The 29er mountain bike came from the desire of KirkLee wanting to design a bike that is beautiful and with every piece made almost exclusively in Austin, Texas. A mountain bike that has all the passion of our road frames and then some. It is fast and climbs with precision. It feels like you are cheating. Did we mention it is fast? As seen here the complete bike (21″) is 18.8 lbs and the frame is 1200 grams.

A lot of effort goes into each 29er frame starting with:

  • Bearing races co-molded in the head tube for the 1.5″ steer tube Lefty fork
  • Custom laid top and down tubes
  • Optional ISP, which can be converted to a 31.6 seat mast
  • 73mm PF-30 bottom bracket
  • Sculpted individual chain and seat stays molded in house
  • Billet 6061 drop outs, anodized your choice of colors
  • Internally drilled for Di2/EPS
  • Custom MTB laminates over all tube junctions

KirkLee 29er Dream Machine

We have built two “green machines,” so now let us introduce the dream machine.  This is one of the most detailed KirkLee’s ever built.  Our goal was to show off our tube molding and build a beautiful 29er.

KirkLee Hardtail 26″

The 2nd phase of the KirkLee hardtail prototype. We polished the 6/4 Ti dropouts to a mirror finish. We converted it to disc brakes using Chris King hubs and ZTR Alpine rims. Rotor cockpit, a Magura Durin SL fork and Marta SL brakes, which perform as good as they look. Weight with out pedals is…


KirkLee Leadville

Built to withstand the rigors of the Leadville 100. Featuring a carbon BB30 for added stiffness and custom Ti dropouts.

KirkLee Lefty 29er

The latest KirkLee Lefty 29er is on the loose. It weighs in at 19 lbs, but the owner is sure that it will be at 18.75 lbs once a few more parts arrive.

KirkLee Powertap 29er

KirkLee unveiled a 29er at Interbike 2008. Custom 6/4 Ti dropouts with a Powertap bring this bike to about 22 lbs.
