    Default Kent Eriksen

    Here is my stealthy Eriksen with S&S couplers and etched logos. Kent is a great guy to work with -- the bike fits me perfectly and it rides like a dream. Kent designed the frame so it can accommodate 28mm tires.

    The wheelset is from Troy Watson (Ligero Wheelworks) and while they look like carbon, they're actually ceramic-coated Kinlin clinchers laced to Alchemy ELF and ORC hubs.

    chapeau !


    always liked Eriksen's frames and you've built this up real pretty...minor criticism... the extension above the stem.

    Default Thats gorgoeus!

    Love it. Congrats.

    Interesting about the kinlin ceramics. You are right, they do look like carbon. Dident even know they were available with ceramics, will be a nice alt to mavics.

    Thanks for all the compliments!

    Shaner, that is a Moots stem with the decals removed.

    Atypically for me, I actually think the extension above the stem looks really sexy on this bike. Probably because it's a Ti stem with Ti (colored) spacers; there's a certain "industrial" quality that just presses all the right buttons in my aesthetic sense.

    Good looking bike. I wish we saw more Eriksens around.

    Beautiful bike. I'm looking for a new frame. Looks like I'm about your size. Please could you share the geometry? Cheers, TTBS.

    I love the red accents. They are not over bearing and are peppered around the exterior of the frame just perfectly.

    TTBS: here are some key measurements...

    Seat tube: 53.5cm c-c, 73cm c-t (74 degrees)
    Top tube: 54.5cm effective (5.2 degrees)
    Head tube: 14.6cm (73.2 degrees)
    Chainstays: 41cm

    This is my first bike with a custom geometry. I also have a couple of Pegorettis (see Dario Pegoretti) which are both stock 53cm and fit me well.

    SpeedyChix has one in the mountain bike thread. Maybe we can convince her to show more photos? We need more Eriksens over here.
