What's cookin ?

This week, we powder coated alot of Tchokr forks and I took some picture to show you what it looks like in the oven.

After spraying them with the powder, the forks and frames need to "bake" in our pizza oven at 350 for 20 minutes.On this picture you can see the curing process of the powder coat when its in the oven.

On the first fork on the right you can see the powder is still powder...and on the second one you can see it starting to melt and become liquid and solid (the thicker steerer tube take more time to get at the meltdown temp). Its a pretty cool process. Those fork are in our stock trans-blue color.
