ano titanium would be kinda sick, especially with the color patters possible. just don't think about the price...
You can do this at home with cocacola and a pretty simple set up.

No. Ti and aluminum anodize very differently.

The blue parts from the wheels and rear derailleur are to much for me... I would prefer only small bits of blue on the wheels, like the spoke nipples, through axle and such... no blue cassette, brakes and hubs...
Would be sick with less blue parts, a dropper post, a bigger fork, mountain bike tires and a slack hta.

You mean another bike could be sick, basically
Yes basically , But this one would kill it in the 29er hardtail xc thread.

Those Envy decals just don't do any good for nice hard tails.

Only Ti, there's a bevy of resources on the web: https://makezine.com/2012/07/12/9-volt-battery-coca-cola-titanium-anodizer/

Back when I had red bolts I used to do this as a refresher for mine.

It's not his bike, see opening post.

what I wanna know, is what are they going to do with that itty bitty rotor up front?

You start a fire...

non xc forks should come with 200mm post mounts so you aren't allowed to run little rotors.

It's a repost but here are more pics... black tires would work much better, imo...
