Some customers know exactly what they want and look to VeloColour to execute their paint dreams, others don’t have a creative bone in their body. If you are part of the later group, we are here to help. Both Noah and Suzanne have fine art background so we are more than qualified to help you make your dream bike come together by creating a custom design for you. Send us some inspiration like colour, patterns or other details that excite you and we can take it from there (unrelated to bicycles preferred).
