I have been testing the Eriksen Sweetpost on and off for almost a year now, and it has one of the most innovative clamp adjustment systems I have ever used. It is not only simple, but it makes adjusts and saddles swapping a 10-30 second ordeal. In addition, it is made of the most wonderful material for bicycles, titanium. Ahh, the exquisite silky smooth titanium, drool!
I visited Kent Eriksen’s funky shop last summer, and had a nice long conversation with him about everything under the sun, mostly a titanium sun of course. When Kent gets going, he likes to talk, and his enthusiasm is contagious. Kent’s knowledge and expertise with titanium are unfathomable, and I learned a lot in our brief time together. His wife, and hard core mountain bike racer Katie Lindquist wandered in during my shop tour, and she helped set up the review of the Sweetpost, thanks Katie.
He walked me through his small but well appointed shop, and showed me a very tricked out tandem bike with couplers that he was working on. The bottom tube was huge, and the tube was squished at the bottom brackets ends, very trick indeed. Everything that his shop works on is impeccability welded, bar none.
Here is where the Sweetposts are assembled. They had a wide array of colors for the clamps, and some stock sizes, and quite a few custom sizes ready to go out to customers.
