Serotta ~ Hors Categorie

Here is my 1999 Hors Categorie. Serial number CHC 60 078 with Harlequin paint. She still has most of the originally spec'ed components including DA 7700 and Mavic Helium wheelset.

Her sister, a David Kirk Onesto, should arrive in about a month.

Love the harlequin paint the hors is a serotta that I've never owned as I believe I am just too heavy, but I have always been intrigued by them. Congrats on getting an onesto. Dave makes a great bike!

It's the original Serotta paint job -- just as I ordered it in 1999. Depending on the light and the angle it can be green, purple or a little blue. It's very dynamic.

I would describe the ride as sublime. They say it is really about improving the downhill handling, which it does, but it seems to be more than that to me.

Yes, living on Maui does provide some awesome views and a couple of challenging hills. Haleakala is 10,000' not that I'm likely to try it anytime soon. But like all islands, there is a limit to how far you can go before you get wet.

If it weren't for the Hors, I may never have thought of getting a Kirk. A while back I started researching the DKS and found about more about Dave in the process. That led me to Kirk Frameworks where I first saw the evolution of his thinking on the rear suspension. After several years on the DKS, I knew the Terraplane was the right thing for me. It didn't hurt that there are so many folks here that have shared their positive experience with both Dave and his bikes. Keep an eye on the forum as I will definitely be posting a couple pics once it's in my hands!

maul pal, nice rig and congrats on your new Kirk. I wouldn't say I regret selling it but my former Hors is definitely one of those bikes I wouldn't mind keeping it around.

I love those panels.

Here you go. When you look down the at the fork in the second picture, you can see it looks a little golden-brown. Also in the second picture, you'll notice a faint blue between the purple and green on the top tube just above the Hors Categorie lettering. It's pretty cool even if it screams "I was born in the 90's!"

Last night I was out in the shed with an LED headlamp. When I looked over at the bike, I noticed it looked almost completely green in the LED light. These are crappy photos taken with an ancient iPad but you can see how much the paint changes in different lighting.
