Paint Care

A small amount of regular care and attention is the key to maintaining the long lasting beauty of your painted frame. We recommend the following care:

  • Avoid keeping your painted frame in full sunlight—over time concentrated UV rays may fade the color.
  • Immediately wipe off any corrosive or acidic substances such as sap, juice, sunscreen, tar, chemicals, or animal droppings.
  • Never use acetone on painted surfaces.
  • Wipe off dirt with a soft cloth using soap and water or any paint-safe cleaning product.
  • If your chainstays are painted, consider a chainstay protector to avoid chain-slap chipping.
