    Gordon, do you have your GP or are you in Steve's queue? Not sure I've seen a post from you with pics...

    Bike sounds awesome. I love my Team Pro. I bet you'd be able to get 27s or even 28s with an ENVE fork, but the clearance will be a little better with the steel fork. And it'll look awesome.

    I've been pondering about that lugged Hampsten ever since I got to know about the company.
    For a fat tire/fender bike titanium tubes just seemed the more practical choice. So went that route for the SB.

    Now that I've sold my damaged Cervelo, I just "needed" a second bike. Perfect excuse for a Team Pro.
    Pegorichie, steel fork, vertical dropouts, fastback seat cluster, short reach setup maxed out for 28s.
    Campy calipers will be close call, if it's too tight I'll go Ultegra 6700 as well, or Campy + 26/27mm. Not too worried about it because I can grab the SBti if I feel like riding fat tires.
    Paint: think Steve's off-white Max with a tiny bit of color detailing.
    Hmmm, I'm sure this one will be fun. :)

    I'm in Steve's queue for a GP TI. This will be my first Hampsten and I'm looking forward to it!

    Thanks. Your bike looks great too:) Re the fenders, there is not a noticeable difference in coverage. On another bike I ran honjos until they broke. They were fine. The PDWs are fine too. Each has their strengths and weaknesses. Truth be told, I think plastic is a better material for fenders --- but it doesn't look as cool. If you don't mind the hassle presented by aluminum fenders, then keep what you have for now. When they break, maybe give the PDWs a shot. Happy riding.

    It's done, but we're working out a few small items on BB30 to crank compatibility prior to shipping. I've been patiently waiting for months, so a little while longer isn't going to hurt anything.

    SB Max steel. White with black script logo and dark red accent stripes on ST and fork (not pictured)

    Gorgeous! Love the dark script on white as well as the red bands. Looking forward to riding with another WI-based Hampstentie this sprin.

    Looks just like my TT bike except mine is fixed gear and has the old font transfers. Smiling Andy always looks good.

    Better looking? Too subjective. More lean, purposeful, and better suited for racking up tons of hard miles? None more Baller IMHO.

    All these bikes are nice. You guys get the idea.

    Bonus points for showing dirty bikes from now on.
