Stainless Steel Hampsten: XCr

Some of you know that we build some fine frame sets for Hampsten Cycles. For those of you that didn't.... now you do. We build their TIG welded steel bikes. The bike featured here is a stainless steel road bike built using the Columbus XCr tubeset.
The frame includes an EDGE 2.0 all carbon fork, painted to match.
There is just something so luscious about a red paint job.
The clear coat is so smooth that the frame looks wet.

The exposed stainless banding around the seat tube panel looks awesome... expect to see more of this.
We are boxing it up and shipping it out to Steve Hampsten to complete the build for some lucky rider. This is going to one hot bike when it's completed.

I think it is great you are making bikes for one of the greatest racers of all time.
Beautiful frame. Lucky rider to have that piece of art work.

That is a sweet frame. Which model is it, the Classic? Didn't know XCr tubing was an option...John

That unperforated stainless steel bike frame looks awesome! The steel finish seems fit for a race, and I have to say, such fantastic choice of color. It shows that this bike will take no prisoners and will surely leave the competitors behind.

Like what people says, when it's red, it's made to perform fast, coupled with the professional workmanship of stainless steel. Extrusions of that caliber and design leads to performance that is beyond doubt unmatchable.
