The Fixie Build Part 2

Painting the fork

This post is part of a series,  see part number two here, and three here.

Got some more work done on the fixie this weekend. Started out by taking it all apart, then stripping the paint. Used sandpaper, a wirebrush, and some other tools.

Long story short, just paint over the top of it. There is absolutely no need to go through that much work. The paint covered just fine, regardless of how much sanding I done.

My little helper...

On the top tube of the bike, there were some guides for for brakes/shifting. Didn’t look that cool so with a hammer, ax, and a grinder, they were quickly no more…

After sanding and stripping paint, it was time for paint.

The vise was super helpful. Especially when painting the fork.
