KirkLee started with a love for cycling and the idea that they could build anything. With years of carbon research and an eye for detail, the first carbon bikes were born. The prototypes were finished in raw carbon to ease visual inspection of the material. As their faith and trust in the material grew, they subjected the bikes to higher and higher loads. Stairs, jumps, ledges, curbs, racing, gallons of sweat, and hours of sunlight were all thrown at the raw carbon frames.
After several years of all the abuse they could throw at them, they quit worrying. KirkLee frames #001 and #002 are still 100% intact and ridable. These days they spend their time reminiscing their glory years in the rafters above the shop floor. They are the bikes that started this company.
Frames: Road, cross and mountain.
