    thats for f'ing sure. it feels stiff like a love #3 but its super smooth. i dont know how to explain it but its the best of everything for me. design by steve is dead on. all details are nailed. steve rules.

    Funny, I ride a Love#3 and my Hampsten (Kent built frame) 90% of the time ... the Strada Bianca (with 28s) went to Europe this time

    Unfrickinbelivable looking! How long have I been telling you to get one of these in ti, eh?

    When I get back from Tuscany I want to take that for a spin (and you can check out the Strada Bianca). As you would say, Hampco rules!

    update on my hampsten--

    this bike is a fucking race bike. its stiff, handles like a race bike should and its metal so its super comfy. i could sell all my bikes and just keep keep this. (seriously). not because its made of Ti or because it has di2. because steve hampsen designed it and i smile every time i clip in.

    Sounds like the kind of bike that would devastate your collection. I love it!

    MIN, this is rawesome!
    Is this the one that was for sale few months ago? (was built with Ultegra or DA, Regal saddle etc)

    I don't really like the cranks, saddle and bartape (I know you would expect it) but the overall build is well proportionnate and right.

    dude the built is perfect. who cares about the bartape. the saddle and cranks are fine. it looks great and this MIN dude will ride it.

    cheers
