Custom Paint - A Masterclass In Bespoke Bicycle Paintwork

Published on February 10th 2019


Have you ever dreamed of having your own custom painted bike? It might not be as exclusive as you might think... Ollie took a trip to see paintwork artist Rob of Colourburn Studio to see just how it’s done, and take home a little bit of our very own GCN bling!

If you think that custom painted frames are reserved only for professional road cyclists, think again. Having your own bike painted is now more accessible than ever. But just how is it done? We went to meet Rob to learn exactly what processes go into painting a custom frame, and he painted us our very own souvenir to take back to GCN HQ.

Have you got a custom painted frame? Let us know in the comments!

With thanks to Rob at Colourburn Studio 🎨
