    That is super cool. What holds the two toothed tube sections together?

    For someone who considers Direct Mount as the Final Frontier in rim brakes it’d be great to see close-up photos and tech. specs for this classic, should you be so inclined…

    5 mm flat-head bolt on the respective undersides of the tubes. No special tool required, and the upcharge is same as that for S&S. I think only downside might be a up to 75 g mass penalty for the two couplers.

    Just adding to the Database of Knowledge: if the frame and fork cooperate, a Chorus caliper will clear a 32mm tire, most Shimano and SRAM calipers may, possibly not Red, and definitely NOT Record or Super Record.

    Anything in particular? I think we use the numbers from Paul Comp. but we may bump the mounts up 2-3mm to give a little more clearance. Canti studs work well and we remove anything that isn’t needed, we also like to replace the pads and holders with Shimano or similar.

    chorus brake specs are not the same as record or super record?

    Not with 12s. The Record and Super Record are the same with a flatter lower clearance arch, but Chorus is very similar to if not the same as the 11s caliper design.

    but

    are the pads in the same plane when at their lowest point in the caliper slots?

    I think distance pivot-to-pad is the same but shape of the caliper arch is different. But I will have to check my bikes to be sure.

    Aha I see now. I wasn’t paying attention looking at a smallish photo and thought that fine bicycle might have conjured something near 35s under Campagnolo Direct Mount calipers. If they’re Paul Racers that explains everything and perhaps leaves room for 38s even. I’ll see myself out…

    Yep, 38s look like they should fit. The Chorus calipers are made by TRP/Tektro, I believe, interestingly enough...

    Busy week here at HampCo:

    Levico in Mini Cooper Kite Blue with Record (and Chorus calipers, see above)

    This Anno20/Mondrian thing seems to be catching on:

    Are the two Anno20 framesets both steel? Also, are the boar logos on the headtubes painted?

    The dimensions of the rim-brake frame with couplers appear to be comparable to mine. I wonder if the owner lives anywhere close enough that we can trade bikes for a quick ride and compare notes.

    Yep, all logos on the steel bikes are painted but we still use the Andy decal. The owner is in Buffalo, NY, so maybe a bit of a stretch.

    I’ll be making a pilgrimage soon to Santa Monica for tacos, sun, and a few miles - in roughly that order. For various reasons the steel lugged bike with Paul Racer Ms and S&S couplers got the nod. Can't wait!

    Press thingy:

    Do the kids still say “collab”? Be that as it may, it gives us great pleasure to announce that Eyewater Bicycles will be providing Hampsten Cycles with their latest version of fully-custom carbon fiber disc brake frames in road (Tranquillo) or gravel (Sterrato) configurations.

    Eyewater Bicycles is framebuilder Corey Lowe, ably assisted by industry stalwarts Zac Daab and Damian Handisides, crafting beautiful custom bicycles from a small workshop in the heart of Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood. Prior to starting Eyewater, Corey spent many years perfecting his fabrication and design skills working for Specialized, Parlee, Cannondale, and Allied Cycle Works.

    Each Eyewater-built frame features molded, shaped main tubes and rears, carefully bonded with fully-visible joinery. These frames are offered in an unpainted waxed finish and all graphics are done in-house in durable Cerakote with customer’s choice of color.

    Every frame will be designed by Steve Hampsten and is warranted for life. These are priced at $5800 for frame with Enve fork and King headset; other fork and headset options are available. The turnaround time is expected to be about four months.

    Well, unless it was thru-axle, direct mount rim brake, then maybe...
