Hi,

Has anyone used any powder coaters for bike frames in Leicestershire, (or up to Derby or Nottignham) they would recommend?

I know some provide a better finish than others, some mask off the bottom bracket, bottle cage bosses etc, others don't.

Many thanks,

David

Hi

I used New Star of 219 Humberstone Lane, Thurmaston; 0116 269 6937.

Very pleased with results and they did mask all the threads and bosses on my olmo road frame. I think I payed £45 for frame & fork which included removal/sand blasting of old paint.

Regards

I should have provided an update, too. Sorry for that.

I used 'We do powder coating', at B3-B4, Troon Industrial Est, Humberstone Lane, Thurmaston LE4 9HA.

Cost was £35 for frame only (already stripped of paint), which included good masking of threads and chrome areas. Very good choice of colours and a prompt turnaround.

I'd use them again.

Best wishes,

David

I have used John Whiteman Engineering in Long Eaton, Notts a few times now....around £50 all in blasted and coated and the finishes these chaps achieve are amazing! trust me.
