
