Righty mate, I'll speak to my man as to the ease of doing orange. I know green is the biggest nightmare.

Get back to you asap, but hold off the caustic until I give you the word :shock:


Anyone else want orange?

just a few points to make

if the chainrings an outer then you will need to remove the pin which stops chain slipping inbetween crank arm & chainring, due to over shift - as the charge will go straight to the pin causing a nasty melted area!

Skewers etc have to be totally dismantled to only include one metal - hope this makes sense.

Cool, with the green (and the orange too) if we can get as much dipped in one go as possible it will bring the cost down (which I don't see as being expensive)
