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)

Please Help: powdercoating and or anodizing in the new york area

Hey Guys,

I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction for a quality and hopefully affordable powdercoat guy in the New York City area. Also if anyone knew of anybody doing anodizing for a decent price in New York or at the very least someone who accepts shipped parts to be anodized. Thanks for the help.

I've heard about people going through Continuum Cycles on Avenue B in the East Village, however I'm pretty sure they ship out the frame/part to a powdercoating shop elsewhere.

there was a thread about powder coating in nyc a while ago. I'm lazy to search for it. Should come up in the search function.

I appreciate the feedback. I am not on this forum much these days and the search function hasn't been as helpful to me. Do you happen to have a link Ichitz? Thanks.

hmm.. u're right. I can't find it either. This new forum's search function really sucks. And I don't have the links to any shops, unfortunately. I didn't save it. Sorry man. Hopefully someone will come along and put up some links.

I would also like to know a good anodizer. You could always call jeff (or go by the shop) at continuum and ask who he goes through. I asked him once and he was sort of vague ( I think he was looking for a new one). I know a great powdercoater in savannah GA that I ship my stuff to. This is for a specific application though and may not be worth the effort. I also know a cheap good PC-er in RI if you have any reason for going there.

I would forget about the paint job and buy a couple of rolls of black electrical tape if you're locking your bike on the street. But I do have a friend who works at Bicycle Habitat. I'll ask her if she has a resource for paint and get back to you.

Ask Jeff at Continuum about painting too. He's got a guy for that too.

Yea, I called continuum, but the guy who answered said he didn't know anyone local, but he did refer me to someone at ny velo(carlos i think). Thanks for all of the feedback on the thread. I thought this would have been way easier than it ended up being.
