George Brannigan’s Lousa, Maribor & Losinj Custom Painted Propain Rage Race Bike

George Brannigan's Propain Rage 2020

Press Release: Propain

In honor of the Propain Factory team's paint roller sponsor RS Farbroller we decided for the 2020 season we would get creative with three of George's World Cup race bikes introducing them at different points in the season. Here we have the machine George would have been racing for Lousa, Maribor and Lošinj, World Cups 1, 2 and 3. We thought we might as well show it to you guys now cause it's just too sexy to be hiding away until September! Paintjob by: 70.id



bigquotesSeeing this bike all built up just makes me so stoked to get back overseas to race. I've only ever had 2 custom painted bikes, so to have three in one season is pretty special. This thing is a work of art! George Brannigan


The bike has been setup to match George practice bike so it's pretty much good to go when he can get back to Europe, wherever that might be. Other than the stunning paint and prototype tires from Vee these are all off the shelf parts which anyone can go out and buy.

 That's some beautiful paint.

 Why do propaine bikes consistently look the best?

 @DaFreerider44: I wouldn't say "The best" but I have to agree its one of the best looking bikes out there. I still can't get over the name Propain. It reminds me of Hank Hill....

 @jomacba: Do they have good accessories?

 @jomacba: prolly one of the few bikes that look better than this are the custom painted DJ and slopestyle bikes like Brett Rheeder's Kashima bike, but that's just my opinion.

 @Explodo: It appears as though they only have Propain Accessories..

 @DaFreerider44: Fair enough. If we speaking in terms of paint, I'd say this is easily one of the nicest paint jobs I've seen. In terms of overall astetics, its still up there, but I'd have to say I'm a huge fan of the look of the V10 29. Its all business.

 Damn, we whooped Waki’s ass today. I feel sort of bad but it’s a little bit of that “good” bad, in a way.

 @jomacba: Good looking bike, but "Propain powered", and everybody bashes ebikes...

 @RowdyAirTime: I think ebikes are brilliant. But I also think they have quite a bit of room for improvement

 @jomacba: They should definitely rename it the Hank bahah

 That is so sick. Its like those colours of mineral deposits you get around a geothermal vent or something. Unreal.

Not seen much about those pedals, anyone used them?
  • 4 0
 Came straight to the comments as they weren't listed in the bike check. I can't even find them in Sixpack's site. And they have the pivoting cage I came to love in the old Shimano 636s or VP's 133-DHs.
  • 2 0
 @southoftheborder: think it has spring tension to keep the cleat/clip part of the petal angled up above the cage for ease of insertion? that would be cool...
  • 5 0
 @southoftheborder: those pedals are our team prototypes and will be available in our online shop in the future.
  • 1 0
 @stiingya: yup, exactly the same way the pedals I mentioned in my previous comment. Works wonders when you are in a hurry to clip in.

 @SIXPACK-Racing-GmbH: excelente! I'll keep an eye on your site then.

 @Shredtheduck - All the upvotes, that's exactly what it looks like! Burnt orange & electric blue are my fav colors: the way they blended / transitioned these colors is so utterly fantastic that I'm seriously considering stealing this idea & custom painting my next frame!

 @Veloscente: so right! If you can get someone to do it - see if they'll give you a discount for doing 2! Wink

 those Vee proto's look like another nice addition to the MM Assegai style of tires.
  • 3 0
 Those look like prototype Vee tires (saw on Vital). Looks like they took Assegai center tread and DHF side knobs. I was wondering how long it would take before the Assegai clones started.

 I definitely used the wrong brand paint roller in my kitchen - doesn't look anywhere near that good
  • 2 0
 Only because you needed polyethelyne food wrap more than a roller

 Most custom paint jobs either dont do it for me, or are just "meh" to me.....this one though, my god is that BEAUTIFUL!

 Here we have the new "assetyre " in the front, they start coping the minion and now with the assegai..

 it's a pretty exact copy of a Assegai center treads and Minion side knobs...

 @jzPV: minion side knobs mounted on backwards.

 They already cancelled the re-scheduled Fall races that were announced last week?

 Even the brakes are custom!! Sram Core RSC according to the specs. Must be Sram's new 6 piston set.

 Love that paint, but the rear shock placement still freaks me out.Get a rock in the wrong spot and suddenly you're out looking for a brand new shock.
  • 1 0
 It is a sick paint job, i agree, but you would have nothing to worry about with the rear shock placement. I wish more bikes came that way. Dirt bikes have been set up that way forever, and there is way more going on back there with a dirt bike , compared to a mtb. But than again , the Cannondale Lefty thing still freaks me out.

 Interesting marketing plan for a company that doesn't sell to consumers. Are the executives from Purdy, Wooster, and Wagner big DH fans?

 Fuk flats is a thing..?
  • 2 0
 well, kind off, just spelled differently. FCK flats. It´s just another overpriced product from Marshy, total cost of making exact copy is like 5quids, so why not ask 30. That´s healthy profit for sure, almost as good as selling rebranded mastic tape.
