Another Aesthetic Doozy From Independent Fabrication: Titanium Deluxe “Transition” Paint

The guys over in the weird, industrial corner (I promised myself I wouldn’t say armpit) of  Somerville, MA just keep on cranking out the hits. Other than saying that this one is a mountain frame, made out of titanium, there really isn’t all that much to say, but there is a whole lot more to look at after the break…

I custom painted my cross bike this way more than 7 years ago. And to be honest I got the idea from a similarly done DeRosa at the time.
End of story is that the paint scheme is not new/original….bike still wicked awesome.

Why the f*** would you ever paint Ti?!!!!! I don’t get it. Ti and carbon should always be displayed naked. Painting Ti is blasphemous.

BTW… the customer designed the paint job, we just executed it to their spec. And… it’s okay to paint titanium, if that is what you want to do. If you don’t want to then don’t, its not like anyone is saying bad things about Jesus or anything, they are just painting a bicycle. And… yeah, maybe something like that has been done before. We’re just trying to make people’s dreams come true, in the USA, by hand. xoxo, Tyler.
