i have a pair of red Ti glide hubs which are very faded, was wondering if it was possible to have them re-anodized?

thanks in advance for any help and advice

As far as I know, you can't.

You can't have other metals in with the alloy during the process, and you cant split the flanges from the Ti bit.

Your best bet may be to polish them?

Nice red permanent felt pen can work a treat, great on bolts too. Doesn't even need to be Alu.

WB2: i thought this may be case with the 2 different metals
tbh i dont really want to polish them as i have a blue and red with a flash of polish/silver theme going on, though i guess i could maybe get some NOS end caps and polish the hubs
failing that, FC's top tip of the day is probably the way forward :wink:
