    Anodizing or Powdercoating Alfine hub?

    Just wondering if anyone has done it? Or is it even possible?

    Reason is, I have a red Dynamo front hub and I would like a matching rear hub without spending the $$$$ on a Rohloff.

    Can you share the cost for that job? Mine's an old painted one that's all worn and could use a refresh. I didn't know they had this service.

    They did the hub shell and rims for $100....I imagine that they sent them out some where....not sure. But this was a build...so my LBS was getting the hub from them. Oh SNAP...Just realized U have an Alfine...Doubt that they would anodize a Alfine. U would need to take the hub apart and send it some where.

    I have watched a bunch of tutorials, and they all use the same process.
    This guy have really detailed videos : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GccTVfMiIIo
    The difficult part is to prevent the interior of the hub to enter in contact with the acid bath. It has steel insert that will instantly rust otherwise.
    I' ve used silicone and special 3M anodizing tape.
    I'll do a tutorial when I'll have some time to.
