It didn't sprint uphill quite like my Colnago, but it was in all respects a world-class bicycle and in no way a compromise. The purchase price isn't cheap, but not buying a bunch of other bikes....

    Darren, I think - considering that you'll most likely be giving these as Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza presents to your loved ones - that you may want to get them straight from RKP.

    So as to, you know, not be disappointed.

    I've been trolling this thread long enough... Eric M. on the build list and I'm getting tantalizingly close to the top! I'll be posting pics, but to pique your interest the ST/TT come in at 64.0/61.2.

    I can't make myself mount fenders and 25mm tires… the Cypres 32mm + Challenge latex are so nice!
    But the roads and bikepaths are constantly wet now that the temps are dropping. Haven't ridden in the rain yet, but I don't think I can postpone those fenders any longer. (Although the forecast looks for next week looks dry and sunny :) )
    Anyway, ordering tonight. I think I'm gonna go with SKS 35mm as I'm afraid 42mm Bluemels are just too wide for the WoundUp.

    Good luck ! It took me all this weekend to set up my fenders. That is; all of my free time. I didn't want to rush into it and it's a good thing I did because what everybody on this forum and in relevant posts elsewhere has been saying again and again turned out to be true : it takes time to do it right.
    Must say I opted for metal fenders but it meant no riding on my new bike as yet.

    True, you gotta be patient installing those things. I did it once on my commuter and I believe it took at least 3-4 hours untill I was done/satisfied.
    Had to bend, modify and dremel quite a bit because the clearances were everything but ideal on that bike. But… they've been rock solid ever since.

    Dear Santa.
    I've been a good boy this year and would really like a Hampsten jersey/shirt/cap/..any swag at all (to purchase of course) to go with my shiny new bike.

    As promised I :
    Stopped chasing dangerous women.
    Resumed my 3 day a week riding schedule.
    Adhered to the rules of the V.
    Made the pilgrimage to the Russian River Brewery and found Damnation, Salvation and Supplication.
    Watched the 88 Paris Roubaix on youtube once a month.
    and most of all… bought a Hampsten.


    Yours truly..

    Quick update of the Strada Bianca. The TRP brakes work great, look nice—what more could you want?* Switched the Seven fork for a Serotta ARO. The ARO is much smoother, but as Steve noted in an email exchange with me back when we were debating fork options, it's a bit like a skinny supermodel—the 27mm FMBs are pretty close to the limit. Better pictures to come...

    *Well, for christian, they're forged and not cnc'ed...

    So I promised Steve I'd post this beauty up.
    1st I'll start with a little insight on this bike. Fletcher and Sonny prolly got real tired of my Hampco ramblings while on rides and it took me forever to pull the trigger and send in my deposit.
    I wanted an LDV. No, I wanted a Strada Bianca. No, I wanted a LDV. No, I wanted a Strada Bianca. I went back and forth... What I really wanted was both; Steve calls it the La Dolce Strada.

    What we did (and I have to give Steve some credit for being keenly intuitive in reading through my emails and in talking to me) was combine both bikes. What you see below is a La Dolce Vita tubeset matted to a Seven Fork for long reach calipers in Strada Bianca geometry. I have to say it came out better than I had hoped, in fact its the mirror image of what I had in my mind when I 1st sent in my deposit. Currently its got Pave's in 27mm under Honjo 35mm fenders. Pave's measure out to 29mm on those wide rims and there's plenty of room, just what I wanted.

    I'm thrilled and think I'll keep this one for a long time. To me its almost too damn pretty for what I designed it for; Mud, rain, gravel, dirt, pavement. Ride report to follow once I get it dirty.....

    That ain't no rock. That's pave.

    How did it end up in Connecticut?

    Glue it to a nice varnished piece of walnut and you got a P-R trophy

    Mmmmm.... I like the lines of the ARO much better than the Seven. But I am wondering what you were looking to accomplish with the new fork -- ride quality? Sounds like the clearances are similar to the Enve road fork, so unless someone wanted the "traditional" SB clearances for 32ish tires what would be the advantage of the ARO/ med-reach brake setup with 27/28s vs the Enve with short-reach brakes and a 27/28? I know with your bike you're retrofitting to a med-reach fork so the Enve's not on the table. I imaging one partof the answer answer might be aesthetics; the ARO and the Falz have a similar smooth curve vs the straight-bladed Enve or the Seven curve....

    Regardless, I've always drooled over this frame as the proto-typical ti SB -- perfect in all ways. Looking forward to more pictures with the new fork!
