    Absolutely beautiful bike. Congratulations.

    Slightly OT, but how do you like the Specialized Captain on the rear?

    Holy sh*t that's a nice ride. My 26er Dean may be out the door for an Eriksen SS.
    Why would I need more than one gear?

    Super sweet bike!

    I like the custom anodised parts!

    But why a steeper seatangle combined with a offset seatpost?

    Have fun with it!

    Yep. My next MTB is a custom Ericksen 29er. No doubt about it. I'm a blue whore as well so it will look very similar but SS specific. My Dean has a blue rear triangle, blue cranks and blue headset. Gorgeous bike but it can't hold a candle to the Ericksen....even when muddy. Now STOP with the pics already. I can't take it anymore! The CC is getting real hot. ; )

    Still the best looking bike I've seen posted....congrats again.

    Thanks,
    The blue theme just happened and I didn't realized the coordination of my shop stickers & maverick colours until it was rolling.

    November ride report

    I changed out the Sworks Capitan for a proven Resolution in the back; duh, big red truck. The rear now hooks in the ways the Capitan couldn't, BUT I can tell it does not roll as fast. Eh, I'm not that light to care.

    Installed a Specialized Phenom Gel saddle for the Rival, same 143 size. If you like the Rival and want a firmer saddle without the inconsistent foam squishing, try the Phenom. Flat, contoured, very supportive, easy on, off the back and climbing with a softer nose-though it looks funny. I used to run Avocet O2 40r and 40 mens saddles for decades, but that company is involved in a Coriolis.

    The SC32 is breakin' in and gettin' that known Maverick smooth & buttery feel. Stiff, precise, on the rivet steering. Mike, I cry on the inside for you.

    XO shifting is bomb proof, XTR front is fast! I had to re-adjust the chain line on the Race Face cranks from 49mm, as when it chain sucked, it bent 2 links. to 52mm chain line so now when it drops, it wind past the chainstay and doesn't get jambed.

    I can tiptoe through the lady slippers, they Are endangered, or be super arrgo and this bike HAULS ARSE. Weirdly enough, that harder I am with steering inputs, this bike readily accepts and the payment is a huge grin & giggling.

    Hey folks,

    Noticed the conversation about the Eriksen Frame and that mtbr.com didn't have any Eriksen products to be reviewed.

    So here they are....

    http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/xc_full_...t_131299.shtml

    http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/29er/product_131302.shtml
    http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/29er/product_131303.shtml


    Two still need picts, but that should be fixed soon. If anybody has a pict of an Eriksen 29er full suspension or a 96er hardtail can you pm me.

    Thanks,

    Great looking bike! I am considering ordering one up and building it up in a simular fashion. What headtube angle did you go with to match up with that fork? are you happy with the SC23 on this frame? how does the frame ride compared to other ti frames you have been on in the past? this would be my first custom frame any tips to make sure I do everything right. Thanks!
