JK Special / $4600 Base
The original JK Special is the bike that started the progression and evolution of the JKS family. There have been some updates over time to further improve the ride or reduce weight but at it’s core the JKS is a full-on race bike that you can race on weekends, do your Tuesday night Worlds on and then take out for a century ride. The original JKS is built with oversized main tubes, Kirk by Reynolds stays and blades, and lugs by Llewellyn of Australia and has a moderate slope to the top tube. It can be made with traditional straight seat stays or the optional curved Terraplane stays to up the performance on less than perfect surfaces one more notch. This, and all versions of the JKS, use the Kirk Triple F dropouts to make things simple, strong and light.
