We’ve had a couple of requests for more info on the rack pictured, so here goes: It’s similar to the racks we do for most of our Tournesol builds, being silver-brazed chrome-moly (4130) steel which is nickel-plated when finished. Each rack is built specific to a particular fork, usually for a particular bag. In this case we wanted the flexibility to use a variety of front carriers: the BaileyWorks bag (shown) for shorts trips, a Berthoud randonnee bag for longer treks, or even a wicker basket for true beer (and food) runs.
Fits a hardcase that doesn’t incur airline up-charges
Ti construction protects against scratching and denting, resists TSA’s best efforts
Negligible increase in overall weight with couplers – 1/2 pound, maybe
Use of Edge fork,tweaked brake bridge on rear, and appropriate geometry allows range of 23mm to 29mm tires using short-reach calipers
Is responsive on smooth roads, stable on gravel – a true all-rounder
Steel frame available
This is a new model but could be considered a hybrid of our all-steel Cinghiale Pro model with our ever-popular Strada Bianca. In brief, girlfriend Jenny wanted a stylish commuter-slash-grocery-getter and we thought it might be good to make it compatible with/convertible to dropped bars for longer/faster riding. Thus “Zucchero” – meaning: “sugar”, not the Italian pop singer.
Frame and fork were impeccably welded and painted by IndyFab, custom front bag by BaileyWorks, fork by Martin, adjustable rack by Max, pix by Matisse, design and assembly by Steve for HampCo.
(Two more flatbar/shopping bikes in process, both 650B Tournesol – it seems the people have spoken.)
