    Honestly though, I've heard myself saying this before: "this ... bike/frame is perfect and it's here to stay for a looong time". 1-3 years later they were sold.

    But the Strada Bianca really is different. I couldn't ask for anything else in a bike.
    Custom fit, durable titanium, no paint/rust to worry about. Wide range of tire options, full fender option. It's all there.
    Sure, a nicely painted lugged steel version of this would be sweet. But does it add something other than looks and a slightly different ride feel? Not really.
    The uniqueness factor is cool too, appearantly it's the only Hampsten in the Netherlands right now.

    Who knows, maybe something will be added to my stable in the future, but I don't see any reason to sell the SBti.

    Classic! Steve squarely hits the mark, doesn't he? Nice touch with the seatpost!. Neutrons/Nucleons on a ti Hampsten -- the ride is mahhhhvelous.
    Congrats!

    Wound Up has that 20 year old fork that works with 1 1/8" headtubes. It's probably about time they start making some forks for tapered headtubes before Enve puts them out of business.

    INDECS, you decided to go with the WoundUp rather than the Seven? How do you like the WU fork? Pretty bike. Mine is just like yours except for having s&s couplers. And yours has a level TT, which looks quite nice. Enjoy it!

    Thanks!
    Yeah, discussed it with Steve and he said either fork would be fine and pretty similar ride-wise. So I went with WU as I think it looks better on a ti frame like the SB. I had a 1" steel steerer version on my old Litespeed and liked that, so easy decision.

    Lucky bastard. My wife doesn't allow my bikes up on the couch - they have to stay on the floor.

    Default Strada Bianca S&S

    A few updated pics. Not sure whether to keep the Nitto post or go with 30.9 Fizik. Nitto has been trouble-free, so reluctant to swap out for a black post.

    Excellent choice of tires, btw. Paves/Open Paves look great on ti Hampstens!

    I think black would complement the stem and fork and visually tie together the front and rear ends of the bike. Right now you have black front (HS, stem, fork and tape) but mostly silver rear (post and clamp; saddle does tie it together somewhat).

    I have the Fizik (in 31.6) and it's a very good post. You might want to measure setback on the Nitto and compare to the Fizik for aesthetics. One plus with the Fizik is that the bottom cradle is very long and allows lots of adjustability.

    But everyone has their own opinion on what looks good:) I'll have to go through the same considerations on my to-be-built ti GP -- but I do know I'm going with white saddle and tape as on my previous build.

    No pics. Forum fine in effect. Supply beer at next meetup.
    Auk's words to live by:
    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    At this point pics won't cut it. You can drop the bike and beer off at my place this weekend. I'll return the bike after the penalty has been assessed.

    I've got the Zipp Service Course on my SBTi and really enjoy that bend.

    Way overdue but finally built! I had some delay due to two(!) sealed but incomplete Campy cable sets…

    Neutrons and Veloflex 22mm for now. Just did a quick 15 minute spin around the block to compare it to my Moots Compact. It was short by I like it! Steve and Max got it right.
    Really calm and stable bike, but not sluggish. Eats up rough stuff pretty nice. Handling takes a little getting used to, but I guess that's normal.
    My position on the bike feels natural and relaxed due to a slightly lower BB and longer HT and higher bar position.
    I also like the bent chainstays… no more hitting them with my Fizik shoes!

    Seatpost is a ti Chorus that I brushed to match the frame. GC calipers + Kool Stop = stopping power!

    Will do a longer ride with the Neutrons this week and after that I'll slap on those handbuilts with Grand Bois 32mm… can't wait to test/compare them!
    Any rides to report?

    Easy fellas…. the Miami traffic gods put the kibosh on picking up the bike. Finally picked it up yesterday morning. I will post a pic this evening in the current build state, Spent last night tweaking stuff and setting up the wheel sets… I did however take it for a quick spin on SoBe yesterday during my lunch (Sneakers and jeans). It is delightfully stiff and smooth. Beer fine no problem..
