    Hi,
    Does anyone out there know of any professional Custom bicycle painters anywhere in Sydney? I want to get my carbon frame, which has a number of scratches on it, repainted. I don't really care about spending decent money, as long as it is an excellent job.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    cheers

    Would be great to see this become the next big thing in cycling!!!

    Have dreams of opening up a little shop along beach road somewhere with a spray booth and long brushes for hand-done pinstripes with albums upon albums for people to leaf thru to choose their new look.

    Bit like tattooing for your bike
    (speaking of tattoos, watch this space...)

    Taht tandem frame reminds me of my kids' ceiling/s

    Stuck these little glo-in-the-dark stars and moons all over it

    What's with the 2nd bike (cyclocross?). Just how do you apply the brakes or change the gears?
    Or is it a track bike in disguise...

    With no chain I'm guessing it's mid-build...

    My mate has a seriously awesome paintjob on his Kennedy. It's a chameleon paint that moves around Orange/Gold/Yellow. Pity about the dodgy Kennedy stickers all over it. I'll see if he has a pic of it...

    I have heard more compalints about them and their poor build and fit than anything else out there (barring HARO!)

    Looks like a road frame being crossified. I think purpose built cyclocross bikes would have cantis
    mostly, maybe discs even?

    And the tyres look like a _very_ close fit.

    I had my bike done by Star Enamellers at Bankstown. Just a one colour job though. If they can't do
    what you want I'm sure they'll point you in the right direction.

    Generally canti's yeah. As far as I know, the UCI just banned the use of disc brakes in cyclocross events..
