    Spectrum Powder Works

    Have any of you had your bike painted by Spectrum? I just sent my Sycip off to them. From what I see on their website ( http://www.spectrumpowderworks.com ) they are the place to send bicycles to have a custom paint job. If you have any pictures of your bike that has been painted by Spectrum I would greatly appreciate if you would post them and give any feedback on the company. Thanks N.

    Spectrumpowder works painted my Ionic JR. It is painted their British Racing green. I do not have any complaints. Seems to hold up quite well also.

    these paint jobs cost about $300 or more. my ibis, with a two color powdercoat and airbrushed flames was about $330 or so.

    cheers!

    Thanks for the links. All of the bikes are beautiful. I really like the look of the subtle flames. It looks very elegant. All of those bikes are just out of control nice. I can only hope that mine will come out like those. Thanks Again, N.

    Two of them

    >>Have any of you had your bike painted by Spectrum? <<

    Yep. My Anvil Chisel (sorry, it's a road bike...) is powdercoated a deep purple on the front fading to black at the back, with ghosted gray flames and lettering. No idea how they do it, but their work is simply amazing. See here, and click on the Anvil Chisel photo album to see a couple shots of it on display in the Anvil booth at Interbike a couple years ago:

    It's subtle, and really pops in direct sunlight. My Anvil Crosscheck (cyclocross) has a single color powdercoat that's held up admirably to four cyclocross racing seasons.

    No personal experience, but I've heard that you should be very clear about what you want. I've heard a couple stories of people who didn't get quite what they had ordered and that Spectrum was not very willing to correct it in any way. For what it's worth... S

    My roadie has a Spectrum job on it. Flawless "bass boat blue metallic" I think it is.

    Frame was painted before I bought it. Vail Cycle Works.

    turner burner

    I thought they did a nice job with my Burner. School bus yellow powdercoat with custom decals under a clear coat. I'll probably use them again when my Dragon or Explosif frames need it.

    Spectrum painted my DEAN (Ionic) Steelhead frame a BEAUTIFUL matte black. The bike is being built as I type. Once completed I'll post a pic.

    With Spectrum doing the work, your frame is in good hands!!!!!

    Best,
