Steel

Trust the Process

For all steel frames we install stainless steel couplers with pointed edges. We use low heat silver brazing to install them. We can fit couplers in non-round and tapered tubes either by rounding the tube or adding shims.

​A coupler adds about 5 oz of weight each. When the couplers are brazed in, about two inches of paint on either side of each coupler gets removed and later retouched.

Repaint

During the coupler installation process, about two inches of paint on either side of the coupler gets burned off. It is essential that all of the bare steel on your bike gets covered with something to prevent corrosion. We offer several types of touch-ups as well as full repaints. Peruse color options here!

Utility Touch-up

This will protect your bike frame from corrosion. It is a matte primer in grey or black primer. 

 w/o travel package        $125

Custom Match Touch-up

We offer a custom formulated touch up to match your bike. For older or worn bikes we recommend a full repaint.

 w/o travel package    $300

Contrast Touch-up

We make about a 3" panel around the coupler. Stripe decals can be purchased for an additional charge to accent the panel.

Powder coat

This is a full strip and repaint for your bike. Color options are listed here. Powder coat is much more durable than wet paint.
