CycloCross – KirkLee

KirkLee Bicycles

KirkLee Cross This is KirkLee’s new cross frame, designed with input from 4x Swiss National Cross Champion Christian Heule. As all KirkLee bikes the material is carbon fiber. In this frame we wanted a cross bike that rides extremely well and minimizes front brake chatter, which is why this frame has a cable hanger mounted on the fork. From input we have learned what makes a good cross frame great, like we molded an adjustable rear brake cable hanger out of carbon and Ti that is part of the frame. While we have a Di2 version, this frame has 9 of KirkLee’s handmade cable stops which mount on multiple diameter tubes. The finish on this frame is a tribute to the BMW race cars of the mid 90′s. We color matched the factory team colors and applied them in a waving checkered flag whose final checkers are falling down the frame. Not many of these frames exist and it is one of the most labor intensive KirkLee’s to date.
