    To follow up. My goals weren't very lofty (finish inside the time limit, enjoy the ride). I finished in 87:25 with 7 hours stopped at each overnight (Loudeac out and inbound, Mortagne on the inbound). I felt good when I got to Mortagne and thought hard about continuing on to the finish which would have gotten me in under 80 hours but decided since I had the place to stay I'd use it.

    Fantastic event.

    Of all the wheels you've put on this, I think I like the Shamals best. Great looking ride. Not in FL anymore?

    This is the third side to my Strada Bianca. Besides a travel bike and winter/fendered bike, it's also a great dirt road bike. Recently put on some DT TK540-rimmed handbuilt wheels with Mavic 30mm tires for some fall riding. First ride had me flashbacking to some of the rides in France last month. Have had lots of great rides and great memories on this bike.

    Discussion of Eriksen frame vs older Moots today got me thinking about this Eriksen-built Hampsten Gran Paradiso. It's a great bike, but very understated. Doesn't call too much attention to itself, but it's always ready to go, in all conditions, on any road, at any pace.

    Sorry, just felt like posting something. Here's a bit of a trip down memory lane. SB parked on the terrace at Hotel Il Perlo Panorama, right on the Ghisallo, summer 2016, Lake Como in the background. Only rode the lower bit to the hotel, but that is one steep mother. Rode from there all the way to Bormio, with a night in Chiavenna, then a 5 pass, 130km day from there.

    Ok. The last thing I need is another bike. I need one of these bikes.

    Tell me about it—I have two of them, both built by Eriksen. I’m thinking of having couplers installed in one them like thomas’, and someday I’ll sell the other one to RichtheRoadie. A coupled Hampsten Strada Bianca ti is the perfect travel bike.

    Or a coupled Gran Paradiso ti as the travel bike. If I were doing it again, I might've switched it around. My trips have been to ride the mountain cols in Europe and the GP might be the better bike for that, by a very slim hair. But I didn't think I would end up with two Hampstens, and if I could only have one, the SB ti is by far the most versatile. As I age out of my bikes, the SB will be the last one in the garage for sure. 'Course, by all official measures, I'm a senior citizen and I'm still adding, not subtracting, bikes.

    On a side note, the Strada Bianca is all the bike you need for a so-called gravel bike. At least for me it is.
