My Bikes

My original Kirk Revolution from 1992
I bought a brand new Kirk Revolution in March 1992 and it was a great bike to ride and own, there was nothing else like it at the time. Whilst at university I started to modify it and then once I'd graduated and had some money I decided to respray it and upgrade most of the components. It never suffered from frame flex, although the drive side dropout did work loose twice. In 2004 I sold this bike and my Kirk Precision to Frank Kirk (the designer of the Kirk bike range).

Custom Kirk Precision (used at the Milan trade show in 1988)
Through this website I've been contacted by quite a few people, all wanting to add to the Kirk history, but also to ask advice or sell their Kirk bikes. I recently picked up this unique Kirk Precision, complete with 80s fluorescent pink spray job, after someone sent me an email. They had 2 Precisions and I don't normally buy, but couldn't resist the mad colour of the pink one. Anyway, hope you enjoy the pics and the weight is 10.9kgs.

Kirk Precision MTB (not a Kirk Revolution)
Another person contacted me and generously offered this rare Kirk Precision MTB (in return for the cost of postage). There are very few of these around.

Kirk Revolution DX
This frame belonged to the CAD company responsible for some of the design work and it had never been built up. I've taken all of the components from my other Kirk rebuild and put them onto this frame. Some of the decals I've made have fallen off the Amp Research forks, but I'll get some new ones made soon.

Kirk Revolution Rebuild
I picked up an original Kirk Revolution in April 2006 (almost identical to the one I used to own) and below are the before and after pics. The frame had a number of common Kirk problems (loose BB and rear dropouts) and I'll add some build comments soon (probably in the FAQs section).
