We bought a second hand bike for Colin (his first 700c) but he didn’t like the color. So we decided to do a custom paint job. And since I had just bought my Colnago we decided to name the bike Colinago… get it?

  • I had the logo made by It was $25 including shipping.
  • Paint was from 
    Primer, silver, red, black and transparent finish with tax and shipping was $104. 
  • The rest were goggles and masks, masking tape and a big piece of plastic to build a painting chamber in the garage.

I left the garage door open for ventilation and only painted for small periods of (pretty toxic!) time with goggles, masks and gloves. I wore my oldest clothes and threw it away afterwards. Very happy with the end result!
