Maglia ROSA: race bikes for a team that never quite existed. Inspired by Italy, designed in Seattle, ready for you.
Our new all-purpose do-everything steel road frame – remember those? – is called Il Barone and sports round tubes from Columbus’ ELOS, Spirit, and Zona catalog and is intended as a great all-day, training, or rough road race bike and will fit 28mm tires just fine. Features:
BB: English threaded
Head tube: good old 36mm
Fork: Enve Road 2.0
Price is $3200 and we’ll include the appropriate King headset; seatpost is 27.2mm, front der is 31.8mm clamp.
Levico is our tribute to the one-off steel frame Dario Pegoretti built for Hampsten Cycles as a 20th anniversary nod to Andy’s 1988 Giro win – including his TT win at Levico Therme. We take the rear end from Il Barone, add the welded front triangle – using traditionally-sized 28.6mm/31.8mm tubes – and steel fork from our Hampsten Team Pro and it looks classic and rides great.
Price is $3200 and we’ll include 1″ King headset; seatpost is 27.2mm, front der is 31.8mm clamp.
In over-sized lightweight steel we are proud to offer our Superissimo frame, carefully hand-crafted from the largest diameters of Columbus’ Omnicrom tubing. Features:
BB: English threaded
Head tube: 46/56mm internal
Fork: Columbus Futura or Enve
Price is $3300 and we’ll include the appropriate King headset; seatpost is 27.2mm, front der is 31.8mm clamp
For those wanting custom carbon we’re thrilled to offer our Squadra frame in our classic style using round main tubes or we can use bi-ovalized tubing for a more modern look. We build these utilizing tube-to-tube construction which easily allows for a variety of rider sizes. Features:
Head tube: 46mm for King Inset headset or similar
Fork: Columbus Futura or Enve tapered
Price is $4000 for the basic frame, clearcoated with decals, and paint is $400 and up. We’ll include the appropriate headset and BB; seatpost is 27.2mm, front der is 35mm clamp.

As with all current Hampsten frames each is built to order, will take a few months, and includes limited lifetime warranty.
