    RFX is back from the powder coater

    The faithful RFX was rewarded with a PC this winter. Built it back up and now I'm left with a dilemma.
    Do I leave it nekkid or apply the not so understated Turner decal? Help me decide!RFX is back from the powder coater-005.jpgRFX is back from the powder coater-006.jpg

    I like the decal, but who am I?

    On an added note, reassembling the bike was a PIA. The powdercoater assured me that they had done bike frames before. The frame came back with paint in the headtube, seat tube, paint on the pivots and the zerks painted over. Should have used the Turner service but I wanted to stay local in Canada.

    I like the black decal idea
    Too fat for XC, and not skilled enough for FR

    It was primitive and ugly. Various files and light sandpaper to buff out. Zerks still work. HS, pivot and ST faces seem smoth and functional.

    I'm gonna go with the black decal. It was the unmentioned third choice. Just wanted to hear someone else say it.

    obviously not. Hopefully you received a discounted gesture due to this. Oh and white decal.
