New Hampsten! Columbus MAX Sterrato

Hey Guys! Reached out to Steve a few months ago for a rim brake all-rounder, was very interested in trying one of his Max bikes as well. As we went through the process I ended up going for a similar bike but with all the modern standards, figured I might as well try the latest and greatest. Just got a picture of the frame painted and couldn't be happier! Should be seeing the build come together over the next week or two.

Build includes lots of gold white industries bits, ultegra hydro discs and easton subcompact cranks. Should be nice and zippy but with enough cushion for our local fire roads.

More pics to come! Will also take the time to shamelessly promote the guys over at Hampsten, has been a very nice experience.

Oh goodness! What a lovely tubeset and amazing frame set!

Did he use the funky bb shell? It hard to tell.

Too cool!

That looks great - Hampstens always look ‘right’. I’ve cruised on one but never gotten to take one for a rip, sadly

Wow super cool. Look forward to seeing it built up. I think I'm going to be very jealous.

This one needs to be built ASAP!

I have a good friend that has a Hampsten road bike. It's amazing. I am not one to ride road bikes but every time I visit Oakland I want to take it out on a spin.
