    Every frame ive had was PC and easy to get all the dirt off. This nicolai is silver ano, and the dirt likes to get around the welds and in other areas, and it kind of seems like it has stained the ano coloring. Is there any chemical or other way to make a silver anodized frame all shiney like new again :confused:

    i'm wondering if the anodized layer was 'sealed' properly, because that would cause staining (basically how anodized parts are colored). Some parts that i anodized at home or that got oxidized (same thing but naturally) eventually got stained. Other parts that i got done professionally havent.

    The common cleaners and scrubbing might be a good start, but i'd be careful with some heavier cleaners which might strip the ano layer down, because that will probably make things worse.
