    06 Racer-X Black Ano Fading

    My once lovely black ano 06 Racer-X is looking more brown than black. I don't leave it outside for extended periods of time so I'm not totally convinced it's UV related. Anyone else noticed this. Is there anything I can do to return it to it's original color. I assume Titus doesn't care at this point..... Maybe I'll powder coat it Fox white like the 07s!

    I just bought an 07. No problems yet. How do you clean your frame?

    It is odd- I know the black ano five spots faded as do the rockers on Ventanas but the black ano of the Yetis don't fade (mine didn;t and I never hear of any).

    So, there must be some difference in the ano process that makes some fade. There isn't anything you can do but the ano process does protect the frame quite well. If you powdercoat it, it will looks really nice AND basically have double protection
