    How to touch up "scraped" front chainwheel shimano 105

    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...

    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.
