Had some chainrings anodised green as an experiment - here are the results

The King top cap was the colour match sample. It is very hard to get a perfect match shade - a lot depends on surface finish & King wins hands down here :lol:

Not a bad effort I thought....

I'm sure you've probably said in another post, but how much did that cost? Looks pretty cool to me, even if the shade & consistency isn't perfect.

Did not cost a bean, got done as a favour to a guy I work with who deals with the company as part of his motorcycle race team (what a sentence!)

Green is a pain to do, but we could get a batch done at a cheap rate providing there are lots of bits to do. The cost is in the setting up. I will enquire


As you have stated it's a very difficult colour to get consistant :(
