Who would you recommend and what would be the going rate for a frame & forks?

I was thinking of getting a frame & forks done for my wife, so ideally a solid block girly colour would be the order of the day.

Would I need to do any prepping or should I expect the coaters to strip and prepare everything?

Thanks!

Also have a look at Triple S in Bingley. Bit more expensive then LSN but the finish is always superb and they do everything for you.

+1 For Triple-S, have used them on many occasions and the work is always superb.

Another vote from me for LSN,
they made a great job of my frame after a company in the same area made a c@ck of it.

I've had frames done at both LSN and Triple S and if I was having another frame done I'd pay the higher cost to use Triple S again.
