But, what do these sprays offer that’s different to what’s already available out there? It’s a new, inexpensive and fun way to customise your bike.

Spray.Bike was born out of the frustration cyclists had with paint for bike frames that were on the market. Nothing was good, and the results were disastrous. That’s why the guys at Vicious Cycles Athens and the paint company Cosmos Lac joined forces and after 2 years of development & testing in the factory the Spray.Bike as we know was created. Later on the team at Brick Lane Bikes joined the party and introduced the different range of colours and types of sprays for all needs.

But before we go on, we want to show you a video showing the many different possibilties when using these sprays on your bicycle:

How do you use Spray.Bike to paint your bicycle?
The paint adheres to the majority of raw metals and painted surfaces without any primer or preparation. If your frame has already been painted with a glossy finish, it’s necessary to use a fine sandpaper on this surface so that the new Spray.Bike paint will stick to the surface. Before using the spray, shake it for around 3 minutes.

The ideal distance for spraying your bike is between 5 and 12 centimetres. At this distance the paint will land on the frame in perfect conditions. closer than 5 centimetres will produce faults. Anything further than 12 centimetres and the paint will be too dry to adhere to the frame, resulting in a powdery finish which easily rubs off.

Try to keep your hand continuously moving while spraying so that you get a nice and even colour. After applying the spray to the areas you want to paint you can still cover imperfections wherever necessary. If you want to use the spray after having it stored for some time, you should try it on cardboard before applying it on your bike. If the paint does not come out as fluid as it used to, you should change the nozzle for optimal results.

To get the best results, be patient. Even if the paint appears to dry quickly, we recommend leaving the paint to dry for at least 12 hours, before mounting your bicycle.

We also have Spray.Bike Smoothing Putty available, which you need if you frame is damaged, has some scratches or bumps and bruises. With this product you spray a base layer over the damages to get a smooth, even surface which you can paint afterwards. There is also the Spray.Bike Transparent Varnish which you use after spraying and which allows you to create a satin (1 layer), glossy (2 layers), or lacquer (3 layers) finish, depending on how many layers you spray.
