@barsook77: Yes, please report back with how you like it. Plus, when you got your Eriksen I'm assuming you had a lot of riding experience under your belt and knew pretty much exactly what you wanted, versus someone that doesn't really understand the first thing about frame geometry etc. and goes to a custom builder, because he can.[/quote]
Hey Calnago. Just took possession two days ago and gave it the once over. All I can say is that I'm really impressed with this ride!
For anyone interested, the rest of the pix are up on the twoHubs.com website. Feb.26,2014
I wanted a Mapei sloping, set up for mechanical without the extra holes for electronic. I had to wait a few months, but it was worth it. I need not to go on about the company, except to confirm they really know how to dial it in for an overall grand tour machine.
My previous Ti bikes were a VaMoots and a Compact. Then I went directly to Kent when Moots started using Reynolds tubing and cutting some corners. Kent took about a month with me over the phone talking about the way I ride and previous bikes I owned and liked. And that's a lot of bikes! Rather than suggest anything other than sloping geo with oversized Sandvik and Haynes titanium, I let him do as he pleased on the angles. I needed lateral stiffness, a smooth rider on chip seal and STABLE on 60 mph descents. It was a great bike with mind blowing workmanship, welds and finish. Kent is a great person to work with and anyone wanting something sublime in Ti should look him up in Steamboat Springs, Co.
That being said ... the C59 is a different animal yet with many of the same qualities I desire. @14 lbs 7 oz. pictured, we'll see how the T1000 holds up under mondo gearing loads! This will be fun ... as the bike is fast.
BTW ... I thought your attention to detail on the matte carbon bike you own was outstanding and probably one the most tastefully done builds I have seen to date. Nice job.
