Recommend a frame respray service?

by stewieatb   July 26, 2012  

Hey chaps.

I have a 20-year-old steel framed bike that I'd like a frame repaint on. I tried to do it myself last year but a year's abuse as a town bike in Oxford (including being locked up with a bare galv steel chain) has taken a lot of the spray paint off again. Can anyone recommend a service to shotblast and powdercoat the frame?

Cheers
Stewie

Argos in Bristol will do it - re-do the original decals too.

Just don't use Colour Tech whatever you do! Unless you like waiting 4 months, that is.
