• Got my Vagabond back this week, Steve has painted it and added eyelets. Did an excellent job, would really recommend, it a very crisp finish.

  • Does he strip the original paint off too?

  • media blasted, you can see some of the sand on the BB that fell out as I carried it outside.

  • Ideal, thanks.

  • The quality of that powder coat is superb. Good colour as well.

  • Yeah, Steve really knows his stuff, he is well worth the money. I'm very pleased with the colour its RAL 5008 matte, interestingly Steve said that matte will always give you a more crips clean finnish. Apparently for gloss they do a matte cloat in the colour and then do a gloss clear coat on top.

  • Ahh! Like you say its the matt that makes it look so crisp. I have a frame that needs doing so will get in touch with him.

  • For anyone wondering about cost:

    Aurum is very good value given the quality

  • Blimey, thats very reasonable!

  • looks for things to powder coat

  • Looks great value.

    @spotter can those bosses be used for a rack or just for cages?

  • both or either.

  • Do they only do bosses or would they also be able to add a derailleur hanger?

  • Best to ask

  • Never posted this I think, Aurum service was faultless and they managed to mask all the chrome on the frame, powder coat, decals and lacquer. It's pretty flawless, and I had no idea you could even mask complex shapes like lugs for powder coating.

  • Do you have a before pic? That work looks stunning and I'm curious as to the degree of transformation from old to new as the finish of that looks perfect

  • Yeah of course, I have a specific folder on my laptop for all my bike photos. Frame as it came to me, and after a couple years use. The cromovelato was getting quite flaky, and the decals were all peeling, so needed a refresh.

  • Really nice job.

    Now I'm thinking of the Thorn in the other room and how it could do with a transformation like that.

  • Bike looks great!
    Still haven't sorted the rack angle and fenders though...

  • Lol, and yet life goes on!

  • I’ve wanted to put some VO chrome hammered guards on for years but have never got round to it.

  • It’s a problem when stuff outlasts it’s aesthetic value.
    Function on, dude.

  • Here are a few images of a 853 frame I got Aurum to media blast and clear powerder coat

  • Also, my Gensis 29er and Salsa x Hulsory forks
