Ok I have been thinking about painting my xlt this upcoming winter and I want to know will it void the warrenty? it is a ***** to get the paint off? and any suggestions on what color I should do? I have the 03 1.0 which is that primer gray/black color. My two choices are a dark metalic gray with some back or silver or just plain white. I have always loved white bikes.
as far as I know, Jamis bikes are annodized, not sure about the 03's but the 05's are. so you would need a BIG tub and i think Drano crystals or somehting like that to strip the anno. i saw many of these types of threads on paintball forums.
After you figure out the anodizing issue, I'd suggest getting the frame powdercoated. I had my C-dale road bike soda blasted & powdercoated in a gold metallic and it turned out fantastic. Supposedly, powdercoating is tougher than paint so on a mountainbike you might be happier in the long run.
