Hi, i am currently about to buy a NS Bikes Quark Big Stem 2010. However i would like to know any one or any ideas of who could customise it for me i.e. paint a certain style/pattern on it and make a professional job of it. However, would i be able to take it to an ordinary body shop and get it done there. I hope you get the picture of what i am trying to say. Thank you :D.

    Isn't a stem a bit small, I'd say you would be better off with a custom saddle cover or something, or an extra bit of detailing on the frame

    Airbrush artist, signwriter or even a custom printed sticker/vinyl graphic would be worth looking into it just depends on the design you want putting on.

    Why are MTB economics; spend twice as much as you intended, but only half as much as you wish you could afford? :roll:
  • ok thanks. the design is nothing fancy, just a stylish union jack or something like that....

    Find your nearest college that does fine art, digital art, graphic design or something similar. You'll be able to pay a cutting edge and fresh designer about £50 or less to do something totally unique that a commercial company would charge you loads more for. :D

    What as opposed to a pro airbrusher or sign writer who can do it in no time and use th right paints/sticker? if you already have a concept drawing it won't cost much at all.
