    New question here. Getting a Bike Painted

    Does anyone know of a good shop in the Bay Area that paints bike frames?

    Thanks!

    I don't know where it is but Joseph-Da-Trog knows a shop that he is very happy with that will powder coat frames and forks for I think around $75. Joseph is in Paterson so his shop may not be in the Bay Area.

    Paging Doctor Deltron

    Dr. Deltron was recommended to me locally here for a bike a number of years ago. I can't recall where he is now. Definitely worth locating him.

    I reallllllllllly like that Parlee frame in the gallery.

    I used this place in Santa Clara to get a frame powdercoated. Bulletproof job, but you need to mask everything well or, like me, you'll be whittling your BB with a utility knife. $75 for frame and rigid fork.

    Yeah! the shop is way out here in Modesto off of Hwy 99. They have done 5 frames for me over the years. They do every thing for me blast, mask and clear if I want it. When I pick up a frame it ready to be put togeather. They do a good job.

    Progressive Powder Coacting.

    Try Maas Brothers

    I think there are actually 2 of them. Maas Brothers in Livermore (Vasco Road) and Maas Tech in Hayward. They handle the powdercoating for a number of local framebuilders (Steelman and a few others I don't recall).

    Maas Brothers powdercoated a DH frame for me a few years ago and did a really top-notch job. They masked off all the threaded and pivot areas as well as color matching the frame to my Boxxer fork. A local shop recommended them as well as warning me about specifically going to someone who has some expertise with aluminum bike frames to make sure they do not over-bake the frame.

    As I understand it, Dad owns/runs the Hayward shop. The two Maas Brothers (sons) run the Livermore shop. I've used the Maas Brothers shop in Livermore to powder coat two frames. Both turned out nice. They bead blasted 'em first. Turn around was about a week to ten days. Single stage powder (basic colors) ran $100 and a two stage process (metal flake) ran $150.00 (bring cash for p/u -- no personal checks or credit cards).

    I've also been told that it is important to have someone familiar with bike frames do the work -- I've heard stories of shops blasting holes through the thin wall tubing.

    I've seen stacks of Ventana frames in there as well as Sycip and Kelly frames -- back before they did there own powder coating. That was encouragement enough for me.

    Have fun!

    They just did a frame for me

    CX frame...$75 stripped and painted. Frame one color and the fork another. Then when i tried to thread a BB cup into the BB shell i noticed the frame had dropped on the BB shell bending it inward.

    Im NOT saying it was them but NOT ruling it out either...Im just saying learn from my misfortune..check your frame..

    I was at Dr Deltron's house yesterday for his kids birthday party. He had 6 or 7 frames in various stages. Awesome work.
