    Hi Steve, a few years, miles and some rough edges now. The Radavist shot it over the weekend. Still so sublime.

    Wow, that has matured in a very nice way!
    There's a lot to be said for getting the build right the first time and then not changing anything apart from perishables.
    Imagine your Hampsten in about 50 years time ... It will be like a Rene Herse now.
    Gorgeous 10 out of 10.

    I know what you mean!
    I've looked at pictures of old bikes I've had before upgrades and changes and often think "why didn't I just leave it as it was?"
    But I' m a sucker for changing bits / colours / combos too

    Why do people feel the need to list all of their bikes in their signature?

    It's a bond...I haven't felt the need to change a thing, riding it now makes me just as happy as it did on day 1.

    It took me a while to get my MAX dialed in. I tried various component, wheel, and tire combos.
    I recently changed to a set of deeper handlebars and scored a new set of Camapagnolo Shamal Ultras, the bike has just come alive.

    Nice job, that bike is beautiful.

    Terrible iPhone 3 pic, but I'm having a blast on the Great White Hampsten lately.

    This is a peek at our latest: full carbon custom Maglia ROSA by Peter Graham. I'll have better pictures in a week or so but you get the idea. And it rides great: stiff, not overly harsh, light enough, and - while I can't discern extra front-end stiffness - that tapered Enve fork sure looks nice and inspires confidence. Paint color is called Voodoo Blue and paint and finishing was by Curt Goodrich. Tubing and rears are from Enve; dropouts, chainstay, BB shell, and fabrication techniques from Nick Crumpton.

    One more post before the weekend and Max's wedding blowout - this is our Columbus HSS-based Superissmo frame in new Plum Crazy. And my dog, Charles, wearing Donald Trump's hair because, you know, the weekend.

    Steve, I've now owned 4 Hampstens (including the 2 I have now), but whenever you post something new I always start thinking about another one. The Maglia Rosa frames look great!

    Only some finetuning left, so will hopefully be able to take her out on the maiden voyage this weekend.

    Wow, 4 of 'em?! Lucky you. But thinking about another one is certainly something I can understand. Just not sure how to explain to my wife how a Gran Paradiso Ti would ride differently from some of the other bikes I would sell to help pay for it (Look 585, Serotta Fierte IT, Merckx Ti AX,...). I love my Strada Bianca Ti.
