    Eriksen 96er Almost Here!

    Okay the note at the top of the page said "start with your first post today" so here goes.

    Went to Steamboat Springs last October and put a deposit down on a 96er made by Kent Eriksen. Met Kent, Katie, and the shop guys, all great folks. Kent is a very nice man who is an artist in Ti as applied to bicycles. Never thought I'd pay that much for a bike or wait that long. Bike is Ti with Maverick rear end and Maverick DUC fork. XTR all around except for XT brakes. Can't remember the name of wheels, but supposed to be Bontrager's newest 29er (front anyway) set up tubeless. Being a geezer (52 last December) I was looking for a bike that rolls easily, fairly light, and handles the rocky trails around Phoenix. T100 is my home trail.

    I'll post photos when it finally arrives. Hope it was worth the wait.

    PS-rode T100 yesterday with a friend from Colorado; it is beautiful from all the recent rains
