Extremely nice. This is what my Mr Pink wants to be when it grows up.

lol. Sorry its the only picture I got (I had my film camera and took a couple of pictures, got it developed and most are out of focus, this one is a bit too, I am a newb), more to come eventually. Tig'd.

You are officially a tease. We need more pics and more detail (I am a HampCo fanboy). That fork looks better than I'd thought it would, maybe matching paint someday?

I'm striving toward the same goal, fewer bikes that cover all the bases with little overlap. Still have quite a ways to go, unfortunately.

definitely would love to have the fork match the paint. I actually really like the look of a carbon fork on some bikes, raceish bikes which this one is not. More pics soon, I promise.

Dig it. Steve Hampsten is the bomb. I love all Hampco's and someday would like to add a sweet "road" MR in addition to my Strada Bianca.

Also digging the fork, can we get closer and better pics please? My SB has the old Seven mid reach fork and I like yours better.

yes to better pics. Steve is awesome indeed. Although this is not custom to me, I messaged Steve and he was awesome. Hampsten is on my top 5 for a future custom bike

Haven't spent a lot of time on the in this section, but it looks like you finally started sharing this with the world. Still glad to see you are enjoying it after the last two bikes that didn't pan out as desired!

I'm not the OP but I can say that I don't feel that I really give up anything with my Strada Bianca....it can truly do it all. If I had to own one bike there's no doubt that it would be the one I would keep.

I mean, so far it feels great as a road bike. Don't have many miles on it yet but it feels good. The 32mm tires are nice in the city thats for sure, I would probably go to a 28mm if I was going to only use it as a road bike. Maybe I am just really loving my corsa g+ tires, they feel nicer and faster than the gravel kings (which is to be expected)
