Best way to remove powder from a frame is like mentioned above

This is the way I decide what finish I want to go with.

If the bike is a complete full build that is show quality type finish with the paint etc I usually go with powdercoating the frame,
You can have gloss black powdercoated that is just as glossy or more glossy than black paint.

If im doing a build that is a little less of a spit and polish type of build I will go with paint simply because it shows road wear much faster and blends in with the rest of the bike quicker.
(this is like when I do bikes with original paint tins or old paint tins etc.

me personally I like the powdercoating better as it holds up much better than paint does in regards to chips nicks and scratches
