    72, i can give you cause for all kinds of remorse...

    Vax, on Darren's bike we should have had the flexibility to use a 40mm fender which works with a 28mm tire. i goofed and specced the wrong chainstays so we can only really run a 35mm fender - which is what he wanted all along, but it's nice when we have a tad more room. that crown takes a 40mm fender but no more.

    our strada bianca takes the same idea and simply gives us more room, less chance for snugness, 43mm fender will work as along as we use a bontrager (carbon) or steel fork, different crown.

    i'll do a fork/brake/tire/fender compatibility chart for my blog someday, promise. soon's i have the time.

    I ordered a Max tubed Classic in January that will hopefully be ready in the next month or so. The pictures of that white Classic are really making me antsy. I can hardly wait.

    The straight fork on DarrenCT's bike is simply awesome.
    It's a great contemporary look.

    I choose to believe that Steve H doesn't goof. I'm sure it was intentional and he just doesn't realize it yet.

    Ride it in good health!

    Do you need an assistant tennis coach? I could use one, two, three, ten new bikes.

    I have the same crown on my DeSalvo, pictured in the gallery. You can indeed fit a 40mm Honjo in there, but you have to "cold-set" the 'guard a little where it goes between the tangs of the crown. It won't fit in its off-the-shelf, pristine state. I can also confirm that, with this mod', the 40mm Honjos work with a 28mm tyre (measured).

    Default Blue Tournesol - Mt Hamilton

    Rode the blue bike up and over Mt Hamilton yesterday.
    The bike is a great descender.
    The Paul Racer brakes modulate better than any I've experienced.
    Thanks to Hampco & DBRK for their expertise.

    the blue bike above was a fun build, good customer
    Steve, if you like a deep drop/classic bend combination there should still be some deep Deda 215's available. Depending on width, there's a distributor with some old Cinelli stock that was found recently--66's?

    Default Hampsten Classic 953

    My second frameset from Hampco. Steve designed this one with his Classic geometry - tighter than the fat-tired Strada Bianca but more relaxed than his Gran Paradiso.

    57mm reach brakes, up to 28mm without fenders, 25mm with fenders. One of my perversions is an ultra low BB, so Steve accomodated me here with an 80mm BB drop. So it wasn't overly stable, he shortened the trail slightly. 42cm chainstays. With a 1cm headset spacer under the stem, the bar height will be located between my pure race bike and the Strada Bianca.

    Build is primarily final generation 10sp Chorus with some Record - compact with 11-25t cogs. Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL, PRO Hushovd bar & stem, FSA K-Force carbon post, Fizik Aliante saddle, Crank Bros. Quattro 4Ti pedals.
