    frame fill up

    Well, I finally got all the derailluer cable bosses/hangers, whatever thery're called removed. Now I've got a few little gouges I want to fill up before repainting. My question to all of you, what sort of compound do you think would work best? Body filler, JB weld, epoxy? I have a chromo frame.

    Oh and if anyone is reading this and thinking about removing their cable hangers. Don't do it! It's a real pain in the ass and ( I think ) not worth it. Live and learn.

    sandable epoxy

    bondo would prob work ok for those small spots, but I've found a 2 part epoxy (that is sandable) works best, you'll never have to worry about it again. I forget if JB weld is sandable.

    Hope you like the sano look of the bike when it's done! post some pics.

    hasta,

    The other reason not to do it is those gouges are stress risers and the tubes may fail at that point.

    Good luck
