How much for the hub?cooler heads were prevailing and then i saw this on ebay this morning
so i grabbed it. soon as i get it and build it up i'll have a small ellsworth moment frame and rohloff hub for sale if you or anybody you know is interested.
anodized vs powdercoated frame and different shock.
Anodizing is a metal coating technique that uses electrically charged particles and oppositely charges the object to be coated, resulting in an extremely hardy finish. So hard you have to hit it with rocks or a hammer to crack the finish. It will eventually wear in places like the stays where your shoes rub it (mine has this). It doesnt have the shiny finish that a powdercoated painted frame has since there is no top clear coat. It is a little harder to clean for the same reason since the surface has a texture. Still, it will definitely outlast other finishes and the blues and other colors are pretty cool if you like understated.Oh, well i don't know what anodized is either, i thought it was a type of paint. I learn something new about biking everyday i read this forum.
They have a polished version as well as a sale on a polished Nomad here: http://www.coloradocyclist.com/product/display/90013/
