    Some Elbow Grease and A Big Pain in the Ass

    Inspired by this (http://tinyurl.com/e28c3) post, I decided to polish my Midge. It worked, but it took a long time and lots of lye to remove the anodizing. It's not a perfect mirror, but it's at least as good as my Phils--and that's good enough for me.

    Hmmm..may have to do that to the Fleegle I'm about to order from Mean Todd, now that they're in. And holy crap is that a sweet Bonty in the other thread...I've got a Waltworks segmented built to Bonty specs on my Race Lite too, but I hardly ride it now that I'm fully converted to 29er.

    Yeah, that Bontrager is sweet. If only it weren't pink...

    I'm thinking of this as well - but considering how lazy I am I'll probably just do the centre section.
