Right I have stripped my kx down for a re build and going to get the frame repainted. Question is whats best paintong or powder coating? I was thinking of using some hammerite through my paint gun as the finish doesnt have to be perfect.

Does anyone know of anywhere that could powercoat the frame local to cambridge?

Morley Bros milton are very good at what they do.

If it were me I would enquire how much epoxy coating will cost,
it has a very similar finish but it is flexible and doesn't chip like powder coat does,
ideal on a crosser.

Worth the extra few quid.

For the time it takes me to strip the bike down its easy enough to paint it every so often.
