Dropped off at the powder coaters in Castleford today, had to make a snap decision on what colour but its what I wanted ages ago.... It had to go with the decals.... more details next week!

Just picked up my DMR from LSN.

Frankly I am astonished at the finish. It's excellent. Even, thin (not inch thick like some powder), glossy. Everything masked off properly with no direction needed.

I really wanted to go for a standard colour, either the white or dark blue. But I couldn't bring myself to have it done white, I hate white bikes, and all the dark blues available didn't really match the NOS decals I have. I've always liked baby blue as a frame colour and I think it'll look excellent built up with silver and anodised blue parts.

I've just got the DMR wonder cups, bash guard and maybe a couple of bolts, that's all. Hopefully everything else will be silver.
