    Chris from Velo Orange is at the Tapiei show. They posted some photos of threadless stems they're considering stocking in the current entry on the VO blog. How about this one:



    I have no idea if this fits 26.0 (the gorgeous Nitto track stem that looks like this is 25.4) or what sizes it come in, but it's hard for me to see how something like this would fail to look good on any Hampsten or Tournesol. They showed a lugged version as well:

    I'm not too sure about that style. It's certainly far prettier than most threadless stems designed in the "brutalist" style, but there's just something about those fillet brazed curves.

    The top one looks like the filet brazed Nitto I have on my fixed gear. Odd, but it's 1 1/8" steerer x 25.4 clamp and just what I needed. Only thing I don't like about it is that it's only available in 0*/90*!

    With this being the Hampco/Tournesol gallery, please use it to post photos of your Hampsten or Tournesol. All this chit chat is general discussion content and is preventing Steve H from feeling obliged to post more photos.

    Regards,

    Future gallery participant

    As long as the fenders are real metal \m/ I'm all over it.

    Hey, plastic stretches right?


    PS. Every night I say a little prayer for you to grow around 4 inches taller. That is how much I care about you bro. :boy_hug:

    JimD, I love the color you pick for your bikes. I hope you don't mind if I copy them. Your Tournesol looks very similar to the Goodrich I'm dreaming of...

    Beautiful, Jim. I really like that you can run fenders with Jack Browns. I can't quite do that with my Davidson, so it's one of my good reasons for another bike.

    Default Color - No Problemo

    The paint on my Tournesol is 'Baffin Blue' as I recall it's a standard Imron color.

    The color choice was inspired by DBRK's Homer Hilsen. Hampco chose the decal set.

    It is gracious of you to ask if I mind about your choosing the color but I don't have any sense of ownership of that. Curt will know exactly what paint it is.

    Default Actually...

    You can have your cake and eat it too.

    The Tournesol and my custom Rivendell are fun bikes. They ride differently and nicely enough that I have the fun problem of deciding which to ride.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I think I speak for most on this board. We hate you for that picture.

    That said, DAMN! that is a beautiful bike. :adore:
