The story of Spray.Bike
Spray.Bike is a collaboration between three different companies:
Brick Lane Bikes – a major international manufacturer, retailer and wholesaler in the bike industry, based in London
Vicious Cycles Athens – an urban bike workshop in the centre of Athens, Greece
Cosmos Lac – a high-tech paint manufacturer based in Greece
Spray.Bike was created out of frustration with existing products. If you’re not an experienced pro, it’s so difficult to use metal or car spray paint on bikes. It drips and dribbles and is extremely hard to control. And professional electrostatic or powder coating can get super expensive.
At VCA, while trying to repair a damaged frame using a standard RAL spray, we were so disappointed with the results that we phoned up the manufacturer, which happened to be Cosmos Lac. “Well what do you want the paint to do?” was the reply.
After 2 years of development, Spray.Bike was the answer.
VCA and Cosmos Lac sent samples over to Brick Lane Bikes in London for their highly trusted opinion. From the moment they tried it, they wanted to be part of the excitement too.
Since then, thousands of people around the world have transformed their bikes with Spray.Bike. Today there are hundreds of stockists and retailers of Spray.Bike in over 20 countries.
A modern business venture with partners in different corners of Europe, Spray.Bike is a true collaboration of strengths.
