    I got my new Eriksen road bike this week and took it out today on the maiden voyage. Nice and stiff for acceleration and climbing out of the saddle, but still comfortable over the rough stuff. It has Campy Super Record 11 throughout and I put on some Shamals today. This was a show bike that Kent was selling but it fits me perfectly. Total weight for 55cm ti bike without pedals - 15.0 lbs.



    Since this was a show bike, Kent put some nice finishing touches by polishing part of the chainstays and seat stays and little bands of polish and beaded finish.

    Was it 15.0 with the Shamals? Or the Enve wheels?

    That's a fine looking bike. I think more pics are definitely in order. The latest flurry of Eriksen photos has been nice. I had never really seen one in the "flesh" until meeting boots2000 and his in Marin a few weeks back. Great looking bike.

    "7900 junk" caught me by surprise. I have experienced near flawless performance from 7700, 7800, and 7900, and my hope is that 9000 is as good (haven't tried it yet). The only way 7900 should seem like junk is if it not adjusted properly. The marketing machine always will find something new for us to buy, and make us believe newer is better. Similarly, I would put Campagnolo Record/SR above Dura Ace

    Love the Eriksen pics... hope to post my own pic soon.

    Let me clarify my comment. Since I switched to 9000 on my other bike the front derailleur is quite a bit better, of course it's not noticeable until you have both how much better the 9000 is.

    I meant of course that I wouldn't necessarily put Record/SR above Dura Ace.

    Past a certain point that lies below Record and Dura Ace, all you are really getting by spending more $$$ is shaving some grams. I'm a gram shaver myself, so I get it.

    Recently treated my two Eriksen (circa 2008) to Ultegra 11 and new Shimano PRO cockpit... Will probably upgrade my wheels as well. May just live with what I have until a new machine with discs!

    Howdy! I had them made within a couple of months of each other in 2007/2008... They were originally built up with Campy Record 10. Last month I finally updated to Ultegra 11. They have been a great investment. My next roadish bike purchase will likely be ti with discs so as not to "need" two bikes to cover a multitude of terrain-types....

    I might be fairly anti-disc, but this 2015 NAHBS show bike that Kent Eriksen is selling... Ooooh.

    Thank god I find those decals on the wheels hideous. And that I too am fairly anti-disc. And that a 56cm is just a tad too small. And...

    A new road frame from Kent Ericksen. He built my hampsten travel bike last year and I loved the way it handled. So I contacted him earlier this year and it was awesome working with him. A couple of phone calls to sort out the tweaks to the fit and decide on diameter. If anything, he was too open with the process and I was more than comfortable letting him just fill in the blanks.
    A little bigger DT and TT that the other bike, more drop and more reach but kept the beefy chain stays, threaded bottom bracket and standard headtube.

    Rides fantastic and feels stout for ti. The weld quality is outstanding as expected but has to be seen to be believed.
    Di2 routing is clean and the mods he made to the post to take the battery was so clean; Ill have to get a photo of it later.

    Pics are with a fork of another bike so needs to be cut down once I figure out what I want to do with the di2 junction

    Spec:
    Enve 1.0 fork painted black
    Da 9070 di2
    Ericksen ti post
    SLR TT ti railed saddle
    Shimano Pro Vibe LT carbon stem and bar
    Fizik Tacky superlight tape
    Jag wire cables
    King Ti cages
    Speedplay X with ward spindles
    Chris king sour apple hubs, headset and bottom bracket

    Approaching two years since the last post on this thread, so...

    I now have this incoming - a customer order that was defaulted on and happens to be perfect geometry for me:



    I guess that's me officially a road disc convert, then.
