So I brought a second hand mondraker dune frame from pink bike last week was uming an aring weather to get it wrapped as the condition wasn’t the greatest after getting prices etc decided that it wasn’t for me if I damage it and had to remove then the frame would look crap as the wrapper wanted to sand the frame on damaged areas after a test wrap we discovered that the writing on frame would also need sanding back so I had to have a rethink then it came to me my mate jason sprays cars would he do it short story No but he recommended a guy Martin who works for vehicle solutions in Cheltenham that do powder coating give him a call so I did had chat took bike in Friday morning he was happy with what I took him chose colour metallic gun metal grey left it with him 330 same day got a phone call all done WoW went and picked it up.
