Bike gets paint

After 10 years and 20,000 miles, the bike had some rust spots and lots of scratches from where I’d laid it down a few times.  My first inclination was to sand the areas and primer/paint them myself.  But the more I got into it, the more convinced I became that I wouldn’t be able to do a good job and the result would look terrible.

I disassembled as much as I could, paid the bike shop $20 to do what I couldn’t (several things require the use of some very expensive tools), and took the frame to Accent Powder Coating.  Then back to the bike shop for reassembly.  For less than $500, I have what is essentially a new bicycle.

Can’t wait to go for a ride.  You can click on the picture below for the full-size image.
