First look at the Ceramicoat twins
I’m liking the result so far, and the durability is supposed to surpass powdercoat. One of the good things about this process, is that (according to Roger at STB) the ceramic particles bond to the tube at a molecular level, and that when the coating is scratched or otherwise compromised, moisture will not make it’s way underneath the neighboring particles. That means you don’t have to worry about rust crawling under the coating next to a scratch. These two are going to Flying Dog Racing out in Maryland, so we’ll see how they do where the trails stay muddy half the year. That’s also why the black frame has Crud Catcher mounts brazed on the underside of the down tube.
