    Default FS: Hampsten Single Speed

    First off, apologies for the cut-n-paste, cross-post nature of the ad...
    Up for sale is my Hampsten Single Speed/Fixed Gear Frameset.
    It is essentially a copy of my Crema but set-up for single speed and/or IGH use.
    Frame Particulars:
    The dropouts are Paul Component’s Single-Speed dropouts.
    Fork is a Wound-up with just a hair under 5cms of steerer left above the CK top cap
    Colour is British Racing Green
    Tire sizes range from 25s with fenders and 33s/Jack Browns without fenders
    Geometry Particulars:
    TT length: 57cm
    ST length: 60.5 (center to top of the ST)
    HT length: 172 mm
    ST angle: 73 degrees
    HT angle: 72.5 degrees
    Rear dropout spacing: 130 mm
    Fit Particulars:
    With an Ultegra post (21mm of setback), saddle height (with an Aliante) set at 77.5 cms, and a Thomson X2 120mm I had about 57.5 cm of reach
    Condition:
    The frameset is in excellent condition save for a few dropout marks and the hint of a few faint scrapes where some fulcrum clamps were mounted when I was running a Sturmey Archer IG Hub. The fenders are the original set from my Crema that were utilized for the SS. The front fender had to be re-positioned and, thusly, has two addition mounting holes (that are hidden underneath the front brake caliper)
    Price Particulars:
    $1300.00 for Frame/Fork/Chris King HS/Hammered Honjo 35mm fenders & Sheldon nuts/Thomson Seat Clamp and Matching, BRG Deda Bartape shipped within the Continent.

    Sidebar: I also have a Sturmey Archer/VelocityA23 wheelset and a Sugino RD2 175mm Crank w/ a 42T ring & 103 mm VO Grand Cru BB that can be included in the deal for a good price.

    Fire away with any questions as I‘m sure I forgot something.

    Thanks for looking.
    Cheers

    Nice bike dude. Are you using long reach road brakes? Strada B geometry?

    Sorry for the quick bump, but I'm now including the Sturmey-Archer/Velocity A23 wheelset in the $1300.00 asking price.
    cheers

    Thursday... I'll see how it looks. Believe it or not I've actually put thought into getting a single speed road bike and this is pretty much my size, with a bit of possible tweaking on the fit. We'll see. I'll be in touch if it would work.

    I hate it when cool bikes show up right at pay time. Looks like I'm gonna own a Hampsten.... This will probably replace my Redline. I need an intervention but this one is just too cool to pass up. And I love the color! This will look good bombing around the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul when I move back there!

    Nice! My short time on this forum has led, directly, to me owning a Hampsten and now a Gaulzetti. I guess I just need one of those red and white bikes and a Zanc' to complete the kit. Oh and a Spooky! Or an intervention, I suppose it could go either way.

    I have a Zanc in just your size that I might be willing to trade for one of your equally impressive bikes...

    I love single speed road bikes- they are super fun if you get the gearing right for your terrain.

    Glad this most awesome bike is staying in the vs family.
