    chipped paint at lock nut and seat post

    Any suggestions on how to prevent more chipped paint at the rr wheel lock nut on my rattle-canned frame? (Taking all the paint off is not an option, I want to keep the paint on!)

    ffff

    I spend all that time giving a hoot when I spray it and within a few days of working on it I mess up the paint. Oh, I care. I care deeply.

    Okay, seriously.
    Why do you care about the paint on the drop out?

    on the INSIDE of the dropout, even...

    did you strip the old paint before you rattle-canned it? apply primer? apply a clearcoat?

    i usually scrape the paint off the whole length of the dropout where the axle nuts are going to go, even on brand spanking new bikes, the paint A. chips, and B. can cause the rear wheel to slip. on my roadie, i scraped the paint to find that the dropouts are polished stainless steel underneath, which is even worse. ...i still haven't gotten around to roughing it up, so i run my QRs super tight.

    get some of that heavy duty truck bed ****, mask and spray just the dropouts. it's harder than rattlecan so it won't chip, plus it will give your nuts something to grip to

    in a manner of speaking

    worst thread ever.

    track dropouts are usually chromed or stainless for a reason.

    live with it.

    Everyone collects something. I had a roommate in college that collected venereal diseases. Stephen Hawking collects dust. And I collect Bikes

    Cool:


    Much, much cooler:
