Good morning all
After coming across this site a few weeks ago I have done 2 things
1. spent way too much time looking at the pretty bikes on here
2. cried myself to sleep after becoming aware of how many hundreds of pounds of bike stuff i have skipped over the years.

Anyhoo i am going to start tinkering again and want to strip and polish a commencial combi disc frame I have and am wondering do you have any advice for me for the best way to get the pain off before i start asking questions about the best way to polish it?

thanks
Rob

You could strip it yourself with nitromors but would be easier to find a local company to bead-blast it :). Is it steel or ally?

Soda blasting would be better.
