Do you sell Touch up Paint for Co-op Cycles bikes?

Hi,

Is there a way to get touch up paint for a bike.  I scratched my daughter’s fairly new CityCoop bike.. She loves this bike and I want to fix it for her. I think I need the NightSea color.

 

Thanks,

Tim

@TDH Thanks for reaching out!

We're sorry to hear about the scratch on your daughter's bike. While we don't sell touch up paint for bikes, we do have a few tips for you:

  • Depending on the depth of the scratch or chip, you may need to use a fine grit sand paper to soften the edges if they are rough or sharp. Do so lightly and carefully as to not scratch the rest of the paint on the bike.
  • Enamel model paint from your local hobby shop is your best bet. Finding the closest color can be challenging, sometimes asking for their expertise can be a huge help. Make sure you use enamel and not acrylic as it enamel based paint will seal stronger and protect the bike better.
  • If the chip or scratch is pretty small, you may be able to use clear nail polish to hide the mark and keep it sealed and protected.

Hopefully this helps, good luck!

@TDH Another source for touch up paint might be an auto supply shop.

Any bike that is used regularly will acquire dings, along with health benefits....
