Kent Eriksen road frame & ENVE fork, 53.8cm ETT
Asking $2995 OBO

Key measurements:
Effective top tube: 53.85cm
Head tube length: 15.40cm
Seat tube length (center of BB to top of seat tube: 50cm
Chainstay length: 40.8cm

Built by Brad Bingham the last year before Kent turned over his
business to Brad. Brad is widely considered one of the best Ti welders
in the bike business. He really does beautiful work.

This frame is set up for eTap only at this point. There are brazed stops
for the rear brake, but nothing else. I emailed Brad and it would cost
$450 if you want to switch it to Shimano electric or add stops for mechanical
components. Any switching would include a refinish - which is totally
unnecessary if you keep it eTap. IMO, eTap is absolutely the best modern
equipment out there. Really fantastic performing stuff.

Design note: The chainstays are oversize and light gauge. I talked to
Brad when we designed the bike and because I liked to stand while
climbing, he recommended those stays.

The ENVE fork has a 45mm offset and I ran 25mm of spacers
below the stem and had another 10mm above the stem, so there is
a lot of steering tube length if you need to adjust your position.

The bike is virtually flawless and indistinguishable from new.

Please look at my pictures carefully and study the geometry. The last two pictures show the bike as I rode it, and the last is a .pdf of the geometry. I was 67 years old when I ordered the bike.
It has a relatively short top tube, a relatively tall head tube, and a
short seat tube - all appropriate for an old guy who was
then (and still is!) stiff without a lot of back flexibility.

I do know that I am asking a lot for this bike
But if the geometry is right for you, I can't imagine anyone
not loving this bike, and feeling that they got a great value.
It's like buying a new bike.

When built, it will look new and will last a lifetime!
