This bike is not new any longer, nor does it belong to me, but the only way it was ever going to get posted here was if I did it. It belongs to a friend who seldom does much but lurk on the SS board, and she's enjoying it to its fullest. I just think it's damn purdy. Come check out a few more at 24 Hrs/Moab - our race team, save for myself (broke student), will be aboard these wonderful toys.

Does homie have a website?

I remember seeing his "personal" frame on Spectrum's website. GORgeous.

Love the downtube and seat stays.

Erik is in CO Springs - local enough for me. He does have a website, but last I saw it, it wasn't very good, but I'm sure a search would upend it.

Happy riders for happy bikes.

I like the sliders he uses. Are they a new Paul d.o.? I ask cause the stop looks just like his. Its also a great lookin' bike, and the rider ain't so bad either. ;) I like the action shot.

Nice work. That's a swanky orange/blue paint combo. Dig it.
Great fillet brazed joints. Man those look so smooth like carbon fiber mold. Makes mass manufactured tig welded stuff look like sloppy toothpaste ooze.

Took a looksee off the site/

I like this chainstay stay:


Dig this dual downtube hardtail design too:

Ooohhh.. the new hotess!

I'm loving those dropouts. The integrated dropout/disc mount is fantastic. Who's design is that? The fillets are amazing as well!

The rider in question has about seven different engineering degrees, one of which is mechanical, and she has lots of machine shop experience and access to a good one....so, they're hers. They appear on at least two bikes that I know of, the other a very similar steed belonging to a friend, but with a different color scheme and a Talas on the front.

Speaking of which, she just got a 2005 Talas to replace the Duke, which I only recently managed to massage all the kinks out of. :p If anyone has any suggestions for setting up a Talas for a 105 lb rider, please make yourself heard!

I'm sure I'll get some well deserved flak for this, but...no. At least, I hope I'm not entirely useless....

If he can get me some specific info on his frame materials, options, etc., I can add him to the SS FAQ. You can e-mail the info to me at [email protected]removemefirst.yahoo.com.

Thanks,
Craig

I can't believe that it's not carbon fibre, even Klein's ultra-smooth welds cannot compare...

Void free welding from Klein

this bike does not belong to me it belongs to scott taylor (salvagetti bicycle works). he asked me to post it. its a custom fillet brazed steel ground up designs ss 29. the shop he owns is a ground up dealer and this bike was built up as a demo. eric is a buddy of mine and I have some pictures of his other bikes I will post later on.

the ss disk dropouts eric uses are not pauls they are ones he designed himself. he used to use pauls on some of his earlier bikes but he now uses his own. his webiste has not been updated in years and does not do his work justice.here are some semi recent bikes he has done. the first bike belongs to a messenger in denver named justin. the camo bike is one of eric's race bikes.
