    Hey Mr. Hampco, nice bike. How big o tires can you cram in there? Very elegant understated paint. Chapeau to you on that one.

    28mm of hot... riding, I guess, is the max on these Enve forks.

    Oh, this is cool. A bicycle when bicycles were bicycles. Have fun sourcing, building and riding.

    Looks like Avia cycling shoes?? I don't remember those.

    I do recall that donning a pair of Oakleys would cause one's jersey to unzip on its own.

    I liked the Avias and I just had to be different...

    It's been a while, no? I've been busy, skirt in chain, etc. but time to post some pretty pictures. First up in my new rig, Il Barone, and it feels like the best thing ever and I'll have photos on the website soon.

    Whiskyís current road disk fork, what they call the No. 9 Rd fork, offers massive tire clearance in a road fork. They advertise that the max tire clearance is 32mm. Thatís crazy wide for a road length fork (fork length = 367mm)! Iím not sure, but with a 650b tire in there, certainly you could go even wider. Who knows? Maybe 650b x 42mm? It does have a not-so common 1 1/4Ē tapered steerer though.

    Some other fork data:

    1.25" tapered steerers are pretty common on gravel forks - see Enve, Columbus, etc.

    Enve Road Disc fork (1.25" steerer) will take a 32mm tire easily

    Ditto Falz V2 rim brake fork

    And I have a new frame coming - if my painter will ever finish it - that uses a Ritchey Road Disc fork, takes a 32mm tire, AND has a straight 1.125" steerer. Pictures soon, will let y'all know how well it works and rides, etc. The chain stays I'm using these days allow for a 32mm tire easily without any futzing, so that's nice.

    Yes please. Would love to hear more about the new bike w/ Ritchey fork when your painter is done with it. It’s so nice that a lot more carbon road forks are available nowadays with really wide tire clearance.

    I'm a little embarrassed to say that i stumbled upon the lower case in our Hampsten font recently. I probably knew it was there, then forgot, but once I saw I figured it would look great on the new frame. Paul Barnes, our designer, tweaked the ascenders and descender to be more tube-friendly and it shows. Thanks, Paul!
