  • No differ

    Wasn't at all noticable IRL

  • cool thank you.

  • Got another frame done by Aurum, this time a Brand-X hardtail frame for my gf. RAL4011 gloss.

    Build started...

  • Anybody used Maldon Shot Blasting and Powder Coating? They seem to do quite an extensive range of colours and finishes.

  • Yes, but not for a bike - they are currently doing something for me but it's not finished so I can't comment definitively. Good communication though and loads of colours.

    two BMX frames hanging on the wall that looked good on a superficial glance and I was shown two downhill frames that also looked good from 2m away

  • i used them for a couple of old steel frames, Initially i wanted wet paint in original pearl white but was convinced to have white powder coating with a sparkly lacquer. It came back a bit heavily coated, lots of work to get the threads chased and silly things like brake nuts or ferrules into guides. The other had bubbling underneath the stay but i didnt notice it at the time as i peeked into the bubble wrap and the frame wasnt built up straight away but it was a little disappointing once discovered. Some of the fitment issues are things you might get with any powdercoating and i expected it to a degree but had to cut my way in in a few places like the seat collar slot which was bridged with coating on both frames.

  • Cheers both. Maybe I won't use them if the detail isn't great.

  • Is it daft to get a rack powder coated? It’s a tubus tara in black… don’t know how the colour has been applied originally, not yet received it… 🤷♂️

  • not really, it will come off like normal paint though with use, unless you do something like this

  • I got a Tubus Fly nickel plated…
    Removing the existing powder coat will be a big job.

  • Cool cool, and @withered_preacher cheers, what does it look like nickel plated?

    Was thinking of asking Aurum to add some mid fork mounts and then powder coat fork/stem and rack RAL 9007 matte to match a ti frame… 🤷♂️

  • I’ll post a pic later, off to work now.

  • There you go, juxtaposed with alu and chrome.

  • Just got my steamroller back from Steve at Aurum yesterday and I'm absolutely loving it.
    He also added braze on cable guides under the TT.

    How much did this cost you?

    I have a Pre Cursa i'm building as present for mate and need it stripped and painted similar to this, greenish blue / purple, or similar to my Omnium's "Blurple"

  • Also what's best way to contact Aurum? Is there direct way, email/ phone? Seen it mentioned here that a lot of people have gone down to or called Clever Mike bike shop, is that still the way?

    Cheers everyone.

  • I had no luck calling and emailing steve but David at Clever Mike is really responsive.

  • woah that nickel-plated rack! amaze

  • It’s nice, I think I need to straighten it out a bit though, doesn’t sit quite right mounted on a frame. Don’t have a current project in mind, so no rush.

  • I've given up trying to get in touch, I just let Dave at clever Mike do it, Steve seems to look out for his emails so you get a quick response.

    I've just dropped @Simba 's new frame of at CM. I print out a bit of paper with the colour/RAL code and finish type (gloss, matte etc) and Staple it round the TT just to save everyone some effort

  • The powder coat itself cost £126 + 20% VAT.
    The colour is Iridescence Black Fire from - https://www.powderfx.co.uk/product/iride­scence-black-fire/

  • Amazing, thanks mate 🙏

  • Is that aluminium? I didnt know Steve did that!

  • Yep, alu! It's the 2nd alu frame he's sprayed for me.

    Pic fully built:

  • What was the turn around time if you don’t mind me asking?
