Black Deep V - anodized or powdercoated?

I have a black machined deep v rim that I want to strip the finish off of, but I want to make sure I know what to use first. I looked at the velocity USA website and it looks like the black finish is anodize. Does anyone know if they have always been or if they were once powdercoated? My rim is a couple of years old. I emailed Velocity about a week ago, but never heard back. Thanks.

I always thought the deep v's were powdercoated and aeroheads were anodized. Not 100% positive though

I did see that chart. I thought maybe the older ones might have been powdercoated or something. Thanks.

i believe that historically they've anodized the darker colors (black, purple, green, blue, red) and powdercoated the lighter colors (white, pink, teal, celeste, yellow)

this isn't 100% accurate, i know for a fact they've powdercoated and anodized red, but i'm pretty sure the blacks have always been ano.

Can you run the black anodized rims with breaks? (The ones without silver strip around them) I want to get an all stealth black wheelset for my ride, but still have a break.

Is their a black rim option from another manufacturer that allows for this, if Velocity's are not appropriate?

yes you can, they will squeal a bit and won't work as well as having a machined lip. Please use the search feature, this is a topic covered and answered quite extensively. ALSO ITS BRAKES.

The red, purple, blue and I also believe anti freeze green are a clear colored paint/clear-material, they are not anodized. You can see right through down to the metal. And eventually near the seams you can get small cracks in the coating and it will come off.

Back at one point I do know that the red's were painted.

A little off topic; however, I think this question has a good chance of being answered in this thread. I have a green deep v non-ano, how would I go about stripping the paint off? Would coating another color on top be easier?

Nah, they work fine. I run a brake on NM rims and they've never squeeled and it works fine. The anodizing rubs off a little and they end up looking like machined rims. You only ever use your brake softly on a fixed wheel anyway.
