Maybe someone has passed on their much loved older bike to you, you've been lucky enough to grab a real bargain in a sale or have located the perfect second-hand bike online. The size and performance are just right, but you hate the colour! This is when bicycle frame painting comes into its own whether you choose to do the job yourself or find a specialist service. If you have a few hours to spare over the weekend or on your days off why not have a go at painting your own bicycle frame? Just a few simple steps make the process simple and pain-free. First, disassemble the bike as much as you can and protect any screw threads by covering with masking tape. This prevents dried paint getting in the way of bike reassembly. To make sure the new paint holds and doesn't quickly flake off in the elements it is worth taking some time to thoroughly wash and degrease your bicycle frame. Give it a good wash with soapy water and finish with a specialist bike degreaser, making sure to get into every little fold. Then smooth out any marks on the frame, taking particular care if it is a more delicate carbon frame bicycle. Fill any holes or nicks with putty and sand these down as well.
