    head badge

    I have ordered a Kent Eriksen frame recently. I thought Kent had changed the head tube badge to a screw on type but it looks like a decal on your frame. Am I seeing things?

    #241 here. Had it built as a single speed with sliders, but had some extra hose guides tacked on the seatstay to run a continous cable housing for a 1x9, (have yet to do). It has a 2" down tube that makes it stiffer than Ron Jeremy so it'll mash up technical hills like a race horse behind a glue truck. Couldn't have chosen a better builder.

    Hey Hardtail29er, glad to see you got your frame. The decals look really good. I was teetering on the black myself.

    Hello! First off, VERY gorgeous frames you got there guys! I don't think anyone has nicer welds than a KE frame. I'm currently contemplating on joining the Kent club but I just want to ask first how tough is the finish on his frame? I heard a satin finish on a titanium frame is a scratch magnet. How true is this? If you do scratch it is it easy to buff out yourself? I really hope to hear from you guys! I'm having fitted later this afternoon in a local Kent Eriksen dealer here and I just can't stop dreaming about getting my hands on a KE frame soon. Thanks guys!

    nothing to worry about. the satin finish is plenty robust and once you got it used up have it refurbished. if i remember correctly, kent will charge you $150 or so and it looks new again. mine is 3 years old and no reason to have it refurbished yet.

    kent is a great guy and i am sure you will love your bike.

    Thanks cook! I stay overseas that's why having it refurbished every now and then won't be pretty easy. I'm glad that it's not as scratch prone as what I've heard. I plan to keep my KE frame forever and maybe pass it on to my kids. His frames are simply works of art in motion!

    Thanks haggis. That's my concern too since I live on the other side of the globe (PI). Just had my measurements taken for my frame! Just waiting for the CAD drawing. I sure can't wait to get my hands on my own KE frame!

    Cocheese, bituman, and 251 are the decals on your frames the color Pewter option? I like it but I'm also interested in the "Spray Mask" option but I want to know first how it exactly looks like and what are the advantages over an ordinary decal. Does anyone have this on their bike? I hope someone can post a close up shot. Thanks guys.

    Okay before anyone comments on it. I realize that the brake lines are way too long on the green one. I literally built it up today and wanted to get out and get pictures before the sun went down.

    Hello guys! I might get my hands on my very own KE frame by the end of this month! I'm currently getting the parts I need for it. I'm going to build it up as a weight weenie wonder machine. Forgive the ignorance but what kind of headset would I need for it? A a-head set or can I use a semi-integrated one? Thanks guys!

    Did you specify with Kent about what you wanted to use? He will pretty much build your frame around any parts you want to use. Personally, and I think I speak for 90% of Eriksen owners, I think nothing pairs better with an Eriksen than a Chris King headset. They look nice and are smoooooove. I'm sure there is something lighter for you weight weenies. But that gets my voice. And if you're really nice, you can probably buy it with the frame and have it pressed in right away. That's what I did so I wouldn't need to take it to a shop for anything during my build up

    Thanks 3fast3furious! I didn't really tell him what headset to use. So I'm assuming he'll use the regular aheadset type for it. I guess I'll go for that. I was just kinda hoping I could use a semi-integrated one so it would be lighter. You've got one very sweet bike there!

    However, Kent just got the what he needs to do the tooling for a tapered headtube. So personally, if you don't have a fork yet, i would say go for it and get an integrated headset with a tapered fork. That would be some sick shlt! And post pics! And Chris king makes an inset if you are heart set on the brand, but cane creek also makes an excellent integrated headset.

    I would have told him that info too mtnbikecrazy55, but I figured it was a bit too late. He said he would be getting it by the end of the month. You and I both know that his frame is too far along to change the headtube at this point. He might have his frame in the same batch as yours DAWG. You guys will have to compare serial numbers when you get your frames.

    Probably still is, I doubt he's put it in the jig yet. Once it's in the jig it's damn near done.

    False. He does them in batches. So he jigs it up to get the tubes butted right. then they get welded, like 5 at a time. Then they get the braize ons. Then they have to get bead blasted. Then they have to get Decals and stuff. You got a lot of steps left

    Todd.. Stop talking. When greg and i were at his shop, he put one in the jig, and while doing so, said "now it's quick from here on out"

    My frame will be enjoying the tapered headtube. Wondering if it is normal to have dreams of my frame at night....This is a sick and twisted process, 8 weeks feels like an eternity. And I probably won't even really ride the thing until mid-May.
