    to answer the questions about polishing after the fact- I just use occasional swipes of Blue Magic to get the shine back up. All of the black oxidation just wipes off of the bike and can be easily cleaned off with a rag, and it's not abrasive enough to harm decals.

    Polishing around welds and cable guides is easy, for me, the hardest part was stripping those areas. I ended up using a wire brush (brass) and even more paint stripper to get them clean, then wet sanded/polished them. Lots of details in the thread I linked to a few posts up.

    Lol, thanks. It's actually not a cover. I added the tassels around the base of the seat.

    Lets see your RAW aluminium!

    EazeBikes Dude AM Prototype frame
    (not being taken to production, as they moved to 27.5 wheels and called the new one "Mr Funky V")
    WWW.EAZEBIKES.COM

    Well it started life like this:
    Let's see your raw aluminium!-p4pb10640892.jpg

    Then I re-anodised the small parts red, drilled out stealth routing and built her up:

    Then decided that she was looking a bit too tired in full raw, so got her anodized black and new red graphics from Eaze:

    All in ~28lb, not bad for a 170mm travel F&R Alu bike
