Yes, the name is cribbed from Casey and his site of the same name. He did the graphic design work for Maglia ROSA and we owe him many thanks for his clear vision, great ideas, and complete lack of screwing around. (Ok, Ernesto did a lugged frame back in the 1980s with the same name but we never felt that his heart was really in it.)
Superissimo is our steel race frame and it features Columbus Spirit HSS shaped top and down tube, MAX chainstays, Spirit seat stays and Life seat tube, Paragon PF30 BB shell, D-11-sized head tube, and the price includes a Falz carbon fork and King D-11 headset. Current paint choices are Squadra Azurra (shown) and Verdigris (as seen on the carbon) but we’ll listen to requests for custom colors that work with our cream and pink decals – think blues, grays, etc. We’re asking $2700 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.
Superissimo – for when the big boss says “win!”
