So....I'm thinking nude Ti is the way to go. So is this sandblasting? Chemical dip? What about the carbon fork? It is painted too. How does one get rid of the paint in the fork? Thanks in advance....
There are several Da Vinci-class bike painters (Joe Bell, CyclArt) in the San Diego area. Ask them.
For the frame, I'd go for a chemical dip. There's little chance that the titanium will be affected. The chemicals might melt the fork, though.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
