Paints, and repaints
We no longer offer repaints - once you take delivery of the frame you're free to arrange it of course, but we don't facilitate the process. We can, however, sell you replacement decals for $30 shipped domestically. Please call us to make sure we have the decals before the frame gets sandblasted - we try to keep decals in stock, but they're expensive, the minimums are high, and they only get used once a year or something so it's pretty low on the list of our priorities if cash is tight. Rambouillet decals are gone and we can't get any more.
Here's who we've used before - the prices might not be current:D & D Painting (Rick Stefani)— S.F. Bay Area $500 full Riv cream
Rick has been painting bikes for almost 30 years and is entirely a one-man shop. He’s repainted hundreds of Rivendells, probably thousands of Ritcheys, hundreds of early Fishers…and countless oldie restoration paint jobs. His paint jobs last, look good, and are a great value.

Joe Bell—$1,300/full cream detail; $725 solid color—just north of Mexico
Joe is the best bike painter in the world and paints all of our customs. His paint is consistently thin and tough, leaving crisp lug edges that make a fine sharp edge against a cream panel or fill. For a super durable, museum quality paint job that looks good even under the magnifying glass, Joe’s your guy, and the many-month wait is worth it (he always has a backlog). You talk to him directly and he makes it happen the way you want. (619) 469-4312. He finally has a website: joebell.net.
Waterford Precision Bicycles—$850(?)—Wisconsin
This is WF’s standard repaint price for standard Rivendell “full-cream” treatment, and they do an excellent job. (262) 534-4190. http://waterfordbikes.com/w/
