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.)
