yah but at the same time if you are not willing to pay for the powder coat then you won't get it because it's not in your price range...
looking at Spectrum Powderworks... the prices I put up in the poll seem to be about the same that they would charge... even before knowing about the prices that they charge...
Mind you they give you the tip to see if you can ask for a bike box from a bike store to save you 30$ on a box... yeah certain places if you don't know where to look will sell you a specific bike box for 30$.
Also, in the poll, I did not specify anything about 1 coat 2 coats, etc... Just from asking around locally a few bike shops told me that if I can do a simple 1 color for 75$ I would be busier than I could think...
I find that hard to believe because after you have hit a certain market, plus have the rent and bills to pay 75$ a frame seems super cheap... custom paint jobs w/special treatment & powdercoating I believe should be in around 225$ and up... mind you not a lot of people would pay that because let's face it... people are cheap.
that said... I'm just trying to be realistic in research
