    New question here. Powder Coating an Anodized Frame?

    How well do anodized frame take powder coating? Looking at picking up a used frame for the misses and would like to powder coat it a custom color.

    Just as long as painter cleans it well, but the paint should be darker than the frame for good coverage or they have to put a TON of paint on to cover the dark ano.

    just spray oven cleaner on the anodizing, provided there is no sealer over top, it will take the ano right off.

    Then get you bare frome powder coated.

    Good advice, but there is supposed to be sealer on the anodizing to keep it nice. But, it's worth a try. I do NOT recommend taking it to a anodizer to strip the sealer and color though. That will require an 'etch' and that removes metal from every part of the frame, including the pivots and HT and BB and ST. ruin a frame so fast it'll make your wallet bleed.
