My new Industry Nine A318 stem in silver with a 40mm length holding my Chromag bars

Anodized purple and raw aluminum always go good together

New Decade Frame
2017 NS movement parts on a new decade frame. Sorry for the background.

That looks pretty awesome, but get us a better picture!

Agreed. I am a fan of this build.

My budget build, still debating on trying out blue pedals or sticking with black. Also considered swapping the stem for blue but I kind of like the pop of red.

Did you leave the frame raw?

Yup, thats how it sits right now. I may paint it down the road but for the time being its staying as is except for maybe brushing it with steel wool to even the texture out a bit over winter.

Thanks. Yep, I've done just that with a brass brush, makes a difference.
Now entertaining the idea of clear coating it but probably won't do it, as it's also a dj frame - will get knocked about anyway, and it seems like it's way easier to grab the brush once in a while to clean it up.

I find clear coat to be a waste of time on raw aluminum. If you leave a brushed/sanded finish you won’t even hardly notice any scratches that happen. I rawed my commuter a few years ago and took it all the way to polished. Any minor scratches are quickly fixed with some mag polish, and anything deep can be fixed with a little extra effort.

That's what I gathered from various forums too, that it chips and scratches easily and I have no intention to reapply the coating tbh. I like the brushed/matte look too.

same here, i like the sheen as is and doubt that if I rattle can it it will turn out great. Plus its a play bike, its going to get beat up and scratched, this way its part of the character. Although i may experiment with my wife's vinyl cutter to make some minor patterns/graphics for it.
