Thanks! I agree - the orange bike is beautiful. It's has a gold metallic and it really pops in the sun.

Has he done any paint to a fat tube Ti bike on the Strong side??
Thanks! Yes, the same painter does Strong titanium frames when the customer prefers paint. Here is a link to a few that were done recently.

Here is a fun bike. This is a 2020 Pure Road. We call it the Parrot for obvious reasons. The cool thing about this paint job is that it's a double fade. The base colors of the frame have one fade and the lattice graphic have another. The final resulting colors are completely different from those of each layer.

Carl,

The looks incredible and the build compliments it nicely!

Gary W’s Painted Ti build w matching fenders is one one of the coolest Ti paint jobs I’ve seen.

Really love what you guys are doing via Pursuit right now! Keep up the good work.

Thanks a ton! We appreciate the support. We have a new Pursuit model coming out this spring complete with painted to match fenders. I'll post as soon as it's ready.

Here is something with a little more familiar color blocking. The color combo is outstanding if you ask me. I love the way the orange pops off the blue.

This frame is a 2021 Pure Road Climber. It weighed just over 700 grams before paint. It's pushing 800 with the paint.

^Every detail is perfect, right down to the matching BB and pedals.

Here is a fun bike we just finished up. It's our third model.

We call it the "Supple Road". It's a middle ground between our Pure Road and All Road. We designed it with two sets of wheels in mind. 650b x 42’s for all-road or gravel use and 700c for smaller faster tires.

The reason for the 650's is that you can run fenders or large tires without toe interference, which means we don't have to stretch out the wheelbase. The result is that it is a proper road bike when you run 700's.

The paint is the result of color separating an image of rust. It turned out really cool.

This bike has some of the most innovative design on the market. Nice, low BB for great handling. Thin stays and rear TT for a lively and comfortable ride. I'm totally lusting after a Pursuit Pure Road or an Argonaut RM3
