I would literally become "that customer" that everyone talks about from years on. I would be . I don't care how cool they were about it.

Powder coating is for bikes that don't get used much. I finally gave up powder coating my rims because every tire change it was just to easy to scratch. you have to really try and focus not to scratch which makes changing the tire longer. Its mostly little nicks that get on them

Best way to change powder coat rims. Is to take of the brake calipers and tie them way the out the way. One time that it hits the rim. SCRRATCH.
