    Do they do custom work also, or is it one color only?

    No experience with them, but I just got a quote from Glendale Powder Coat yesterday, $65 to sandblast and powder coat a frame. Much cheaper than anyone else I've contacted (most are $85 just for the powder coat).

    Powdercoating is a good option

    I rebuilt an old truck and used Vyne Powdercoating for a lot of stuff. They are in Mesa at roughly Broadway and 101. They have hundreds of colors to choose from. Although I never saw any bicycles in their shop, I did see lots of motorcycle frames. That's a big chunk of their business. Like BEETROOT said, suggest paying them to sandblast prep. Should work well for road bike, but I think too brittle for MTB. I know people powdercoat MTB's but it just seems to me you are just asking for chips in the paint.

    Here's a pic of my rolling chassis. Stuff that I powdercoated that you can see in this photo include frame and crossbraces, valve covers, gas tank, dif plates, front shock mounts, coil springs. All this done at Vyne, they're great.

    Good luck.

    Nice minimalist approach, but it looks like that seat would get a bit warm.

    You're right, it darn near scorched my bottom side. That's why I dropped on a likewise minimalist body, still no seats though! Using "The Force" to shift, steer, and throttle.
