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)

Spraypainting Pedals???

I just got some brand new Primo pedals for my fix but i'm not diggin the color. They're all white pedals!!! I want to spray paint em' black but I'm wondering how well the paint would hold up if I just spray painted them straight up. I need some advice... Thanks yall

primo's are plastics right? depends how well of a paint job you want. pedals will get scrapped up either way. you can either spray them straight up or take your time and rough the surface with like a 600 grit sand paper and then spray it.

if they are plastic you could try that Krylon Fusion paint for plastic- it works pretty well. I've painted metal pedals with hi-temp engine paint, and it's held up only OK- and that was with pretty good prep. I'm of the opinion that pedals shouldn't look to good though- I mean, you put your feet on them right?

Tar for color and grippiness.
