    Finish on silver velocity deep-v rims?

    Does anyone know if the silver velocity deep-v rims are bare aluminum or if they have some sort of finish on them? I have a black set on my bike and want to strip the black off, but wasn't sure if I should put something on them afterwards. I don't want to polish them or anything, I am just looking for a color like the stock silver. Thanks.

    yeah, I have a set and they look like, um, metal. They aren't polished and it appears that there may be some sort of coating that gives it a very slight texture -- not necessarily visible but to the touch, it's there.

    the 'bright silver' color advertised by velocity is anodized.

    Is the Electric Red anodized?
    Can you use a brake on anodized surface or does it still need to be machined?
