I may have touch(ed) my chainwheel regularly with my right shoes, in the period before using SPD. The black coating has been scraped off a bit here and there. How can I touch this up - not like to spray paint though...

Hmm.. how bad is it? I touch up knicks in my frame with nail polish.

no knicks, just scraped...

Two blank spots as big as a penny - the black coating scraped...

black touch-up paint, if the purely cosmetic issue bothers you

If it's paint, then black paint will work with the appropriate primer. I suspect it is anodized though, in which case Birchwood Casey makes a product called "Aluminum Black" for touching up metal.

OK, I do think it's anodized - I'll check the Al. black. thanx.
