    resprayed stiffee's, good idea?

    spied a frame i half like the look of, but its been re-sprayed. the owner tells me its been sand blasted, painted, cured in an oven then left to cool (all done by some professional enamellers up north apparently).

    question is, am i taking a bit of a risk if i buy this frame? the stiffee has a reputation for being strong as you like, but i wonder if the sand blasting and curing might have affected the strength of the aluminium?

    any ideas?

    cheers

    If the enamellers have been dealing with bikes before I'm sur ethey would know what they're doing. If they've only done tea pots and such then you might ask a few questions but I would think it's pretty safe to say it'll be ok
