This section of my website used to be dedicated to triathlon training, personal race results and certification reviews, like Turbo Kick. I am expanding it to include more generic health & fitness topics. Also, I talk a lot about "D" -- he's my husband (Dave Liu)!

Custom Bike Painting

I don't even have a new bike yet, but that hasn't stopped me from thinking about how I'm going to paint the new frame!

I got the idea from felow Velo Girl Esther K, who recommended Spectrum Powder Works. According to Esther, Spectrum airbrushes their secret sauce to create intricate details like flames, flowers, snowflakes, etc. It's not liquid paint, nor is it a clean powdercoat on top of liquid paint. It's supposed to be more durable (won't chip as easily) than liquid paint.

Lorri is also lining up another painter that will be a sponsor for Velo Girls. I think she mentioned the name JP Burrows. More details to come...
