Who has had a PC done @ Class Act?
I have seen several bikes done by Class Act here in PDX and I was wondering what ya'll think. I think I would like to get my bike powdercoated there and my main concern is sealing my frame up so that it is as rust proof as possible. I was in their shop yesterday and I was told they sand blast to prep the frame, but it sounds like they don't PC necessarily immediately afterwards which I hear would be ideal for rust prevention. I never asked whether they prime the frame after sand blast which would help with rust prevention... So has anyone had problems with rust on your frames? Lastly, my bike (steel frame) has been outdoors a lot the past five years and has been somewhat neglected (rarely have I wiped my bike down after rides and sometimes I store it outdoors here in PDX, I now know better), just a few patches of surface rust, but I am concerned that when I brake the bike down I'll find rust inside the frame. Should I flush the inside of the frame with phosphoric acid and seal it with frame saver before I bring it in if I want to be safest? A couple closely closely related questions, I have done a lot of searching already on the forum, but I would like to hear more about Class Act specifically without having to grill the guys at the shop about this stuff, especially because I don't really know what I am talking about. Thanks in advance for the help, wkf
