Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

i don't think dupont makes powercoat, but i'm not sure. check out tigerdrylac and cardinal. those are two powdercoat paint companies with great product and good sites...

Pantone won't work I asked a couple places and pantone doesn't work for some reason. My Thylacine was done using PPG Powdercoating via Spectrum and I found the color by searching a bunch of different custom shops. I've still got the Co-motion color charts which I can send you.

good luck,
jeff

apparently colorlife in LI use dupont powdercoats. i got that information from this forum.

if simply picking a pantone were an option that would be great, but i don't believe it is so.

thanks stickerguy. i guess i really wanted to know what kind of finish options there were other than basic gloss. and are a wide range of colors offered?

4 color process printing (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) can nail most colors but nowhere near all of them You'll never get a good orange, red, green, silver, etc, by mixing the CMYK no matter what your dot pitch is.

so in quick english,
Pantone = the color of the pie in the magazine

Nice! What's that for? Single color? With or without bead blasting and / or clearcoat? Got a website or an address for them?

Thanks!

$60 bucks is pretty good, where is this place? I'm just as curious as brokenrobot, does that include blasting and clearcoat?
