"The powder coat on a rack WILL wear off anywhere that is a constant contact point. Pretty much all the racks that you can buy are powder coated to begin with because it's far more durable than any paint finish. I have Jandd Expedition racks and…"

"I have used Urban Powdercoating several times and am satisified with them. The price is similar and on the north side. If you want to see any of the work thay have done for me just ask. They have done 5 for me last year and have one right now as…"

"Duane, Powdercoating does not present an impediment to using decals. Obviously,  (the generic) you can simply apply your decals on top of the color coat, but you can also have a clear powder coat applied on top of the decals after they are…"

"This is not thread hijack, but I would like to point out that powdercoating is NOT painting. Powdercoat is a dry powder coating that is sprayed on and then baked in an oven at 400 degrees or so, making it flow out and harden. It is extremely durable…"

"not plural - here is some text from the CETMA site: About Cargo bikes and racks built by one guy in a small shop next to the beach. Venice, California. "

"Whenever I get my rack from CETMA, which might be never apparently, I plan on taking it here and getting it powder coated a light grey to match my Surly Rear Rack. "

"I don't think a shop has to handle a dissatisfied customer in public.  There's no winning in that kind of situation."

"I find it interesting that Heritage is posting here in response to the powder coat question but not addressing somebody making some pretty legit complaints about the service as far as bike maintenance goes. While it is entirely possible for a dying…"

"If you  have something specific you need to mask you might want to do the prep work. We sand blast the entire frame and fork before we apply the powder coat. Any special decals will be blasted but we try and keep the headbadge.  You can…"

"What's included in the $100? Does that include any of the prep work like masking threads and striping old paint, or do you hand them a bare metal frame ready to do down the paint line?"

"The $80 included the rim, broken spoke replacement, and labor. It was a single-walled rim, but the mechanic never told me that when he installed it. "

"No, I don't think it was an anomaly. If you actually read the reviews, a great deal of them are just rating the coffee shop and not the bike service. I highly doubt that the owner personally insulting me (he Yelp messaged me claiming I had no…"
