If I had the space for one more bike I would have considered buying it.. beautiful bike and seemed like a good deal as well. Never rode a Kirk, but the time will come ^^

Enjoy!

I was down to one road bike since the majority of the spring and summer were spent on dirt and trails, so there is an extra hook just in case something like this pops up! I would not have went for it had it not been an hour drive and a perfect fit.

This will be a fine sunny day Autumn road bike to cruise the Mohawk Valley foothills and Adirondack lakes on. It will help me keep some semblance of fitness going into the winter months!

That's a great looking Kirk, and it also looks like that was a killer deal! I just picked up Ryun's white and blue Kirk which is slightly longer in the TT than this, and am excited to build it up after hearing all of the glowing reviews on the forum the past several years.

Looks fantastic, Adam! What was the last one you had? I recall the red cx-ish one and stainless one that was mostly painted (that bike was stunning).

I strongly considered that one, but this one was local and a bit better suited for me! You are likely going to love it!

The last one was the White lugged stainless JKS Special. I miss that one! This one isn't stainless, but very similar size. The red/orange one was a filled brazed MRB and my first was a Fillet brazed custom for somebody else.
