This customer wanted something sedate. An anti-cycling team bike. Team Backlash if it existed. While the bike was to be understated, we still wanted small amounts of color to contrast the carbon. The geometry of the bike is the result of a fit session from Bike Effect in Santa Monica, CA. To reduce toe overlap we adjusted the geometry to work with a 50mm offset fork and a Zero Stack series head tube. All in all a very fun bike to build.
How do you build the perfect road bike for a triathlete? Contact KirkLee of course. The build started with a custom fit from Tad Hughes to help us dial in a geometry great for riding all day long. We did our regular magic and built a frame with our in-house molded tubes and custom layups. A SRAM Red group with Quarq power meter complete the build. Nordy Design’s paint job came out wonderfully. Subtlety was the key. Light purple accents of henna and butterflies adorn the purple bike and really shine in the sun. This bike might be a wall hanger, but rest assured it’s a bike that can take on many miles.
