So I'm picking up one of the few remaining Volume Sledgehammer's from my LBS. The only color they could get is the blue with white parts.
What I want to do is have all the parts that are white (wheels, hubs, stem, handlebar, cranks, powder coated a neon yellow/highlighter yellow. But I started to think, should I even bother spending the money to have them powder coated If I may end up replacing them down the line? Would the parts even need to be replaced? Are the stock components decent for a while? I really don't know what the cost would be to change things like cranks, stems, handlebars, hubs and wheels either. Thats going to be a major factor in my decision. So what is everyone's thoughts? Should I take the time and money to dissasemble the bike now, and have it powdercoated (cost-approx $150) OR gradually accumulate nicer components then have them powdercoated (cost-not sure)
