    Who does/did Jericho's paint?

    Well, no more to ask, but I want to get the Glow in the Dark that some of their frames had, on my frame.

    In the Bay Area?!

    i'm not sure if they do the glow in the dark frames but my understanding is that sycip has done some Jericho frames, as well as many of the bay area builders. it used to be dauenhauer manf. but sycip bought their paint booth and even moved into some of the space.

    call jericho (josh) and see if he'll divulge his secret. or you could call sycip and see if they do his frames.

    This shouldn't be a big secret. Tiger Drylac, a very large supplier of powder, makes the glow powder. Any powder coater near you should be able to get and order it. It's a bit more expensive than the other stuff and the glow effect won't last very long, but it's cool anyway.

    Spectrum can certainly do it for you. Expect their price to run around $250 for it.

    So, after awhile, the glow goes away?!
    That's sad.
    It's still kind of a cool color though...

    It is Sycip, and

    they still had some powder when I talked to them about it right after the 24 At the Pueblo. They may be all out by now- Josh had bought the powder, and he wasn't planning on buying any more once it ran out.

    Klein had some cool glow in the dark options, dont know if they still do, but that paint probably wont last. I do love Kleins, but the quality isnt what it used to be. Then again, the paint on my 98 mantra was amazing. I got into crashes w/o so much as a scratch. But I dont know if they would paint a non klein frame. I dont see why not as long as you pay em. I seem to remember a company starting in a C that does glow paintjobs that are supposed to be awesome. I cant think of it, but Ill ask someone who I know knows for sure. I doubt that helps though.

    The people at Spectrum essentially talked me out of it because it ceases to glow after about a year. I had been looking for a powder that is reflective, like used on road signs. Haven't found one yet.

    Glow in the dark paint

    Not in powder but, this is what you want.

    Permalight photoluminescent paint

    http://www.americanpermalight.com/Pe...ts/Paints.html

    This stuff will last for years and glows for hours off just minutes of exposure to light.
    I bet its pricy.
    It wont be long before you see this stuff painted on stairway handrails in most new highrise buildings.

    I guess its neat to have a glow in the dark bike just because not a lot of people have it. But, don't you guys poach at night? Your ranger bait with a super shinny/reflective bike.

    Once I had a white bike... that sucked, for the reason you mention. After taking it on 2 or 3 night rides, I had it PC'd black.
    I keep thinking sage green with trail-dust accents would be a good color combo!
