My Hampsten has an absolutely gorgeous Delfin Grey paint job. BMW paint.

But I did find the paint to chip easily. Still looking sharp but the under carriage is
pretty rough. Maybe I have Steve do a Slurpee scheme on it someday.
Black with white decals. Simple and basic - no frills.

Ride Report

I have had the opportunity to really push this bike.
It ticks all the boxes, crazy acceleration and razor sharp handling in tight, fast corners.
The 53-42 chainring setup is working out really well.
Sprinting up short, steep bridges.. (Florida mountains) is a blast.
It looks killer too.. I'm having a lot of fun on this thing. Giddyup!

Looks great. I like the look of the seatstay/seat tube junction. Is it a longer seat tube or are the stays lower? What's the rest of the frame's geometry?

Re:

Hey.

We lowered the seat stay junction right to the bottom of the butting of the seat tube. I wanted fast back stays and Mike Z. made it happen.
It might be the only one he's done like this.. but I'm not 100 percent sure.
If you go to the first page of this thread, the CAD drawing is there with all the numbers. Thanks.

Aaahhh, there it is. For some reason, your attachments weren't showing up on my device, and now they are. Funny, same geometry as my bikes, even saddle height.

Cool!

I see you are a Floridian.
Maybe we get to ride some time.
Be safe this weekend, this storm is no joke.

It really is the perfect balance of modern and old school touches (saddle and bar shape). Every choice feels like exactly the right one. Really well done.
