    White Cyclerack?

    Anyone paint their Cyclerack white? I'm all about the clean install look. I have a 2016. Frame is silver, front plastic is Midnight blue, back plastic is white. I was thinking a white Cyclerack might look like a real clean install. Anyone have a picture of a white Cyclerack installed on white plastic?

    It would only stay nice and white if you never used it! The gray powder coat is pretty tough, but it also doesn't show scratches and dings easily (inevitable). Overcoating with white would like like hell after a year.

    I would sand blast and re-powder coat. I know a guy. I guess I could go with any color.

    From what I understand. Once metal is powder coated it cannot be media blasted off? White would look good, but for how long......

    Why don't you just contact them and have them paint it white for you? They are very nice and responsive

    Did that earlier today. No response yet, which is cool, not complaining at all. Just was hoping someone here had done it before, or had picture of someone who has done it.

    Haven't seen one in white might look ok but doesnt the 2016 have blue on the tank? I'd be all over a nice blue cyclerack to match the tank I've never been a big fan of all the white plastics IMO
