    Looks like a Seven touring fork, the same as I have on my Eriksen-built Strada Bianca.

    That's right. It's the Seven 5E long reach fork (Seven Cycles | Accessories | Components | Forks). Been great so far. I can't say it's exactly what I had in mind aesthetically, but it's the best I found for my purposes. Plenty of clearance and good quality.

    Kent's creations are things of beauty. Hoping to be able to afford one once I'm done growing (perceptibly, in college).

    Please talk to me about the FS Eriksen. I gather you are pleased. How does it work relative to other FS bikes you've been on?

    Default Kitted out for the season - SB concept Eriksen

    I'm kicking this thread back to the top with my Eriksen S&S all-weather friend. This is my go-to bike mostly, as it does everything perfectly...frame and suitcase was a CL snag from about a year ago. It's got wonderful road manners...screams down the twisties and is certainly stout enough for my weak legs. It'll easily take 34 knobbies, has fender mounts and will pack into a suitcase. I put the fenders on over the weekend...Di2 will be coming off shortly, replaced by something a little more pedestrian. Much as Di2 is probably perfect for lousy weather, I just can't quite bring myself to thrash it around in the rain.

    I reduced my small stable or bikes down to one...then saw this on CL. Of course, now it's the bike I ride the most. I think of it like a Swiss Army Knife. It's not "pretty" but its beauty is more in the utility and function.

    It'll end up with a mix of SRAM stuff or a used 7900 group I have in boxes. Wheels are 32/3x Kings on Open Pro Ceramics with CXrays..Thomson stem/post, Romin saddle, 3T Rotondo carbon bar, Paul brakes and Honjo 35's.

    Here is my Eriksen. I travelled from New Zealand to Steamboat Springs, CO to collect her and I love everything about this bike P1000150.jpgP1000152.jpgP1000153.jpgP1000160.jpg

    I was taking this to NAHBS 2013 tomorrow, but the snowstorm had other ideas. Thanks, Kent, Katie and the crew at Eriksen Cycles and everyone at Spectrum Powderworks for making this dream a reality. Everything about it is sublime.

    Picked up this frame earlier in the year--it is used but new to me. I'm not sure the owner used it much because looked almost brand new when I got it. Sent to Kent to have the head tube shortened and the previous owners name taken off. Not big on having a name on a frame.

    Finally had a chance to take it out and still working through the details. Most of the parts are from what I had laying around, but is all quality components--mostly Campy. Wasn't sure about the fork because Kent recommended a 43 rake and the one I had was 45, but doesn't seem to be a problem.

    Really enjoyed the first couple of rides. Much different than my Peg Marcelo, in a good way. I'll post more (and better) photos once I've determined the final configuration.

    Really, really like the sweetpost--I think its the prettiest and most functional seatpost on the market.

    Nice one Anne. I just got a new road frame from Kent- hope to have it built with pics in next couple days.

    Asking me? If so, it's the same bike. Fenders come off and Eroicas go on. I'll run the fenders again in the winter. I've taken a few trips with it this year...the S&S couplers work brilliantly. In the first photo I was running a Wound Up fork that I snagged off the Bay...but lately I've been using the Steelman fork that came with the frame when I bought it off CL. It was originally periwinkle blue, which I hate almost as much has hard boiled eggs (a lot)...but a quick $40 trip to the local powder coater saved it. The steel fork is heavier than the Wound Up, but man the bike tracks well with it on there and Brent set it up for the original owner with fender eyelets and internal routing for a dyno light setup. I was also originally running Paul Racers, which look cool but IMHO never worked as well as the old Shimano long-reach calipers. I can get 32 cross tires through there with plenty of room to spare (maybe even 34s), so no reason not to use the calipers. The Eroicas are a recent experiment...they feel nice but of course they also feel big on the road. When I've flown with it I've just packed it with 25 Conti 4000's. The dropped top tube and massive HT extension used to bug me, but it does make it a lot easier to pack in the box - 30 min on each end unless something goes amiss. The last trip I took, the star-nut in the fork somehow vibrated halfway down the steerer in the fork on the plane. How, I have no idea. Anyway, it took me an extra hour to sort it out at my destination....eventually located/used a toilet plunger handle to push it out the bottom and then re-set it using the threaded post from my front brake. Voila.

    Definitely a jack of all trades kinda bike...it does the trick and gets used a lot!

    But ya, was hallucinating and wondering if you actually had some kind of crazy ti fork on there. I need something like that. fenders, tire clearance, even the couplers, though I'm afraid of the $1000 upcharge. (irrationally as that's about 4 round trip bike fees with american airlines)
    Now I want an eriksen and a steelman.

    Thanks. Looking forward to seeing what you've cooked up on this one.

    I still have it. It is actually a fendered bike for road use. I could put big tires on it but that is not my thing.

    Default Small CX bike

    I picked up the frame and seatpost in the classifieds.

    First test ride. Not as stiff as my aluminum Kona but it sure likes to going around corners a lot more and a lot more natural feeling ride. The front end is very nimble at low speeds and also when climbing and trying to keep traction on the rear. I had a blast picking my way around obstacles on steep grassy hills.

    Thanks SpeedyChix for trusting me with this.

    I'm still tuning the brakes so I have not trimmed the cables yet.

    I can't believe the previous post on here was mine.
