    i'm sure both are great, i was just curious if you could tell any difference in one vs. the other, that's all.

    gorgeous bike. enjoy it!

    Thanks!

    I still run steel forks on a couple of bikes. Probably the nicest riding fork was the one on a Merckx MX Leader. It was very heavy (almost two pounds I think) but it tracked rough corners like nothing else.

    I wanted to share the latest Hampsten w/ the group. Sorry about the picture quality. I'll post an updated picture at a later date.

    Thanks Steve.

    Nice rig, mrowland! 7800 Dura-Ace brakes & shifting is among the best. Love the headset and Edge fork too.

    It's interesting how Steve can impart a Hampco "DNA" on fully custom bikes for different riders. There's still something distinctively Hampsten house about it.

    Nice, you guys are killing me with your new Hampstens. I can't wait for mine to get done.

    My 55 cm Classic ... Reynolds 853 tubes and Alpha-Q CS25 fork ... IF built. The ride is sublime.

    Components: Dura Ace drive train and seatpost, Ultegra 57mm brakes, 120mm -10 degree Thomson stem,
    Pro Vibe bars, SSM Zoncolan saddle, nitto cages, Assault wheels

    Too bad my favorite handlebars don't come in silver!

    Here are the pics ... pretty clean lines, don't you think?

    Problem Solvers make a nice silver seatclamp. That's the only small critique of an otherwise fantastic bike!!

    That really is a nice bike. Enjoy.

    Hey Steve, can you make a midget sized bike (50x53) look this elegant?

    You can lightly sand, then polish the unwrapped portion of the bars - they're silver 'neath the black.

    Thanks for all the nice comments guys! My position and bike set-up preferences definitely mesh well with Steve's design ethic.

    I might order a set of Deda Newton Shallows in the Metal color at some point to "correct" the carbon handlebar issue. I've had 215's before and liked them OK. It's just that the Pro Vibes are so perfectly shaped for me. I have not had to even think about handlebar comfort for the last two years or so since discovering them.

    I do need to get a silver seat post clamp ... that's easy enough.

    Great bike!

    Stick with the PRO bars. IMHO, probably one of the most comfortable modern round bars that works perfectly with today's brake/shift levers. I still have some Newton Shallow's on my old Ridley cross bike, but they feel awkward and archaic in comparison.

    Didn't Ritchey introduce a new set of silver bars and stems? I can't seem to find them anywhere. I recently went through the same dilemma.
