It’s been a busy year so far for Quirk Cycles who have been working hard developing the
brand with the introduction of three new base models. Known for making beautiful,
bespoke bikes from their London workshop, Quirk has introduced new base models, each
one created for a specific riding purpose. All three of the new models reflect founder Rob
Quirk’s passion for multi-surface adventures, with the Durmitor and the Kegety directly
inspired by his own experiences on the Transcontinental Race and Silk Road Mountain
Race. But what has really caught our attention is their new GRoad bike, the Mamtor.
The Mamtor is an all-terrain gravel-road bike with the ability to run large tyre sizes while
sticking to its road credentials - the perfect do-it-all bike for those who like to switch it up
between road and gravel. This year at Bespoked Bristol (the UK NAHBS), Quirk Cycles
revealed a very special version of the Mamtor; a prototype model utilizing 3D printed
stainless steel parts. Having been in development for the past year, Quirk has utilized ALM
manufacturing processes to construct their own 3D printed dropouts and a new seat
cluster design with integrated seat clamp, possibly a first in steel bicycle design. Speaking
with Quirk, there are many advantages to using 3D parts in a frames construction not to
mention weight savings, less heat cycles during fabrication and alignment benefits.
Crucially though, the parts solve many construction problems but also add a new level of
aesthetic beauty to their frames finish. Although still prototyping at this stage, Quirk hopes
to roll out the parts gradually into his new model lines.
It’s hard to look at this bike and not notice the jaw-dropping paint job executed by Cole
Coatings Workshop. An organic finish applied with absolute control and precision, a secret
formula has been used to apply layer upon layer of paint without problematic product build.
Once all the colours were applied Cole got to work tearing and ripping through the top
layers of colour to reveal the ones beneath. Once happy they set upon using different
grades of abrasive to cut through more layers of paint to reveal even more colours. Silver
leaf is applied in an unorthodox fashion, sanding and rubbing through before it has set to
give an irregularity that makes this finish quite unique. The colours used in this particular
house special were picked from Quirk Cycles new 2019 seasonal colours.
This particular bike will be making its way to Barcelona to SRAM ambassador Charles
Reza. Charles has been working with Quirk Cycles since the company was founded racing
for the Quirk Cycles sponsored team East London Fixed. He’s keen to get hold of this one
and shred it on the trails around Barcelona, just be careful with that paint!
