- Triple-S Powder coating, anyone used them?
I have used them and they are very good. Some would say expensive but you get what you pay for.
Portlyone has a Heckler in Candy Blue from them and 1 year on, peaks riding every weekend and a trip to Morzine and it still looks great.
Another riding buddy has just had his Cove G-Spot done in Candy red and again, it looks great.Posted 6 years ago
That’s great feedback guys, thanks.
The frame (steel duster) has got some chainsuck damage to the metal as well as what you might describe as a “pointy dent” high on one seatstay. Nothing serious, but I thought I might get them repaired/minimised at the same time, if possible. The reason I noticed triple-S was that they say they can do minor frame repairs too (often free of charge).
I’ve not had stuff powdercoated before – what would most places do: just coat over the damage? Or does the “prep” involve some sort of smoothing/making-good of any gubbed areas?
Was going to give them a call tomorrow – but wondered what the collective’s thoughts werePosted 6 years ago
Yep, ask them. They also mask off all threads, bearing surfaces etc. really know their stuff from years of motorbike and classic car stuff from what I’ve read / he told me.
The finish was dead smooth – possibly better than Santa Cruz’s original effort. Its certainly stayed glossy for much longer.
Been toying with the idea of taking it back and getting it done in neon yellow!Posted 6 years agofatboyjonMember
Or, in the interests of karma, what goes around comes around, or one good turn deserving another, or whatever you want to call it…

triple s candy blue.Posted 6 years ago
I called them today for a chat – seems like a nice fella.
Him: “what colour are you after?”
Me: “Sort of a bright blue, a bit like the banner on your website”
Him: “oh dear, thats candy blue – the most expensive option: £85”
Non-metallics are £50 apparently, which seems pretty good value from somebody who seems to be coming with some solid recomendations.Posted 6 years agochestrockwellMember
I got my old orange clockwork powdered grey by triple-s a year or two ago and have to say they were excellent. Recommended to a few others and they all have glowing reports also. My frame was about £58 inc vat. That included stripping the old paint and all the prep. You get what you pay for and all that.Posted 6 years ago
