Colourbolt Scared Black
Once you have purchased your new bike from us, it will be put into the build queue for one of our workshops. Your bike will be built and will undergo a Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI) by one of our expert mechanics. A PDI is a checklist that the mechanic follows to confirm that all parts of your new bike are up to our high standards.
Next, your bike will be prepared for shipping. Padding is used on all the necessary areas and your bike is loaded into a sturdy cardboard bike box. All the necessary paperwork and accessories will be packed inside too. Most of our cardboard and packaging are recycled from incoming deliveries. Bikes are usually delivered by DPD within the UK.
In order to package your bike safely, you will need to do a small amount of assembly when it arrives. It can vary from bike to bike, but usually you’ll need to: fit the front wheel, install the handlebars and fit the pedals. Please note that not all bikes come with pedals - please check the specification on each bike, we’ll include it on there.

Product DescriptionThere's something special about a steel bike. They have soul, so the saying goes. And part of the soul of a bike is in its various dents and dings – imperfections that tell a story. But what if every scrape and scratch made your bike look better, not worse? That's the question that gave rise to our new Scarred Black paint finish.
Colourbolt started with a mirror polished stainless steel XCR frame, then we created some scratches – actually copied them from another frame that has seen plenty of action in the past. We then made a mask of those scratches and used that to cover up bits of the new frame during the powder coating process. The effect once finished is of silvery scars showing through the finish and it looks incredibly cool.
And the best bit? If you get any new bumps and dings you just polish up the steel beneath – so the more scrapes you get on the frame, the better it'll look.
