Riding Discipline – Road
Atlas Shrugged This is a tribute to Ayn Rand’s book Atlas Shrugged. The bike was beautiful before it was painted. We pulled the layups farther down the chain stays to stiffen the ride, and incorporated all the special touches that make a KirkLee unique. The paint is understated but not simple. Eight hours went into the head tube alone. From an artistic interpretation this is probably the hardest one we have done this year. The beams of light on shaped tubes proved challenging and how can you have a man crouched without touching the earth to convey the intended message. If you look close you will see the thought that tied the artwork together.
