    No idea about the paint.

    I can recommend two nice bike stores. One is Mountrak on the Fracc. Candiles (Corregidora), pretty nice variety, but a bit expensive by now. And an Alubike store at Plaza Cibeles (Av. Bernardo Quintana, by the arcs) not so varied but with some of the best pricing around.

    It would be very difficult -if not imposible- to find a place for bike-specific painting in Mexico. Most painting jobs are done in places called Paint and Tinware Workshops (Talleres de Hojalatería y Pintura). You need to find a good one that might have some experience working with bikes or motorbikes and work closely with the workers about the kind of work (paint, colour, texture , etc) you want for your vintage bike. With patience and some luck, you can find a good place for it. It is amazing what some of this workshops can do for very little money. Otherwise ask in the bike stores recommended above. They might have some better options.

    Hi,

    I write in spanish and english , although my thought are that your native language is Portuguese.

    Yo conozco a dos verdaderos artistas de la pintura de bicicletas , hacen trabajos fuera de serie , uno está en el estado de Hidalgo se llama Jaime Valencia quien además de ser un excelente ciclista de montaña es un artista para pintar marcos de bici , una de sus inspiraciones es el inglés Roger Dean .

    El otro está en la Ciudad de Puebla y es otro artista del pintado de bicis , se llama Arturo Robles Salazar .

    saludos

    Gracias a todos! Thanbks everyone. I will check those shops in Queretaro.. Btw, i've been in San Miguel Allende this week end and it seems like a hot spot for trail riding. Saw loads of FS on back of trucks awaiting for action.
