I'm gonna get my c40 resprayed and was hoping to see some examples of work any of you have had done, in particular carbon frames.

Where did you get done, what was the cost, how is it holding up durability wise?

Cheers!

    FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST DO NOT USE MARIO VAZ.

    Consider yourself warned.

    Not sure if Argos do carbon, but http://www.argoscycles.com/
  • I had a frame resprayed by argos some years ago, superb job, very helpfull towards my requirements, returned on time and no complaints, any argos frame or respray comes in high regard round my way.

    Worth a call

    Good luck

    Yeah I have spoken to Argos, communication with them has been somewhat vague. Emails also get returned but they are on the list along with Atlantic.

    Come on there must be some nice respray photos floating around here, I thought this could be a good resource for us..

    I've had 2 frames resprayed by Atlantic Boulevard - a Colnago and a Gios - in both cases the quality was top notch - the Gios guys a L'Eroica were impressed by the quality too. I did enquire with Argos originally but frankly their indifferent attitude put me off. Neil at AB is a one-man outfit and clearly takes pride in his work. Expect to pay in the region of £300 for frame and forks.
    The Colnago is polished titanium and carbon - the lacquer is still good on the polished metal after 5 years - the original didn't last that long.
