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)

Portland OR powder coating/liquid question

Hi! This Surly here, is this powder or liquid coating? I have a feeling it's liquid but I've heard liquid is more prone to chipping and peeling.

Is there any way powder coating can have a liquid, glossy look?

Any good recommendations for painters in the Portland OR area?

Thanks!!!!

I believe powder coating is more durable than liquid coating, simply because I've read that liquid is more prone to chipping, much like you've read.

I don't live in OR, so sadly I can't recommend any painters :/

Powder coat.... more glossy through application of clear coat of polyurethane.... perhaps extra shininess of paint job through waxing and buffing....


~Anyone know a good place for a powdercoating in the bay area?
