Commuter mountain bike overhaul
#1
Overhauled and repainted my beater mountain bike that I use to commute to the train station everyday, rain, snow, or shine!

I sanded, primed and painted a "carbon fiber"-like effect on the front part.

Here is a video of the overhaul process, with some before, during and after pictures:

As Alex said Very nice work! Definitely pro looking. On the other bike you did like this I said imagine the colors and patterns one could do using this method well here is one I had mind. I like the two tone effect, I did the same colors to a Murray Baja Street 10spd. (my work beater). I'll grab a picture or 10 and upload them to the site. Again very sweet!
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
