3. Respray the frame - meet Paulo Spike

Respraying the bicycle frame and forks: Often, you will find that second-had frames and forks are rusty with damaged paintwork and occasional dings. If this is not the problem, you might still want to entertain your inner creative and treat your soon-to-be bicycle to a bespoke paintjob.

In our bike workshop, we have Paulo Spike, a teenage bodywork wizard. He resprayed our frame. Typically, Paulo charges about £70-£90 for sandblasting, priming, spraying and lacquering.

With Paulo, you are not only getting an excellent job, you are also supporting a youth volunteer in our Bike Recycling Scheme
