Hampsten Team Pro UOS

Gotta have at least 1 steel lugged bike in the stable and it's hard to imagine it can be any better than a Hampsten. The frameset was built with Sach's UOS Pego-Richie tubeset ... frame and fork.

Working with Steve has been a pleasure and at several stages of the design process Steve patiently shared his knowledge and experience. Eventually, I decided to get out of Steve's way and let him design the frameset ... Hampsten style!

It's a long story but I was lucky enough to have Eric Winter build the fork.

IMHO ... both Steve & Eric are top notch guys

More pics coming after the frame comes from the painter.

Even raw, I heart this. Having five (!) lugged steel bikes may make me biased. And that fork, no words. What's the plan with paint?

That's a pretty fancy seatpost binder--not sure I've seen the good folks at HampCo towers do that before (of corse Martin has the chops, it's just more ornate than normal). Looks great!

That's pretty much our standard stay arrangement for lugged frames here at HampCo Heavy Industries, LLC. Tim Isaac did the same on his original custom frames back in the early '70s, then (as a customer pointed out recently) Tim used a similar arrangement when he designed castings at Trek in the late-70s/early 80s, then we used it at match for the Tim Isaac-designed Schwinn Paramounts we built, and finally Martin has been doing this on most, but not all, of our lugged frames since 1999.

I like the the sense of history, craftsmanship, and continuity all wrapped up in one not-so-simple technique.

That is an elegant, timeless seatpost binder design. Perfectly in keeping with the classiness of the whole frame. Looking forward to seeing it complete. Enjoy!

Yikes! I stand corrected. Thanks for the background, Steve!

As Climb says, it is very elegant.
