I've just aquired a set of Pace RC35 forks with the CNC brace on the rear (does that make then the K or AB or XCS version?).

Supposing I wanted to have some parts anodised, how far could I reasonably go with strippping them down?

For example the crown is easy enough to unbolt and send off for anodising, but does the CNC brace detach (it looks like it should?), and can any other parts be removed without too much trouble?

Or is it possible to anodise, lets say the dropouts, with the carbon tubes still in-situ??

I don't know about the brace, but the dropouts can't be easily done with the legs still attached.
It's certainly not something I would attempt.
Anything steel attached to the part being anodised will be dissolved.

The ally fork crown should be ok to anodise though?

I've not seen one for years. As long as it is 100% aluminium it should be fairly easy.
Contact me if you want a price :)
