  • "Deadly stick"

    5, 2015 resident of UK, relaxed walking through the national Park of the Brecon Beacons with a selfie-stick. Also relaxed he wanted to photograph myself with the camera mounted on a selfie-stick.

1Тут problem, if you paint from a cylinder will wear off after a while. If the tassel will be a bit vintage (for an Amateur :THINK ) and will also be down. If the camera and spectroscopy - will be expensive but will take longer to peel. Of course this will have to disassemble the bike. The frame, actually it and paint, remove old paint and rust, or luted, but it is not convenient (the surface is not easy). In General, the process is not the most pleasant. Here then the question arises, what is cheaper? Buy a new frame or bike, or hold such dances with a tambourine? Well, or choose something cheap and durable. ...
