    Finish tough or pretty?

    Okay so I will be placing the order for my Inbred frame and fork tomorrow. I was not thrilled with it being white but i can deal with that since i'm an ex automotive painter.
    I had a random thought after i woke up this morning. Has anyone on here every RhinoLined/Linex/rockguarded a bike? I can get it done for almost nothing and was just pondering the pros and cons. Let me know what ya'll think or know.

    Pro - you can throw it over a cliff and it might bounce

    If you need a rhino lined bike frame, then perhaps you should just stay home and be safe...

    IF you do end up rhino lining the frame, for all of us here at mtbr...please...rhino line the entire bike!!

Another benefit is that I can touch it up with a brush and no one will ever know.
    What is 8 ounces? It's only 227 grams. You could strap on a couple of additional water bottles and a second tool kit. Maybe add a lava lamp.

    Flush the fashion...do what you want. It might weigh a little more, but it'll be the only one.

    A lava lamp would be cool...

    Wow ... I wasn't thrilled with the color choices when I bought my Highball Alum SS and went with white, with a white Niner fork.

    White is DEFINITELY not my favorite, but everybody else seems to tghink it looks great.

    Anyway, the last thing I would do to my bike would be to coat it in that stuff.

    I do LOVE the black, though...
