Sheesh that is a looker. Cant wait to hear your review! I'm always kicking myself for not buying the one Brendan Quirk posted here a few years back.

Looks great!

So, I may have missed it, but is there any surface treatment, clear coat?

My initial thinking was you probably got this faster than a painted Kirk because you skipped Joe Bell's lead time, but maybe it went to his shop anyway to get clear shot?

Excited to see how you build 'er up!

Hi Angry,

No surface treatment or clear coat, just clean it occasionally with Barkeepers Friend. Dave adds a coat of anticorrosion like Framesaver internally but that's it.

Build will be Sram AXS with Grand Cru midreach brakes.
Still working on the little bits and wheels. Frame is built to optimize 28-30mm tires but will clear a 32.

Good good choices … a 28 is a great size for everyday road, a 32 is a great size for mixed road.

Commensurate IMO sorta. In that 220 lb rider on a 61CM machine the 32mm IMO for everyday road. And some tires so good these days too. I used to max out at 27s until recent years as the tire got so good.
