Quirk Pursuit Track

3 years dreaming, designing and saving, as well as a total 9 month production time was the process taken to finish this frame. I came to Rob looking for a custom bike, with sketches and drawings of what I'd envisioned, needless to say he was pumped to get it started, but uncharted territory meant both Quirk and painters Cole Coatings spent more time on this frame than many of the previous ones. All of which I'm incredibly grateful for. So from paper sketches to bike fit renders this frame is based on post 1980’s bicycles that changed what a bike both looked like and was capable of. Of course before UCI bans took action as a result of such advantages. Pursuit frames made by Cinelli, Moser and Rossin are all inspiration for this truly special bike. Finished in some very special parts I've spent nearly 2 years collecting everything is as it should be.... unless one of those 3ttt Carbon pursuit bars come up of course. Until then, she's sitting all pretty.

Nice! For aesthetics I would turn the handlebar to line up with the stem

I spend more time riding the bike than looking at it, so feel comes before aesthetics ;)
