Looking for an anodiser

mangliermanglier Posts: 731
Like the title says I am trying to find an anodiser. I have just bought some new wheels that have bright green hubs (Scribe Race) so am wanting to get my stem anodised to match. Anyone out there with any experience?

    colours available depend on the process used, afaik bright green is probably a dye process

    i suggest first ask scribe who does theirs and/or if they can tell you the process/colour specification, then at least you know what you need to get done

    might turn out easier to lacquer a silver anodised stem

    Most likely anodised at source (ie somewhere in the far east), so the specs may be difficult to get hold of.

    A local anodiser might be able to match the colour, but you haven't said where you are located..

    just use some green electrical tape.

    diy might be an option...

    be careful though as they will fade at different rates and end up looking like a 90s motorbike from the scrapper.....

    You’d be better off going to a custom spray painter and getting your stem painted to match. Much easier to match the colour with paint. You could even get it customised whilst you are at it. Here is my Pro Stealth custom painted bar/ stem to match the frame.
