..I haven't posted on SF in a few years. During that time period, the bespoke bug that bit me here infected another of my passions, cycling. In honor of the Tour's conclusion today, I'm sharing shots of my and my wife's custom bikes, made by a few of the world's best. If you have any of your own, feel free to add.

Designer: Steve Hampsten (brother of American Giro d'Italia-winner, Andy Hampsten)
Frame: Strada Bianca, titanium, custom geometry
Paint: raw, matte bead blasted by Kent Eriksen
Intended use: gravel roads, nasty pavement, rainy days, recovery rides



Designer/builder: Dario Pegoretti (famous maker of a few of Miguel Indurain's Tour-winning bikes)
Frame: Responsorium, TIG-welded stainless steel, custom geometry
Paint: one-of-a-kind creation by Dario
Intended use: long rides, mountains



Designer: Sacha White
Frame: Speedvagen Road, TIG-welded steel, made-to-measure geometry
Paint: Surprise Me Gold, unique on a road frame, by COAT
Intended use: fast group rides, flats, races



Designer: Richard Sachs
Frame: Road, lugged steel
Paint: TBD
Wait list: 7 years, 2.5 of which have passed. I'll share this one in approximately 2016.

My wife’s bike
Designer/builder: Dave Kirk
Frame: Terraplane, fillet-brazed steel, custom geometry
Paint: unique design by me and Joe Bell

Holy Moly, Monti???? The only old school poster missing now is voxsartoria.
Beautiful bikes by the way.

+1 AWESOME bikes - this may also get long lost member Phat Guido to post one.

Is it wrong that this excites me, even though I know nothing about bicycles? I tried to talk bespoke cameras and camera bags before, but nobody cared.

Not at all. I also know nothing about bicycles, but, for some reason, photograph them every time I see an interesting model(s) on the street.

New poster here. Saw this thread and immediately took an interest to it. Those ENVE rims are absolutely stunning. Are the hubs DT Swiss, by chance?

Yes, on both the Speedvagen (custom painted to match the frame) and the Hampsten (standard build).
