I've been building frames under the Quirk Cycles name for four years. I’ll be onto my hundredth frame soon! The company was built on my love of simple engineering, bicycle design and mechanics. The drive has always been finding ways to build on that foundation to make bikes that ride like no other.
You’re an ultra-distance rider. What’s the toughest race you’ve entered?
Each throws up a different set of problems and ways to approach them. The Transcontinental for me was a race of the mind where each day was a constant battle of wills. The Silk Road Mountain Race on the other hand was just a huge physical challenge, coping with the terrain, altitude sickness and the constant stomach problems that everyone encountered.
