Custom geometry disc brake cyclocross bike. Created by slightly out boarding a set of road seat stays and using our 1st generation MTB chain stays. The bottom bracket is 68mm and it uses a 135mm rear hub. The drop outs are one piece 7005 Al with angles cut for this specific bike. Shimano Ultegra Di2 rounds out the build along with White Industries center-loc hubs and Evnve disc rake wheels. The paint evovled from a combination of mixing high visibility with hand drawn pinstripes and colors taken from a picture of a ceterpillar. Enjoy!
So what do you do when a six time national cyclocross champion asks for a KirkLee? You use his expertise to design a cyclocross bike that is ready for the World Cup. Features such as a PF30 BB, internal Di2 wiring, stand alone rear brake adjuster and the front brake cable hanger mounted to the fork make this bike ride as nice as it photographs. It was a pleasure to build this bike. Over the years Christian has become a great friend of KirkLee.
This is KirkLee’s new cyclocross frame; designed with input from 6x Swiss National Cross Champion Christian Heule. In this frame we wanted a cyclocross bike that rides extremely well and minimizes front brake chatter, which is why this frame has a cable hanger mounted on the fork. From input we have learned what makes a good cyclocross frame great. We molded an adjustable rear brake cable hanger out of carbon and Ti that is part of the frame. While we have a Di2 version, this frame has 9 of KirkLee’s handmade cable stops which mount on multiple diameter tubes.
