2018 Philly Bike Expo: Altruiste Plump Watermelon Pump Track Bike
Photos and words by Jarrod Bunk
Altruiste made quite the splash at NAHBS this year with their Best MTB and Best In Show for their Fundy, but I remember seeing this bike hanging from a stand wondering where the rest of the parts were, it turns out they were getting dunked in the anodizing tanks of Asheville. Paul Component, White Industries, and Industry 9 came together to create some very special faded parts that compliment this plump pump track bike.
If you’re able to check out Industry 9’s facility you may see the lucky owner shredding the pump track on their lunch break.
