Design

Some customers know exactly what they want and look to VéloColour to execute their ideas, others don’t have a creative bone in their body. Either way, we’re here to help. Both Noah and Suzanne have design and fine art education and are more than qualified to help you make your dream bike come together with custom design work for you. Send us some inspiration images with colours, patterns or anything else that excites you and we can take it from there. Inspiration unrelated to bicycles can sometimes offer more freedom of design.

We’ll provide you with 2-3 frame and fork drawings, giving you options in colour and design and options to adjust from there- from $275

Beyond Bicycles

Do you want to paint something that isn’t a bicycle? We’re OK with that - we’ll paint almost anything. Work is charged according to time spent (minimum starting price is $250). Email us an image of what you would like painted and we can provide an estimate.

  • We bill hourly and do our best to estimate the time that will be spent. The above numbers are estimates and all jobs are invoiced according to actual time spent. Feel free to email for an estimate.

  • VéloColour will only accept frames that are stripped of all components including headset & bottom bracket.

  • Drop-off, pick-up and/or delivery are the responsibility of the customer.

  • Properly packing and shipping your frame takes time. We charge $75 on top of listed prices for this service. Shipping within North America is usually between CDN $160-$210.

  • Our current wait time is about 12-15 weeks as of March 15, 2019. We will need your bike in our shop for 2-4 weeks depending on paint complexity.
