How to choose color?

Viks frames are powdercoated with RAL colors.  There are many RAL charts available online, but as always, shades and toes can vary on different screens. Most of the colors we’ve done are up on the gallery, to give you some ideas, but we suggest finding a physical RAL color chart just to be sure you get the exact tone you desire. If you cant find your tone in the shops color selection, don’t worry, write us at info@viks.cc and we can look for the exact finish you are after.

How much is the shipping cost?

Why is there a lead time and how long is it?

All Viks bicycles/frames are hand made to order. Frameset can be built within two to four weeks, it takes about a week or two to build the bicycle and ship it. Timeframe can change if there is a great demand and that is why we always specify the time when placing an order. As well we are encouraging you to make early reservation to our production schedule – no matter when (could be in June, October, December or different) you want to have your bike. It can minimize production time of your bike big time.
