Hi, just wanted to introduce myself and my bikes. I wouldn't call any of these bikes weight-weenie, but I think they're cool. Hopefully you'll find them cool too. Someday I hope to get a true weight-weenie bike, but until then I'm pretty happy riding these!

First up is an Eriksen with S&S couplers and etched logos. The build list includes Campy Record, Edge 2.0 fork, Eriksen sweetpost and Moots stem, and a custom ceramic-coated 27mm Kinlin clincher wheelset with Alchemy ELF and ORC hubs from Troy Watson (Ligero Wheelworks). The bike weighs 17lbs (7.7kg) which isn't bad for a travel bike with couplers.

Next up is a Pegoretti Duende, built with Campy Chorus, Reynolds fork, Thomson seatpost, Deda stem and bars, PMP headset, and a Campy Neutron Ultra wheelset. Weight? 18lbs (8.1kg), obviously non-WW.

Last up is a Pegoretti Luigino. It has a Pegoretti steel crown fork, Campy Centaur, Brooks swallow titanium saddle, Nitto stem and bars, and a custom white DT Swiss wheelset with all decals removed. This thing is a porker and weighs 21lbs (9.5kg)!!! But it gets the most positive comments of any of my bikes. And I don't seem to be any slower on this bike than the other two.

Uber classy build. Is the coating on the rim resistant of braking wear? Where can I apply such coating?

What beautiful bikes. Love the Eriksen with the colour-matched bars/stem and seatpost, and the Pegoretti Luigino, has she got a sister? What a stunner :wink:

All three are beauties. The forks on the Luigino and colour are stunners. The eriksen also appeals.

Holly cow that is something speciel. Thanks for sharing them with us. You are a very lucky man.

What are the wide bands on the toptube and downtube on the Ericsson. And how do those Troy Watson wheels ride, I'm looking at them myself? Is the braking on ceramic just as good as on ordinary aluminium?
