Some really nice looking bikes lately in here. I'm of the "horizontal top tubes rule" thinking myself... to me they just look so much better.

What I don't get (never have) are those "kinked" Thompson seat posts. Most unelegant things ever. Looks like they start life as a zero set back post, then to get the proper setback it gets stuck in a vice and bent.

I see absolutely no problem with the Thomson setback (I ride a 25mm setback 3T post) but I think we can all agree that it shouldn't be done backwards, on a cross bike with aerobars.

I agree, ugly things, but Thomson has seen the light at last.

I'm slowing upgrading my old Litespeed in preparation for this summer's riding. Just installed a DA 7800 grouppo. I'm thinking of keeping the 7400 cranks because they are decently light (especially with the American Classic ti spindle bb I have). The wheels are next, and I'm planning to do some light hubs to Kinlin XR-300s. It isn't as high budget as some of the beauties on here, but it'll get the job done.

]New Hampsten ti Gran Paradiso. Replaced my 2011 version as my position changed and the bike was a little more flexible than I decided I really wanted (I had asked Steve to make it more comfortable than stiff). This one has fatter DT and TT, plus a larger HT while no going the full 44mm route. Larger BB shell for PF30 and FAT 1" chainstays! (Note: bars have been retaped after I tweaked my position -- with no offending brake lever clamps exposed:))

Absolutely love the ride (still incredible comfortable) but no movement in the front end when climbing standing, and when I push on the pedals on the flats the power goes right to the drivetrain and the bike just goes. Did I say how much I love this bike?!?!?!

Gotta love the pig!
Image

Certainly not a grimpeur at 90kg...
Image

Plenty of clearance w/25mm tubulars
Image

Amazing welds, PF30BB, fat chainstays

And I like the clearance.

Where did you find the snow?

Friday Ti Day! @teleguy57 I love that frame.

Have you given any thought to a setback post, just to center the rails a bit?

Thanks for all the compliments! To your comments:

Wisconsin USA. These were taken two weeks ago, but we still have some snow on the ground and there are still snowbanks several feet high along the roadsides and bigger mounds where it has been plowed/piled. Finally got above freezing this week; my last four rides before yesterday was a high of 31F with lots of wind.

Just put the calipers on them: indeed 25.4mm! Here are a few more photos:

I'm still tweaking my saddle position; this seatpost actually has about 15mm setback when you look at the lower cradle. I may go to a 20mm setback post, but that will be a bit further out.

Unfortunately, no Campagnolo in a 30.9 -- this one with black hardware. Steve Hampsten would finish it to match the frame :beerchug:
