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)

Painting Frame in SoCal

Hello All,

I have a fixie with quite a few chips on the frame(mostly from bike racks, and other bikes)
I was wondering if anyone knows of a place where I can get my bike frame completely repainted in the SoCal region?

I kind of dont want to paint it myself. Im afraid ill do a bad job, and that it will chip easily. Id rather avoid the hassel and pay someone to do it professionally.

Thanks

Any auto body or custom motorcycle shop will be able to paint your frame. Do a Google search or look in the phone book and make some calls. If you want a really durable finish, get it powdercoated instead of painted.
