Important Considerations

Colors: (Painting/Coating)—Painting or coating the rack will result in a maintenance problem, as no coating will withstand the abuse of the bicycles. Powder coating cannot be maintenanced; an enamel finish will chip. AAA Ribbon Bike Rack Co. has the best solution where color is essential. To find out how to achieve an appropriate color with a minimum of maintenance please see painting instructions.

Materials: Steel tubing or aluminum are not suitable materials for a bicycle rack. Pre-galvanized material will flake and crack during manufacture. AAA Ribbon Bike Rack Co. uses heavy-duty steel pipe, hot-dipped galvanized after fabrication to provide security and durability.

Manufacture: Hydraulic bending with a mandril, as used by AAA Ribbon Bike Rack Co., insures smooth and aesthetic curves on the Ribbon Bike Rack. Press bending leaves an indentation; other methods flatten outer curves and crimp inner curves.
