I collected my Pugsley frame & fork from the powder coater today. They did a nice job and carefully protected the threads in the frame so I don’t have to spend hours cleaning them out. I’d definitely use them [Victoria Powder Coating] when my LHT needs refinishing.
I’ve never had a bright green bike and trying to take photos of dark bikes in the rain forest is a challenge so I went with a colour that would pop nicely on the trail. Considering the battleship grey colour that my Pugsley started life with this is a a huge departure for her. When/if I buildup a new set of wheels for my Pugsley I’ll get the rims powder coated to match. I was too lazy to even contemplate unlacing the existing wheels just to do that!
I will of course now have to buy green fun fur and EL-wire to decorate her for Burning Man this year…=-)
My next moves are:
- spray inside of frame with frame saver to rustproof it
- walk down to my LBS and get the headset reinstalled
