Best Cyclocross/Gravel Bike
Winner: Kent Eriksen Cycles
One of the most recognized builders in the history of NAHBS, Kent Eriksen has now won an impressive 10 awards since 2009. And it's easy to see why: Eriksen's been working with titanium since 1991, making him one of the best and most experienced Ti frame builders in the industry. This bike belongs to Eriksen's head welder, Brad Bingham, who uses it primarily for gravel grinding and dirt roads. The welds are some of the finest you'll see on a titanium frameset, and modern touches like flat-mount disk brake calipers and a 12mm rear thru axle mean the frame is ready to take advantage of newer brake and wheel systems.
