    I made some changes to my Eriksen recently. More importantly, I washed it. Here's number 254:

    Complete Satisfaction.

    Kent built me a custom roadframe earlier this year, something a little bit different that could accommodate fenders full time and a dyno hub lighting system yet still be light and fast. Going back and forth with him and Katie was fun and very enlightening! His design, the welds, the quality, the RIDE...all marvelous.

    If you're at all like me, custom projects involve a fair bit of breath-holding and anxiety...but when they turn out like this it's so worthwhile!

    I recommend Kent Eriksen without hesitation.

    PS- KE's delivery time was nothing short of amazing either, it was 8 or 9 weeks from our first conversation to holding the finished frame. He 100% met his delivery target date.

    Along with the Potts threads, this my favorite on mtbr.

    All beautiful bikes posted in the last 11 pages here. Works of art in a way...

    Kent had a really stellar booth at the 2013 North American Handmade Bicycle Show. Check out all of the photos and information on his latest titanium full suspension frame and a few other bikes he had on display.

    Here is My Eriksen 650B.

    I can not figure it out, I use to be able to post photos, not anymore.

    Looks like the photo problem is fixed.

    Ever since the forums went down awhile back, a large percentage of the pics from past threads disappeared. There was a notice at the top of the home page saying they were working on bringing back the lost pictures. The notice went away and the pics never came back. Drag.

    I'd love to see more of this bike. Appears to work like the MX Divide by Moots. Drool.....Wonder how it rides compared to a Cinco?

    I love the look of the Bingham frame. All Ti. No aluminum Ventana swing arm like on the Moots. I always wondered why to pay so much for a "ti" bike when half of it is aluminum. I'm looking for the very best f/s ti frame and I think I seriously just found it. Expensive, yes. But arent they all? Eriksen seems to have that home brew hand made feel. Guess thats what he wanted to achieve by leaving Moots? I love it.

    Can someone tell me the different between the curved top tube vs the normal straight top tube that Kent makes? Is its a different ride quality or just the look?

    This is the curved one i am referencing:

    I think it's just for esthetics. But call and talk to Kent he will give you the design benefits.

    Beautiful. I'd love to see full build pictures along with ride report if you're still out there. Thanks.

    Regarding the curved tube. I asked about that myself. The fellow that answered the phone, Kyle (?) said it was a special request/one-off. He said they normally don't build or recommend the curved tube.

    At first I hated that swoopy look, but in the last year the Moots Rogue & the YBB 29er kinda grew on me. Still can't hang with their brace/triangle/strut thing on the smaller stock size YBBs.

    Thanks for the info on the curved tube, thats interesting that it was a one off and not recommended. Maybe because it takes alot more time to get that curve correct which would cost more money and throw off production times? I love that look and im also not a huge fan of the super angled top tube like most bikes have now but hey if its the norm what can you do?

    PS - is that huge slope in the top tube for better riding position to crank uphill? I never understood why the new bikes make them like that.

    Does anyone have any feedback about or experience with the Eriksen Brad Bingham design full suspension frame? Appreciate any insights. Cannot find any reviews or ride reports.

    Thanks for any information.

    Would it be possible to provide any ride experience/report on your Bingham design frame. I am considering possibly ordering one and cannot seem to find any reviews.

    Would appreciate very much
