    Tried the PRs they felt a bit tractor like on the
    road. I'm rolling pretty good on the rolys.
    My fitness is better now. I really want to try
    the ultremos next. Your bike looks epic as
    always... I need to come try those killer
    roads you're always on. Cheers!!

    Ultremos are great. I've both raced crits and ridden ugly gravel (don't ask Brandon how much I whined) on a pair of 25s. Tons of miles and they're just now starting to show wear. They even look sharp on a regular old bike, so they'd make your Hampsten look smoove.

    I'm running a pair of Ultremo 28s with latex tubes on TB-14 rims and they are very smooth, although I still like my Veloflex Roubaix tubulars:)

    Nice to see people compare all the big clinchers. I'm also curious about the Gran Bois and where they fit in. Wish I could fit the Challenge Strade Bianche or Almonzo in my Enve 1.0 fork, but I'm guessing they'd be too fat at the Ultremos (measuring 29mm on my TB-14s) don't have much extra clearance.

    Yes. The Challenge Parigi Roubaix tend to relax and lean towards a 29 more than 27. I had a brief chat with via email with Steve H. regarding this and he schooled me.
    The Gran Bois are definitely on the radar. Do you know if they run true to size? Because if the Cert 26 runs fat it could be very cool at around 27ish..

    Tires are fun... who knew??

    Good to hear... what are you going to ride at the GTR/RBX ? Rick and I were speculating over a Green Flash Black IPA today..

    Not sure. Probably the Rock Lobster with ruffy tuffys. Depends on whether I plan to race on Sunday.

    I've got GB extra leger Cerf 26's on my GPti. On my DA9000 C24 rims, they measure a hair more than 26. Say 26.5. I imagine on wider rims, they'd plump up to 27-28 easy.

    The tires ride nicely. Better than the Vittoria CX 25's? Yes.

    Clinchers to clinchers, right? Or are you comparing them to the Vittoria CX25 tubulars? Inquiring minds want to know....

    Better get us back on Hampsten vs tires (even though I love tire info). A few more pre-build shots of yesterday's delivery:

    Classic Hampsten aesthetics; Enve fork logo will be changed to stealth thanks to kokies.

    DSC_0073.JPG

    Can Max weld or what?

    DSC_0074.JPG

    Can you say "fat chainstay?" And hooded dropouts too!

    DSC_0079.JPG

    It's now about half built up. More pics when done, and a few more when it gets dirty, just for Darren....

    I liked the Ultremo ZX a lot

    But I can recommend the new Schwalbe One even more highly, they feel even faster. More cut-resistant too, while not losing anything in grip. They come in tubular and tubeless versions as well!

    Great to hear! I've had my eye on them for when my tire stash dwindles.

    teleguy, those chainstays are massive. I'm looking forward to the ride report.

    Yes, clincher to clincher. The Vitts are great tires tho. I even liked them better than Veloflex masters. But the GB's really are that good. Now, I've got a few hundred miles on them and can't speak to their durability but no flats yet (knock on wood!).

    The build of my steel SB Max has begun. The saddle and bar height are set. I'm really happy with how things worked out. It nails the traditional look I wanted in this bike (horizontal top tube, not much seat post showing, not much stem spacer etc.)

    Build so far. More to come next week as the drivetrain is assembled.

    Hand built wheels: 32-hole HED Belgian Plus rims on DT Swiss hubs. Challenge Strade Bianche 700 x 30 clincher tires.
    Fizik Aliante saddle
    Erickson straight Ti seatpost
    Chris King headset (black)
    TTT stem and bar

    v1 of the ti GP build; saddle and bar height set; may need to tweak angles on both. Pardon the tape job as I'll likely have to tune the brake lever position.

    Classic Hampsten aesthetics:

    DSC_0089.JPG
    DSC_0091.JPG

    Thanks to @kokies for the die cut vinyls to ghost the Enve fork logo:
    DSC_0092.JPG

    Love the pig:
    DSC_0094.JPG

    lots of clearance with Enve, Campy SR and Challenge Strada 25 tubulars on Nemesis (oh, wait, that's another thread...) :
    DSC_0095.JPG

    Lionel helped with the translation; I asked him for the phrase "climbs like Andy...":
    DSC_0096.JPG

    I asked Steve to set the rear brake bridge for Campy calipers with the pads at the bottom of the slots. Tons of room with Ultremo 28s on TB-14 rims:
    DSC_0098.JPG

    And even with fat chainstays still some room on the sides with the 28s (whoops -- sorry, Paul, I used "28s" twice...):
    DSC_0100.JPG

    Can't wait to get it on the road; only 25F with wind here; may just do an around the block (or two) spin for now.

    Nice build, Jeff!

    I find myself without a titanium bike just now, not sure how much longer I can hold out...

    +1 for pairing the Belgian tricolor with a Flemish lion and confusing the hell out of the flag wavers...
