    What would happen if you Line-X/Duraline your unicycle? It is the spray one bead liner for trucks and suvs. i have one in my truck bed and it is tough. would there be any issues with doing this?

    I dont know what duraline/x-line is, but my guess is that it would probably scratch/chip more easily than powdercoat
    No harm in trying though, it wont be bad for the uni

      Translation: It is the spray-on bed liner for trucks and SUVs.
      Wouldn't that make your unicycle frame a lot thicker? I had the impression that it doesn't go on in a very thin layer...

          I think that's a great idea!

          I had that liner sprayed on my last pickup; it was tough, went through a lot of abuse & still looked great. It's not that thick of a coating.

          Only problem I see is trying to get it off once you want to do the next paint job.

                  It will add a lot of weight.

                      Well if you want the equivalent of dipping your uni in plastic, I guess that's one way to go. Make sure your bearing holder and seat tube are protected in some way when they spray.

                          Just wanted to make sure you had considered that. Be sure to post up pictures when it's done.
