    Anyone used Spray.Bike products?

    Title says it all. Seems like quality stuff, but I'm curious if it's worth the premium compared to something like Krylon Fusion. I have no plans to do any kind of crazy multi-colored or stenciled design.

    Yep, I ordered up a couple of cans to paint my steel gravel frame. The stuff works extremely well. Just follow the directions and be sure to use it within the recommended temperature and humidity. It goes on like powder then has to cure for 24 hours or so and the finish comes out to be very even and durable. Iíve been riding the frame for about 6 months and itís held up perfectly.

    Did you do the wax finish? I'm leaning against it given the cost of this stuff with shipping. How did the color line up with how it looked on the website?

    All I did was 2 coats of one color. No primer, no finish. The color matched the website perfectly. Iíve overall been impressed impressed with it.

    Can't trust it. Paint is like chemicals and science and shit. "artisan coatings" is not a thing.

    Whoa, I managed to bring kidwoo out of the woodwork! In all fairness, there does appear to be some real serious enginerding behind the product and the hipster squids have just been given free reign on the marketing.

    Ordered two cans of "Limehouse." Some of the reviews I found for Krylon Fusion reported fading, and they didn't really have any colors I was wild about in a matte finish.

    Hm, so if I wanted to use it as touch-up paint for a matte black steel frame, would I just buy a can of black and try to fade it in? Maybe spray it on a sponge first?
    I figure with a steel frame, a sharpie might not be adequate protection.
    No longer stuck.

    That's probably a very, very hard no with this stuff. I'd try the fade-in, or mask around the area you need to touch up. Fancy paint like this seems like way overkill for a minor touch-up job, though. Just go to a hardware store and get a can of matte black Rustoleum.

    If it doesn't work as paint, that sounds like some good shaved ice.
