Don Walker 1994 Pursuit Bike at NAHBS

don_walker_94_pursuit-1

Things were different in the ’90s. Steel was still real, purple was cool the first time around, the the rules allowed builders to push bicycle design in the name of speed. Don Walker built this bike for Shawn Wallace to use in the 1994 Commonwealth Games, where he ended up taking home silver in the 4 km individual pursuit. Besides the frame construction, note the one sided fork and Russian tensioned Kevlar disc wheel. Great to see a well-used bike from a different era of racing and bike construction making a public appearance. www.donwalkercycles.com
