Custom Kent Eriksen all-road bike, currently 19 lbs but has the potential to be made lighter :D

Is Kent Eriksen the one who did the welding? Or just the design of the frame? Welds look amazing I must say. Very nice bike indeed!

Bar tape looks very nice too, what brand/type is it?

Kent had input on the design of the frame, but it was welded by Brad Bingham, who has taken over the business from Kent. Brad was Moots's welder for 15 years (where he worked for Kent) and he is known for his amazing welds. The bar type is Supacaz, it's thick and grippy and comes in a lot of wild colors.

@adirik beautiful bike and construction. I went out and looked at my welds and it isnt close to the workmanship on your KE (pic three).

Here is my XC bike, nothing like the models here but it has served me well for 4 yrs. Im on my third build, but I've never been inclined to get a new frame. I wont replace it, but I am in the process of waiting for a new Moots Psychlo frame. I cant wait to start a build thread for it, and then post it here.

Actually, the Superpavé isn't mine anymore - shipped the frame to its new owner yesterday...

But here are some older pics. The next Heretic (name tbd, working title Superpavé MK II) will be steel!

Was searching for a titanium bike for a longer period already. Found a Van Nicholas Boreas complete bike for the price of the frameset.

Will be used for more comfy rides, so the lightweigt racebike can be dedicated purely for competition. I will still try this bike in a race someday :wink:

Was planning to change the 105 group for something else, but I kinda like the deep black look in combination with the silver, so will ride it this way for some time. Am thinking about a tita seatpost, brown saddle (Selle Italia SLR Nubuk), handlebar tape and brown (not gumwall) sidewall tyres (Conti GP Classic). Good idea?

Only thing changed yet are the wheels: DT Swiss R460 rims I laced with silver spokes on silver rims some time ago. Looks nice I think.

Still a little heavy at 8,9kg. Weight is not so important for this bike, but I would love to get it to 8kg. So I have a reason for some remaining upgrades :D

Still working on the fit.

I've used this thread for inspiration and guidance for this work in progress. After the theft of both my bikes in one night a few years ago I went online in a hurry to find a commuter and came away with this early 1990s titanium framed 'Geoff Wiles'. I have still to swap out the seat post, stem, bars and fork. I have loved the process of taking the wreck I originally bought and turning it back into a beautiful bike, in my opinion. It is also a real pleasure to ride.

Changed handlebar tape, saddle, tyres, seatpost, self-built wheels and stem. Brown theme obviously, down to 8,35kg at the moment :)

To do: Some Chinese Titanium bottle cage holders on their way and thinking about debadging the stem. The seatpost is not Titanium but Scandium (KCNC Ti Pro Lite 8000 which I am happy with on the crit bike), but it appeared to be a little more shiny then the frame.. :? looks worse in the picture even, but ok to ride.

Also bought myself a Merino wool Molteni shirt for fun and went for a 100k rainy test ride in the Flemmish Ardennes. Nice ride! Not a big fan of Continental tyres before, but the Continental Grand Prix classics came out fine.

@Kristof047, I love the brown theme and especially the Selle Italia SLR Nubuk saddle! I've got a similar theme, see the pictures of my Eriksen gravel bike a few posts earlier. What bar tape do you have on there? When I tried the matching Selle Italia smootape, I found that it turned black pretty quickly and wouldn't be very durable, so I replaced it with Supacaz tape (in "coffee" color) but while I like the tape the color doesn't quite match the saddle anymore.
