I'm going through 4 matt black options at the moment, but might have a look at matt grey as wellI like the sound of that, would love mine in matt grey. Whereabouts was this...did they specify how much you need to strip things down....do they prime and then powder coat...consdidering how much I've spent on near gearset, this would finish things off nicely
Yes I have seen in the £70 - to £90 range when searching for bike powder coaters.That seems pretty good, certainly cheaper than I expected.
Might be because these guys do just about anything, so they are not aiming at just one area of the market and the price to match.seems cheap than the first places I've found close to me
I'd be interested in the details as well, as need to have some garden furniture done
The company is called Specialist Powder Coating based in Sittingbourne Kent and reply to contact us pretty quickly and with all questions answered (for me that was the case)Yep,what he said please
So out of interest what do you need to give them, just the frame with EVERYTHING else stripped out? Brakes, cranks, pivot bearings? OR DO THEY do some of that for you if you supply the bike (assume not)
I'm going to guess that if you do not want it powder coated then you need to remove it and as they are a general powder coaters, they are not going to be up with what is a headset cup or an ARC frame washer/bearing.So out of interest what do you need to give them, just the frame with EVERYTHING else stripped out?

Slacker!well, I managed to finish the month with a 36k ride taking me to 600k for the month...that and 119km ran as well. been a big week too so looking forward to a weekend of little or no fitness-based stuff at all...
then it all starts again on Monday
Really feeling it as its
I generally ride with a short sleeve cycling top in the summer and a warmer top/merino baselayer in the winter. However this year it’s been quite cold and I’ve been using my ‘boil in the bag’ cheapo rain jacket as a windbreaker, but it gets wetter inside than it does out. This jacket should hopefully eleminate the internal precipitationnice...I'll be investigating warmer tops at some point, as currently I've only been wearing t-shirts and the most part this has been fine, that said I'm not into riding when it's wet...!
yes, i made the mistake of buying a cheap 10 quid (in a sale) water resistant jacket...wore it once and like you said -was soaking on the inside...got an old fleece that could work when it's cold...but as I said i don;t really intend to go out when wet, cold days tho...think i have that covered with a few base layers, but it's easy to buy stuff when there's ma few offers on..I generally ride with a short sleeve cycling top in the summer and a warmer top/merino baselayer in the winter.

yep, it had forecast rain for today (tho, that's no longer the case..) and wanted to get some miles in...but hadn't realised how hot it was when i first stepped outside..! luckily it clouded over a bit afterwards...I've gotta say, I'm quite impressed with all you folk picking this up and doing quite well; I had a whole month of slacking off (part mental, part rain, part bad timing), got 60 miles in over the last 3 days so hopefully I'll get back to some sort of shape soon. Hoping for a bigger ride on Sunday, maybe 40 miles or so.
I think strava can show you that...sort of.they seem a decent brand canyon - saw some videos on their mountain bikes..
wish my gps would do the amount i freecycled (cadence) as especially when I'm going downhill i freewheel a lot and would be interesting to know how much..
