Hey guys,

I just got an old stock Cannondale Supersix, and want to get it repainted.
Actually, i really want to strip the frame of all paint, just apply decals, and satin clear coat.

Can anyone recommend a paint shop that does good work on carbon frames?
I would prefer if they are in California since that is where i'm based.
I know there are DIY threads for this, but i dont care to do it myself.

Thanks for the help.

I can't remember the name of the place, but it's what Calfee uses after frame repairs. they are absolutely top notch.

You're thinking of Joes Bicycle Painting?
A friend had them paint his Tarmac and it came out horribly :shock: :?
You could look into Predator Cycling in Santa Monica, they have done some good work from what I have seen.
OP if you want, pm me, I have some contact info for a painter I'm planning on using..
