    I like a good paintjob, the first Misc one looks sweet.

    I was actually going to get mine painted Harlequin, the one that changes colour. Then the marble effect, then i decided i was only gonna fuck it all up anyway, so scrapped it.

    Do you think powder coating affects the integrity of the frame? I know they bake it in an oven, you think the heat has any effects on the frame, either making it weaker or possibly even warping it??

    they bake it at relatively low heat i think? it would be easy to find out on teh intrawebz... definately not hot enough to arse your metal.

    edit: depending on variables, powder coating is done at 160-210 degrees celsius...

    ps- 410 degrees fahrenheit... so not even enough heat to burn paper..oh noes, ray bradburry.

    it doesn't affect the strength of the frame at all. I've powder coated my old levelboss frame three times, first black, then white and black again :) no problems at all.

    The white one does look nice :)

    So does the 4th misc and 2nd red. Awesome P.S skills Cryo, they all look so real, haha. Whip up some of your famous pimp stickers, and Chris will be set. :bigthumb:

    I personally want all my bikes to look like the color of male excrement after having too many blue raspberry slurpees.
