Beautiful detail as always, Dave! I really enjoy your close-up shots, nothing to hide there.

amazing stuff. I am inclined to buy a carbon bike next (some day) but your work always reminds me to have a reality check, Dave.

This JKS X should be arriving at its new home today. It was built for one of the gentlemen at Rapha and the paint scheme was designed by the Rapha art department. It looks so cool out in the sun.

Love the frame. Love the paint.

Bike should build up super nice with carbon or alloy group as well.

Did the Rapha artist work formerly in a barber shop?

I'm also curious about the carbon fork. I've never seen a Kirk with a carbon fork. I didn't think any Dave Kirk frame was allowed to leave his garage with a carbon fork!

The owner of this frame has an association with Enve and wanted to fly their flag......and we were able to get the proper rake to match the frame for good trail numbers which paved the way.

Here's a fillet brazed all-road gravel bike with Terraplane seat stays, canti brakes and internal brake routing. It should arrive at its forever home in a day or two.
