New paint

Postby Loonan » Thu Mar 14, 2013 8:13 pm

Anyone know an inexpensive place to get a hardtail frame stripped and painted ? I know rainbow will powdercoat for $130 but I'd like to explore more inexpensive avenues that aren't the " rattle can " aisle at home depot...

If you know anyone that does body work in their garage, they might be able to paint for you. I asked a few guys I work with that paint their own parts and they all said the same thing. For $130 let rainbow powdercoat it. I haven't had Rainbow do any bike frames for me, but they do alot of the industrial equipment I work with, and we have been more than happy with the results.

Yo Big Fish. Your Stumpjumper was powdercoated at Rainbow. I thought they did a damn nice job.

I wasn't sure where the stumpy was powdercoated. Cool to hear it was at rainbow. I am considering having them do a Schwinn pixie for my older daughter.

Noel, that girl should be the official mascot of LAMBA. Words can't describe the awesomeness of that picture.

I didn't post that pic. Moderators must be bored. I like your version better though.
