    How much for a paint job?

    I could have done a better job with building my 2008 Salty and now have lots of cable rub.

    Any idea what the big V charges to re-paint frames? Just the front triangle...
    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    Spectrum powder works is another option. They do some amazing work.

    Another idea...Wait till you need bearings replaced and send it in for both. It will need to be disassembled anyway.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.
