    I’ve sprayed one in the past – I just gave it a good clean, masked the Thomson logos with some masking tape and then did a couple of thin layers of Plastikote black spray. Worked very well and other than fairly close up, you’d never notice.

    Black marker pen?

    I’d go for black pen.

    Doesn’t really last or even work that well when new IME.

    Strip and re-anodise if you want to do it properly

    Black humbrol and a fine brush. Matt or gloss. I find that pen doesn’t last.

    Of course not. I don’t think that he was suggesting that suicide was the alternative if he couldn’t do anything.

    Besides, does what tyres you use really matter either? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1) Tried marker pen and it looks purple!
    2) The world will continue spinning if I don’t do it – but I’m fat old and crap so I’d at least like my bike to look reasonably decent ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve got some black spray I may give that a try.

    Black anodized and has a few scratches on it…. any way to hide them a bit? Spraying an option?

    That depends, are the scratches battles scars from use which clearly show how gnar you are? Or are the scratches from when you came home one night after work to find that your wife had been out for a ride with friends and lent your bike to another bloke who was so stunted that he had to put the seat down 4โ€ by seemingly screwing the seatpost back and forth into the frame removing all traces of anodising from the aforementioned 4โ€ of post?

    Yeah, it does. I was going to mention that after I posted, but then didn’t. Sorry.

    You’ll have to colour in the whole post now. See if you can make anything amusing out of THOMSON. Magpies fan?
