The steps to design your dream bike
Step 1. Paint Finish
There are three paint options available, Gloss, Matt, or Glitter. Gloss is the default finish, whereas there is a small upgrade cost of £50 for a Matt finish and the glitter adds an extra £220.
The default option is Gloss paint which adds a highly reflective sheen for a slick, contemporary look.
Matt paint gives the bike a softer look and accentuates every curve and shape of the tubing.
The third option is the glitter colourway, little flakes within the paint catch the light, this paintwork looks sensational and positively sparkles when in direct sunlight.
Step 2. Frame Colour
Select the main colour of the frame and forks. You can choose a single solid colour throughout or opt for a 2 colour fade (gradient, more on this below).
Step 3. Decal Colour
Choose the colour of your downtube decals, depending upon the type of bike there can be anything between 15 and 30 options to choose from!
Step 4. Gradient
Feeling extra creative? Why not add a second colour to the frame to create a stunning two-tone paint finish like the one pictured below.
Step 5. Gradient Angle
The standard 0° gradient option has one solid colour at the top which gradually fades vertically into whichever secondary colour you have selected. There are also 90° and 135° options available which change the angle of where on the frame this fade occurs.
Step 6. Accents
Some (but not all) of our bike models have little designs on the fork (accents). Each accent can be coloured independently, so you can even mix and match them should you so wish! Or, if you prefer you can choose to have no accents at all.
Step 7. Colour match cockpit
The final option for an added touch of bling is to have the cockpit (handlebar/stem) painted to match your frame. If the bike is fitted with the LEVEL 5 integrated handlebar system then the entire assembly will be painted. They will always be painted to match whichever colour you have specified for the frames headtube area. If you would like to specify a different colour please get in touch and we will work with you to colour the bars as you would like.
Warning: It should be noted that if the bike is fitted with a traditional handlebar and stem, only the stem is painted.
One of the most important components to improve the performance of a bike, a good set of wheels can make or break a ride. Here we highlight our range of Level wheels.
