Da Boyz: Andy and Steve Hampsten

HampCo Towers; home of fine bicycle design, assembly, and frame and fork fabrication:

Steve Hampsten works with customers on fitting and design, orders/ships, pays bills, wrenches, wrangles animals, and does all the other stuff.

Adam Deemer wrenches, assembles, and builds wheels. Adam comes to us from Independent Fabrication in Somerville, MA, and now works at Montlake Bicycle Shop here in Seattle. He’s also our resident disc brake expert.

Martin Tweedy Martin and Steve worked together at match bicycle company in 1997-98 and have worked together on Hampsten Cycles since 1999. Mr. Tweedy builds all of our lugged frames and brazed forks.

Peter Graham, ex Mad Fiber wheels, is in charge of our carbon frame fabrication here at HampCo. Peter has a long history of working with carbon fiber and is a heck of a good dad to boot.

Steel frames are being welded and painted by the gang at R & E Cycles in Seattle.

Kent Eriksen & Brad Bingham are building our titanium frames in Steamboat Springs, CO.

Custom paint is by Russ at Air Art in Chico, CA or Adam at Now You’re Finished in Seattle.

Andy’s day job – Cinghiale Cycling Tours – is where we go to relax, ride, and have fun in Italy.

Previous builders: these folks all built for us in the past and have since moved on. We’re still pals, they’re busy, it’s not you it’s me, etc.:
