Thomson’s Eric Lassiter, one of their engineers, took a few of the bike parts over to their aerospace partner and got a few bits and pieces done up in white. The paint is the same as what’s used on Gulfstream jets, so it should hold up pretty well.
The anodized red and blue are another experiment to gauge consumer response. Like it? Leave a comment. Oh, and that titanium handlebar is inching ever closer to production. They had a test model that had done 300,000 cycles on their fatigue tester and it still looked rock solid. That’s about double the CEN standard.
