    I'm hearing rumors that there is a specialized certified painter that can do custom paintjobs and won't void warranty. This true?

    dude, it's a mtn bike that's going to get scratched. just deal with the color.
    There's an old phrase, "function over form", think about it.

    Then don't paint the bike. Is it *really* that hard to comprehend?

    I want a pj cause i don't want to void warranty and i think the stock looks like ass. Its gonna get scratched true, but i want it to be my bike, not just another one off the assembly line, i'm gonna keep it awhile so i want it to be custom.

    aight, i'll give olympic a shot and see if they do it. its an sxtrail 08 i'm looking at. the treeline graphic is cool and all but i want it matte black frame and do the graphics in a mineral grey, something almost as dark. I basically want it to look matte black unless someone takes the time to look at it and see that its got that treeline and specialized. its mostly the warranty factor that has me thinking about doing this. Anyways thanks for the posts, you guys can bicker and argue on a diff thread, i consider this one done and over with.

    Is this new that Sp Ed isnt warranting frames if you have them custom painted? I didnt have any trouble sending in a set of chainstays for an 05 enduro that had a crack, and the bike was custom Pc'd Specialized didnt have any problems sending us a new set.

    Is there a reason you're not asking Specialized directly?

    Olympic does really good work, have sent more then a few items to them, Most likely who will be doing my Dirtbag, when I ever decide to go ahead and tear it down
