Superissimo is our steel race frame aimed at medium-to-large riders and it features Columbus Spirit HSS shaped top and down tube, MAX chainstays, SL seat stays and Life seat tube, choice of BB, D-11-sized head tube, and the price includes a Falz or Enve carbon fork and King D-11 headset. A larger head tube for a tapered 43mm Enve fork is available for an extra $200.
Also for your consideration is our SuperLeggera variant: same sexist tube shapes and wall thicknesses/butt profiles/alloy from Columbus but now with new smaller diameters – Columbus calls this their “Spirit” line. We like it as we can build a great frame for those who like to ride up hills fast and aren’t built like rugby players, or want the lightest steel frame we can build. We prefer to build this with a threaded BB shell, “normal” 1.125″ headset, and choice of Falz or Minimal fork.
Current paint choices are Squadra Azurra (shown), ’71 Cuda Plum Crazy, BMW Delphin Grey, and Verdigris (green/gray) but we’ll listen to requests for custom colors that work with our cream and pink decals – think blues, grays, etc. We’re asking $2800 and these are being designed with slightly racier geometries than the Hampsten frames. Each frame is built to order and will take a few months.
