    Yes don't powder coat - its the devils finish, looks good for 8 to 10 years, then allows moisure under it and is a pig to sort.
    Paint them.

    Polish them yourself and re-paint with the original finish, single-stage enamel.

    Same warning go for frames? Just about to get my replacement frame powedercoated and I’d hate to see that happen. My plan is to keep bike another 36 years.

    a chip in the powder coat is harder to fix than a chip in paint .
