Does anyone know a good place in Cambridgeshire to get my frame powder coated? I could just take it down to armourtex but it seems a bit of a trek...
Morley Bros in Milton do powdercoating. Haven't used them myself but have heard they can be a bit slow...
I inquired at Teversham Engineering and they would you a sand blast and clearcoat for £60, seems like a very professional setup however I never actually got it done!
took mine to morley brothers and they blasted and painted for £50
been out in all the rain and plastered it with grit and it seems to clean up ok
but can they do it in a week? what was the turnaround on your frame?
from memory it wasn't very long at all - think i took it in on a monday and collected it on the thursday.
i had removed most of the paint myself though
I've had good results from Armourtex in Hackney. It's where the majority of London folk seem to go to get their bikes done as well as 14 Bike Co. It's obviously not in Cambridge but I work in London once or twice a week so drop frames off on my way in.
I forgot the important bits – turnaround is 3 days, £45 for flat colour, £60 colour and lacquer.
I used them and can vouch for the quality of the finish and value for money but if you want decals then look elsewhere!
Old thread, but just had a frame done for my daughter in Sawston. Company is called powder plus and just got the frame back and it looks good
