Strength:

Dude, it is just STRONG. Welds are beyond perfect. Having a custom frame built for me is like wearing a tailored suit, it just fits perfectly. The ride is smooth and compliant. The geometry works out well. Why don't all bike makers take these things into consideration? Oh yeah, because it takes time and time is money. Kent has a hands on, one on one approach that can't be beat

Weakness:

Waiting is the hardest part. The end product has no weaknesses though.

Stop messing around. If you want the right bike for you, stop looking for it. It doesn't yet exist. But don't worry. Kent will build that perfect bike for you. Yes the price is a lot. But really, for the craftsmanship its a good value. And this is a bike that will last you a lifetime. Average that per year and it is a really great deal.

Beautiful hand crafted work of art. Everything is perfect.

Weakness:

A little slow on tight turns in loose gravel.

At 60 years of age, I need all the mechanical advantage I can get. This bike delivers and is beautiful to look at as well. Kent and Katie were wonderful to work with, very patient and helpful. The 29 inch wheels combined with the ti frame gives a very forgiving ride. Eriksen delivered the bike to me complete and ready to ride.

Strength:

Weld quality, tube diameter options, A+ quality build, many years of expertise, not all that common, respected as among thee best builders, simply awesome.

Weakness:

None

If you know what you want [frame geo, material, FS/HT/SS/geared] and Ti is your desire - you are considering a great builder. I have no regrets.

This bike handles like a dream. Helps me keep up with the young guys. It's fast, responsive, stable, and easy on the body. Awesome attention to detail. Dealing with Kent and his enthusiasm is a pleasure. It gives you an insight as to what cycing is all about...It's not cheap, but it's worth every penny.

Weakness:

The bike doesn't like the garage, so I have to keep it in the house.

This is a great bike. I have had many great bikes, however this one is the cream of the crop. It does it all. I have a blast every time I get out to ride. If you are ever in Steamboat Springs, do yourself a favor...even if you're not looking to buy a new ride....Stop in and chat with Kent and Katie...and take one out for a spin......you won't regret it....

Strength:

Kent make a beautiful bike. Most of my time on this bike has been in ultra-events - 4 this year. This bike has been flawless and comfortable. My cycling skills are mostly limited to road racing and this bike allows me to feel like I've racing dirt every weekend.

Weakness:

Didn't buy an Eriksen earier....

This is a great bike - Kent was great to work with in getting the bike sized and spec'd. Wish there was more 100 milers to take this to locally. See you at the Shenandoah 100!

Similar Products Used: Previous bike was a Trek 9.8 - Carbon 26" Hardtail. Another nice ride.
