    That looks amazing. My experience with those bars is that they work better with the levers rotated further upwards. It gives a more natural riding posture. I keep the bottoms with a very slight 1°-2° tilt, like you appear to have, and try to get the shifter transition nearly flat. Something to consider. That bike is one of my forum faves! The black components complement it well.

    You nailed this... perfect.

    I'm in Westchester now, I'm looking forward to seeing this out on the road.

    Thanks, Jim. It usually takes me a few rides to really nail down the lever position but I'm within milimeters of where my hands are the most comfortable on my first go-round. I like a little bit of curvature down to the tops rather than perfectly flat transition, but it's dang close to what you're suggesting.

    The weather is just starting to turn here in NY so I have been getting out as much as possible.
    I'm having so much fun on this bike. It absolutely loves the roads here in Westchester and Rockland counties.
    It's easy to get caught up in the killer paint job but this bike really does everything well.

    If you really want to go all-black, Kiwi-style, you could get some black powdercoated King stainless bottle cages from Myth Cycles.
    Further to my earlier reply about the model, you can also go through Steve's site via the Gran Paradiso model, under Squadra. I'm pretty sure that's what mine is.

    Artie, I love that bike of yours!!!

    The original and enduring gravel bike. Injuries are catching up so I've had to go short and stocky on the stem. The ascetics bug me, but I haven't been able to move on from this bike. Only wearing 28s right now so I can toss the fenders back on quickly. Will be back on 35s when I'm convinced Nebraska has had it's last snow of the season (probably a month from now).

    On a good bike, which you have, you can dive into some really ill-advised gravel situations on 28s and survive.

    So true. And these Hampsten's are really good bikes.

    Living in rural Nebraska, we have gravel everywhere. I was taking gravel shortcuts on my Giant TCR on 23s when Steve built this for me.

    Great picture. Love the look with the steel fork. Someone with more talent than me should photoshop a mask on them.

    Someone already did some analog photoshop in situ.

    How apt. Hampsten’s bicycles do tend towards a certain stoic, American gothic aesthetic, perhaps inspired by the North Dakota of his youth.

    My Strada Bianca MAX has not been getting a lot of love lately. It was built as my work commuter with 36-spoked wheels shod with heavy Rivendell Jack Browns, a rear rack and lights. I haven't been to the office in over 7 weeks and we were informed that we are not going to return in mass until September... #workfromhome is my new normal.

    So I took the heavy wheels and tires off, flipped the stem down and installed a set of old rim brake Velocity Major Tom tubular rim/White Industry T11 hubs wheels from PSIMET in Chicago, shod with Donnelly LAS cyclocross tires. Just barely fit, but everything rolled nicely in a dry short trail ride before the rains came.

    Except for steel fork and Campy, looks exactly like mine.

    Does your mother know about this?

    At least wash your hands when you get home.
