I don't need any painting tips. But I decided recently not to get new bike, and instead, get a frame and build one up. Heres what I got. I got a late 90s Gary Fisher race frame, for $10 at a garage sale. It was black, but the clearcoat had worn off. So I stripped it. I filled the dents in he frame with some bondo and its ready to the primered and painted. Heres a Question, whats a good fork, and wheelset with 3/8" axles.
