    you got the builder right, the wheels right, the pedals right, and the component groupset right but i am afraid that the top tube will be shorter than i like. i wont complain though, i look forward to riding it come spring.

    *wakes up from dream*

    very pretty. in case i missed it, what are you doing for a seatpost, stem, and bars?

    Stem bars post will likely be ritchey and/or 3T.

    Hours, not a clue, but start to finish for Dave is about one week, one frame at a time, so there is a rough number for you.

    WOW! I'm envious - i've often day dreamed about getting a Kirk built. However money doesn't allow this at the moment so i'll be watching your build and applauding from my chair here in the UK.
    Are you going for a threadless fork?

    Thanks for sharing the process. Keep us posted!

    Off to do something other than just think about bikes, I'm actually going to get to ride one for more than 10mi for the first time in a few weeks. Darned weather and such has been getting in my way lately but the temps are starting to warm up and the sun is out. Time to ride.

    Again?

    I think the the seat tube/seat stay looks radiculusssss (as in ridiculously good, if you didn't catch it from my non-frumpy non-modern language).

    I love the curved stays! I'm sure it will ride as good as it looks.

    I was going to ask why you went with the 5 o'clock brake routing on the top tube, but that seems to be the way most bikes in the Kirk gallery are setup.

    How do you wrap your hand around the top tube when carrying the bike, or when position the cable when you put the bike in the cradles on a car carrier?

    Truck bed + rack for front fork = no worries about car carrier. My Fuji has a similar brake cable routing, a couple rubber spacers and it's all good.

    I don't want to start any debates about "best builders" here, but golly, Dave Kirk has to be right there with the finest.

    Your project here has made me rethink a purchase from a noted Euro builder this winter.

    I think I'll just keep saving my pocket change till I can order one of these.

    Gorgeous sir.

    My AX has them and it can be a bit of a PITA when hanging on the wall mounts but it's not that big of a deal. I prefer it aesthetically over the classic top of the top tube guides.

    So you have no problems with people posting non-C & V bikes in the C & V forum?

    I do. For his punishment, he must send the frame to me. It's too big, but I'll suffer through it.

    I've got to find him a suitable Primal outfit to wear on that bike. He knows what I mean.

    Of course not, seeing as I did it. People had problems with ME posting one, which is why I was defending myself.

    This is what I would pick for color. I really like it. I like the first white/green as well, but white (as a main color) doesn't age as well and can look dated easily.

    I didn't have a problem with you posting a non-C&V bike, I just said that I didn't like the one you posted.
