Hi
Can anyone tell me how I might protect some purple anodized rims from color loss due to brake rub? Would a softer compound brake pad help? Are there sealants for such things? Any help is appreciated.
Cheers

No, the anodizing with scrub off pretty quickly as its only microns thick of a coating.

More so if you use it in offroad muddy conditions. It is a fact of life.

Disc brakes and keep it out of the sunlight is the only way

Those nasty hard old shimano pads will be better than some eagles claws.
