PROCESS: Most of the bicycles we paint are steel, titanium, Aluminum and Carbon Fiber. After an initial inspection we mechanically blast each frame creating a tooth for the paint to adhere to. For metals, this is done with a process known as sandblasting, which employs a special media to give the material enough tooth to bond with the paint while remaining gentle enough to avoid damaging the work surface. After this we clean the frame with a special solvent to remove grease and oils left behind from handling. Next, two coats of premium two part primer are applied to the frame. The frame is then inspected a second time, and small imperfections are sanded. We then clean the primed surface in preparation for the base coat. The base coat, the first (and sometimes only) color is applied in two to three very light coats. After this time the surface is inspected again. we run a tack cloth over the work piece to insure no dust is present. one of the last steps is to clear coat the bike. This is done with two coats. After this the bike is left to dry for 24 -72 hrs to let the paint cure.
