Show me you powdercoats
I just got mine back from Powder Coatings in Brum. They did a fantastic job for £48 (the guy is a keen cyclist so knows not to gum up any openings, and knows what colours work well, clean well and last.
He did my Cotic Soul a stealth matt black. It’s so amazing that it doesn’t show up on a photo, so I can’t post a pic.Posted 6 years agobm0p700fMember
Impact coating in Colchester. The finish is good but youl need to face off head tube and BB shell and tap out all threads.
If you have v-brake bosses mask them up as they didn’t for me and I had to get a file out and remove the paint.
A frame is £30 blasted primed and painted. It will use them again for my road bike which needs doing soon.Posted 6 years agoDaveyBoyWonderMember
Used Triple-s twice now and they’ve been nothing but perfect. Not as cheap as some of the other places mentioned here but the finish is flawless and all bearing surfaces etc masked off brilliantly. Needed no prep before rebuidling unlike the other two places I’ve had frames done at which have needed service work with a file to get overspray out of seattubes etc.
At work at the moment so no pics though…Posted 6 years ago
Giant was £65 Specialized was £55 and the Santa Cruz was £45 that included stripping the old stuff off and masking every thing out. All done in the last 2 years. We had another Reign done about 4 years ago which Abigale out grew. The finish was as good when we sold it as it was when it was donePosted 6 years agoI_AcheMember

Yes guys right about Planet wheels and the Pink limo’s. As for it shutting down, i’ve just give Adam a call and no he’s still in business.
You don’t happen to know if that’s Adam Wright do you by any chance? I’m sure its him that owns/owned it, I went to school with his sister.Posted 6 years agohunterstMember
