perfectly, i literally have stripper sat on my welds on my frame right now. my biggest tip would be to scrape it off with a strippers knife on the main surface, to save on stripper as its expensive

I love how people are now matching their fork with the frame. It always looks great IMO.

chemical stripper should be fine. read the can I believe some arent safe for use on aluminum. Ive used chemical stripper alot and its been fine for me on aluminum parts as well. look for an aerosol stripper its the easiest to use in my opinion.

just make sure not to get the stripper on the stanchions Attention and remove the seals too. Id use a ton of masking tape on the stanchions myself and just wipe off any that gets on it.

Going to start ordering bits for my new build, but I need help deciding what colours to do where. I'm going to do; Chrome, and Aqua
Chrome: Frame
Aqua: Hubs, Stem, Sprocket
Black: Grips, Seat, Rims, Spokes, Pedals
Now what I need help with, what of these parts should be chrome and what should be black..
The list; Cranks, Fork, Bar, Headset, BB
Think that is all, I'd appreciate feedback and what you think of the Chrome/Aqua scheme,
Thanks!
