I'm thinking of putting a new paint job on my fixed gear. Anyone know what the best kind of spraypaint to use? I was gonna us a galvanizing primer. Any help is appreciated.

While i won't recommend rattle-can for painting a bike, i'm sure i won't convince you otherwise. I would recommend getting automotive spray paint, taking your time, spray the hard to reach areas first then spraying the rest of it. Lay down a primer, then keep do multiple thin coats of paint with a clear coat covering.

Thanks for the help man, I have the process I need to do down. I just was wondering what the best spray paint would be as I don't have access to a spray gun for automotive type paint.

I've painted a bike before and it actually came out really nice.

I don't remember what type of paint I used but make sure you take your time to take everything apart, clean, sand, and even sandblast some parts if there's rust or corrosion. Have a space set aside where the parts can hang to dry without interruption.

Look into what places around you are charging for powder coating. It's usually not that expensive and it will last a long time

I'd try to find a friend with an airbrush. The paint will be a little more expensive, but it will be worth it.

You don't need a spray gun. Go to any paint store that sells auto paint. I think Sherwin Williams and the like still do. They will put just about any paint in an aeresol can for you. Imo this is the way to go as it will be a much better paint than what you'll get off the shelf at Wally mart.

Used automotive paint with a spray gun I picked up at ACE hardware.
Let us know how the build goes in the Fixed Gear thread

power coat if weight isnt an issue or automotive paint. those will probably be your best longest lasting options
