    Well, Darren is a tough act to follow.
    But... it's been quiet here in Hampstenville.
    Finally got the MAX all sorted out so I thought I would share.
    The GC seatpost is working out nicely and a Chorus 10s gruppo was installed by a competent mechanic.
    I know it's not in the Hampsten SOP but I pulled the Reynolds Aero wheels out of the closet and bam!!
    Looking good.

    Topped off with some nice, grippy Veloflex 25s.
    Stiff and plush, the wheels complement this frame very nicely and the ride is incredible.
    Still deciding if I should trim that little bit of steerer tube off.

    Anyway... Happy Thursday!!!!

    looks legit! leave the steerer tube, it's not much at all, and this is a lifetime bike.

    That photo doesn't even do the bike justice. It's just killer in real life. It helps that Artie's a hell of a guy too.

    Is it a scratch, or some residue of some kind? If it's residue, I'd use acetone.

    If it is a scratch you might be able to make it less obvious with a black Sharpie.

    Forget that. Use them at GTR/RBX Deux and let's put a scratch in the other one.

    Leave the steerer tube, because if itsn't a lifetime bike, it'll definitely fit me and I like my bars about 57cm above the front hub.

    At first glance it looks like a rub of some kind but it has no hand so to speak so I'm thinking a scratch.
    good advice.. thanks!!

    55 mi/5000 ft. Mounted fenders because rain was promised. Not a drop, obviously!

    Ever had a bike where when you weren't riding it, you daydreamed about riding it, and whenever you rode it, you daydreamed about riding it farther?

    Looks better with fenders than without. Which is to say: Good God that's beautiful.
    GO!

    Hello- new happy Hampsten GP Ti owner here!

    Was lucky to see a thread in the Paceline forum a couple weeks ago titled "Hampsten in Road Magazine". Additional luck to see a post by Steve, that the size 53 frame featured in the magazine was available for purchase in the Yard Sale blog on the Hampsten site.

    I quickly contacted Steve and with his helpful consult, confirmed that the frame would be a good fit and impetuously decided to purchase it.

    To help me get through the ~ 10 days of waiting for the frame to arrive, found the link to this site, registered and enjoyed seeing pics all the great looking Hampsten bike pics and positive comments of Steve's work. This was really helpful with affirmation
    that I made the right choice with getting the frame.

    The frame arrived today and couldnt be happier- grazie mille Steve!

    After the out of the box photo shoot, put on the cycling DVDs, opened up a cold one and got to wrenching ~ 4:00 and finished up around 9:00 pm.

    Too dark for photos, so had to wait until this AM to shoot pics of all clean and pretty before its maiden voyage.

    Was able to get ~45 miles on it today to dial in fit. Moved my seat forward a few mm while waiting for someone in our group to do a flat fix- otherwise fits is as if it were made custom for me :)

    As far as ride, no need to repeat all the goodness written about it in the ROAD Magazine article. Its all true and just feeling stoked and fortunate to have one of Steve's bikes :D

    First, a big congrats again on getting such a wonderful frame in such a wonderful manner. Steve is the man!

    This may sound like heresy, but I really prefer the look of the Chorus white graphics to the SR red/white graphics on my cranks and brake calipers. It just really works with the ti and th white classic Hampsten graphics you've chosen. Well done!

    Oh, and the pic with Andy in maglia rosa behind is priceless. Great sphoto.
