Pursuit Cycles

This bike was shown at the King Open House last Fall. We opted for a classy silver color that shows off the contours of the frame.

Here is a bike that is currently hanging at Blacksmith Cycle in Toronto. The paint was inspired by the 1980's Marlboro Yamaha Moto GP bikes (also pictured).

I'd been watching F1 and Moto GP on TV for years. I always a huge fan of Wayne Rainey and Eddie Lawson. Having only seen the bikes on TV (1980's TV no less), I assumed the red/orange was regular old red. The first time I went to an actual race and saw the livery in person I was shocked because the red was fluorescent. That moment stuck with me - the excitement of going to my first race, seeing, hearing and smelling all the action. So I thought it would be fun to re-live it in a small way by using the color on one of our frames.

The studio shots don't really show the vibrance of the color, but the motorcycle pics does, and I included a pic of it in my back yard that does. It is an awesome color.

That’s a cool color scheme and inspiration, Carl! As you said, the backyard shot really makes the orange color pop!!

I love the stance this bike has. It looks like it's out for blood.

What do you think of the tan sidewalls? On the right bike, I like them. They look great on this bike.

The AR is done and available. We're working on getting all the info up on our site. I hope to publish the new pages and send out a formal announcement next Tuesday.

Fresh off the press - our new All Road. Fits 700cx40 or 650bx50 and standard road rings. Having been building Dirt Road/Gravel Grinders for several decades now, this bike incorporates all that I love in a All Road bike.
