After cleaning my road bike yesterday I noticed a few chips and scratches to the underside steel chainstays.

I need to get this covered up and started looking at Halfrauds touch up/chip repair kits.
Is there any alternative? Such as paint match services or colour matching using RAL or Pantone?

I am very keen to match the original paintwork as closely as possible so keen to explore other options before riding to Halfords.

  • It is often a case of just matching it by eye. Years ago if you contacted a manufacturer they could sometimes supply you with a pot of the original paint. It might be worth contacting LeMond.
