I need to take some updated pictures (along with some close ups) of my compact CSi since it is now has a new fork, stem, saddle, pedals, tires and bar tape. But I do like this fillet brazed machine

Kirk #15

Here's a shot I just took of Johny with his Kirk at the Ramble. The brazed fillets and fork lug, together with the paint and straight seatstays held my eye for so long I asked if he would pose with it. I meant to take some closeups but got distracted, but here it is on DK's site: http://www.kirkframeworks.com/photogallery2.htm .

As an aside, I really enjoyed John's company at the Ramble despite the fact that he is a fellow academic scientist (cycling clearly trumps everything personality-wise). He also has a great family --his wife and 3 unnaturally cute little boys accompanied him on Saturday.

Thanks Lew. I enjoyed failng to get anything specific done on Friday with BBDave and you. The whole Ramble weekend is just wonderful...way beyond words, again big thanks to dbrk and everyone.

You're my hero for still going strong in life and work. I look forward to riding with you and having even more fun in near future!

Keith, beautiful Serotta. And that Kirk is most certainly drool worthy.

Moser Leader AX

A bike I couldn't resist on eBay, freshly repainted by Airglow and a model I always thought was kinda cool. Supposedly silver fillet brazed, whatever that means. Interesting fork, appears to be some kind of filleted unicrown...

This observation means that I probably don't deserve to own a fillet brazed frame - ever.

Speaking of fillets -

first person to identify what part of the frame this is gets a prize of little value.

I was gonna say the same thing, but figured, no, that's WAAAAAY too obvious. It must be something else. But couldn't figure out what. I gotta stop overthinking...
