At Groody Brothers Bicycle Restoration Project we are bicycle enthusiasts who understand that a bike is not just a piece of metal, it is a personal expression of the owner.
As powder coat specialists and bicycle mechanics, we understand how a bike is assembled, and how it needs to be coated.
Most powder coaters are job shops processing whatever comes in the door. As long as it's made of metal, they'll coat it . A bicycle frame is treated no differently than a truck bumper or piece of lawn furniture.
We began as bicycle mechanics. We understand how a bike is assembled, and that mechanical tolerances must be respected. Protecting the threaded surfaces, race areas, and seat tube interiors is critical.
We view bicycles as functional pieces of rolling art. Quality frame builders, past and present, put a tremendous amount of effort into creating these beautiful sculptures. Details are important. A lugged steel frame that loses its edge definition due to a coating that is too thick is unacceptable. Here at Groody Bros. we treat each bike as if it were our own. No shortcuts, it's right or we do it over. We stand behind our work and our reputation.
Do you need your head badge removed and reinstalled? Don't have the tools to remove your bottom bracket? Do you have a vintage frame that fits perfectly but you want to be able to modernize your components? Perhaps you want a custom two tone color scheme? Don't bother asking a typical powder coat shop. They won't be able to help.
Cottered cranks? Not a problem. We have a comprehensive collection of tools and techniques to solve problems that even bike shops can't resolve.
We also offer a modest array of frame repair or modification services. A frame with a ding in the top tube is not uncommon. These can be filled in.
Changing the cable routing to utilize modern components is another common procedure.
Checking and adjusting frame alignment is also available.
Want your rims to match your frame? We can disassemble and re-lace your wheels.
Our primary goal is to assist you in creating the bike of your dreams, your personal extension of who you are and why you ride.
Every bike comes with a story.
While we at GB hate to turn away work, please know that our Spring Schedule is completely booked at this time. With over 20 projects in line, we would ask that you hold onto your bicycle and contact us over the summer. Unless, you wish to get in line now and don't mind the wait. We were slowed by the move and unusually high demand for our services.
