Nice to see another sporting a Specialized. Own a Sirrus myself, and I love it!


I'm really digging Specialized since I bought my first one, a MTB, a few years back.

Good pricing of the overall fair quality components, considering they're both just entry level bikes.

You are doing the full distance. That bike needs a Star Wars repaint too! :)

PS: Seeing a bike-portable X-Wing system my first thought was Denmark or the Netherlands - and it wasn't far off.

is there any 'stickiness' to the dials with the clear coat on them?


did you clear coat both sides?  and both top and bottom discs?


does the washer make them easier to rotate or is it just to keep them from rubbing?


sorry for all the questions.

Once the gloss coat has dried, there is no stickiness at all, at least with the brand I've been using (Rustoleum 2x Coverage). It leaves a nice shiny coat that almost looks like plastic.


Yes, I coat both sides of everything. Make sure to let the first side dry completely before flipping them, or they can stick to the surface you paint them on and peel the paper off a bit. Placing them on wax paper should help with that.


The nylon washer does make them easier to rotate, and if they get too free you can squeeze the plastic center piece together to tighten it up a bit. I've had several people comment on how much easier my dials are to rotate (that didn't sound quite the way I intended ...)
