    Indeed it is SBti season. How about another pic of that thing, so we can actually see it! Too nice to not post it front and center.

    Some more. I'm loving these 28mm Fairweather for Traveler tires by Panaracer.
    Basically the same tire as Grand Bois or Compass, maybe the sidewall is not as thin but they ride great on both tarmac and gravel/unpaved roads.
    I'll be upgrading to Gilles Berthoud fenders soon... first need to get them powder coated black. The SKS ones just aren't cutting it, too wobbly.

    I know that you have used both the Serotta fork for long reach and the Seven fork-
    Do you think the Serotta fork could potentially work with a standard short reach brake?
    I ask this because it seems that the pads on a long reach brake are adjusted fairly high on the Serotta fork (on mine and others I have seen).

    I am looking for a cool and lightweight carbon fork that will take a 30mm tire.

    I have a WoundUp with fender mounts going spare if that's any use?

    Sorry, I was looking for a fork that would be light.
    If I can't come up with something on the lighter side I might as well have a steel fork made.

    I have the Serotta ARO fork and I'm pretty sure that it will only work with medium-reach brakes. It is basically and F3/S3 fork with 1 cm longer dropouts.

    Don't know about that moniker - I think you need to work pretty hard to reconcile "Hamster" with "Cinghiale" ;-^

    A Hampsten and a pair of Sevens. Not a great poker hand, but in cycling it's a titanium royal flush.

    Is that a replica? Looking at the fork and rear dropouts.

    It's the man's bike. The real deal.

    As in one Davis raced (1988) or was made for him sometime after retirement? I've been wrong before but I don't remember any 7-11 team bikes with carbon forks, sti or the rear dropouts depicted.

    Perhaps it's a replica built for Phinney, but certainly not an original team bike given the drop outs and fork. Nice looking bike none the less ATMO. Steve is sitting on a set of replica TDF lugs and a full decal set if any one is hankering for a lugged knock off.
