Why strip off perfectly good paint though?


Noone wants a snot green Zaskar :D ( But BB frames always seem to sell ? )

good for those winter days where a mate's nose drips and a trail of snot dangles in the wind before hitting your frame. Lots of salt and protein too if the cafes too far away.

BTW that reminds me .. who was the MTB downhiller who used to pride himself on chewing bogies for the flavour before spitting them out?

Seems like a lot of work just to sell it :? , you will probably be looking at a whole days graft to get it really nice, then you will need stickers for it.

Also being totaly honest i'd rather buy a Zaskar that's always been polished not one that's been painted then stripped.

What about rattle canning it black or something ?

Yep ... My thoughts last night to be honest, 100% sure it was a blue frame before too aswell, Can just see it ending up being a mess :? So I am going to put it together with some modern 9 speed kit I have, The discs and try again if no joy it will sit proud in the stable :D
