There was a discussion about three weeks ago. jschrotz really liked his Cinghiale.

Ah hell, here's his post, "I bought a Hampsten back in May, and I absolutely love it. I got the steel Cinghiale made from True Temper's OX Platinum tubing. It's a fantastic riding bike. It's light, stiff and comfortable. It climbs great and is plenty agile. It remains comfortable even after several hours in the saddle. I built it up with Campy Chorus and a set of Mavic Open Pros. The AME fork that they include is great too. It's a bit stiff, but still quite comfortable and tracks extremely well through the corners, and inspires tons of confidence on high speed descents. The guys at Hampsten are great to work with. They're really personable and did a great job with my bike. I couldn't be any happier with it."

A glowing review.
