Thanks Rumpfy, that is much appreciated. If I was true to my 1992/3 self I should have covered the bike in stickers as well :D

I might try it with silver rings but that wasn't really the point of the build. It was to build a bike that was true to it's 92 heritage.


My thoughts are identical to Rumpfy's, but I have to take on the comment about it's heritage. The ARC was a race bike, but I can't think of any ARCs or race bikes from the era that went as far as anodized chainrings. Even Tinker's Adroit, which over a whole other rainbow, featured silver rings.


For for that matter I can't think of anyone that raced with anodized rings period... I'm sure there were people though.
