Hampsten Strada Bianca

Finally finished this guy.

Hampsten Strada Bianca with a Whisky Road Plus fork. Mix of campy Super Record, Record and Athena. 32T Cassette. Hunt Wheels. 32mm Gravel Kings. Gran Crus Mid Reach Brakes.

Like it a lot so far, very versatile and lighter than I would have expected (18lbs).

Stunning. I'll be very interested to hear how you settle in to the ride on it - pros/cons vs. a "standard" road bike, etc. Great job picking the exact components you wanted for it - everything works and looks just right. Chapeau!

Great bike, I love my SB. Curious to know which brakes you use and what kind of clearance they allow.

Thanks @clean39T! So far I am enjoying it. A bit different than my english. I bought it to fill the gap btw that and my big tire bike, I am going to use it for some commuting but also some long rides and park laps and I think it will be great at all that.


@sjbraun - the brakes are vo gran cru. They are super nice. Nice buildand look great. Apparently the stiffest mid reach brakes out and I can agree that they are stifder than long reach tektros, also better build. They can clear a 35mm tire I am sure. Bike has a 32 on it now with plenty of space left

Nice. Aside from the carbon fork it looks twin to my Crema-same colorway and non-cursive style decal font.

It originally had a wound up fork. You have the steel fork?

Not really into white bikes but the pearl white is very pretty. That said, it gets dirty really quick. White cars get dirty the least but aeema like white bikes get dirty the most, a few rides and the bike is filthy

Yes, steel fork. I like pearls and other off-whites.

Thanks everyone


@Luwabra - So far, very good. I rode the wound up for about 30 minutes, probably have 2 hours on this guy. Its not worst so thats a good thing. Its also much lighter. Really liking it so far.

Sweet bike! A comfortable setup like that in a lightweight package is all any of us needs. I certainly don't need another bike, but that doesn't keep me from daydreaming about building one around that fork.

I am glad they released that fork to everyone, instead of just keeping it on the All City Mr Pink.

And it also fits a switchback hill
