Let us fellow Kona owners know how the powdercoating turns out.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
They have a pretty decent color selection. $68 for a chem strip and the coating.8-10 days

karate monkey. its a little stiffer than the spinner i had on the specialized, but doesn't flex and bob like the marzocchi did.

i am running a marzocchi on the supercaliber though.

strangely enough, the fork seems stiffer on the dambala than it did on the buzz bomb.

do you need a bike to ride while the kona is getting powdercoated? you might want to borrow the liquid and have a little full squishy goodness. heck, i never ride it. :rolleyes:

Looks nice, question time.

Did you send the frame in yourself, or did you send it through a shop?
Color choices?
Turn around looks like it was ~2 weeks, right?

dropped it off myself.
i thought their color selection was pretty good, @ least 60 colors.
it was 11 bidness days.
gonna get yers done?
I'd suggest the dip rather than media blasting cuz the walls are so thin.

OK, that paint job looks sweet.

Here's a new question to throw into the mix - does anyone know of a local place where one could get unnecessary bits removed from a frame (canti-mounts, gear cable guides) before sending it in to be powdercoated??
I can do it. You can do it. Your Uncle Ed can do it too. DirDir can't and won't do it.

now would be an ideal time time to powdercoat the 700cc monstrosity but only if dhf agress to matching paint schemes and crime-fighter capes. tights are optional.
ys must do all the work. i will drink beer and supervise.

I will do all the work for everybody if you include my big wheel in the mix as well. Gotta be gloss black though. You will drink scotch and scratch your ass.

I don't know what you fellas are doing over there, but it sounds an awful lot like schenanigans. All I want is all of the extra crap off of my frame that I didn't want in the first place...

And what makes YS qualified to remove the pieces? It has to be more complicated than just using a dremel...I think :confused:
I just told you that you can do it. I have no more of a moronic qualification than you do.
