    Happycamper,
    Beautiful bike! What tires are those? I Just bought a stainless Classic here from Mat and I want to set up some wheels with larger tires. I'll post pictures once I have it all together.

    Steve,

    Has the Crema been resurrected?

    Fermaguiana: Crema: RIP

    Crema Hampsten Cycles

    P.S. steve575, they're Dugast's Pippistrello 'cross tires in 32mm. This is the "D2R2 build." I have two other sets of wheels for the bike—Ambrosio's with FMB Paris-Roubaix 27mm (for winter riding with fenders), and Enve 1.45's with Dugast Paris-Roubaix silk in 25mm (just for kicks).

    Hampsten bikes are aesthetically perfect IMO. Hampstens and Zancs and Fireflys.

    Nice bike, Bill. Are you using the Grand Cru long reach brakes? Had the chance to form any opinions on them?

    Yes, these are the VO Grand Cru brakes (technically mid-reach, as I understand it). Haven't had a chance to test them under extreme conditions, but they feel pretty much like a caliper brake should. The pads were swapped for Dura-Ace pads, which probably helps.

    P.S. To xeladragon, it's not just that they are aesthetically pleasing—the handling and ride quality are just right.

    That's what's great about these bikes. Such versatility. I love that you have Enve 1.45s and and a wheelset w/ 32mm Dugasts for the same bike.
    I'm going to order a set of the FMB P-R 27s to go with the 24mm Vitoria Pave clad Nemesis wheelset I already have.

    Hey Rick, this is really Steve's territory -- I couldn't tell you what difference it would make between FC measurements, or on BB drop (though 4.5 does sound shallow, most of my stuff has been 6+). I gave Steve my specs, and told him that I really liked how my Pegoretti rode, and he went from there. Steve got it right on this one, for sure.

    Can you tell me what difference it would make to handling, if any, and how you adjust the front centre for each rider
    The only other diff is Cody has a 7cm drop mine in 4.5cm , does this affect it or is it a riders position behind the bb?
    I am at 8.5cm (Aliante saddle tip)
    Many thanks
    Rick

    Here's my contribution, just received. A Gran Paradiso Ti by Eriksen. I know this sounds like a broken record, but Steve was great to work with. Thanks Steve!
