Nitromors shouldn't do anything to aluminum really, I'd say just clean the rims off real good when you're done to make sure there's no residue or anything.


I'm more worried about oxidation. Pretty sure aluminium oxidises still?

Well yeah but not in the same way as steel. It'll take a good while to start showing signs of oxidization in the first place, but then once the entire surface is oxidized to a certain depth (extremely small number, I'm not sure what it is) it will stop and won't go any deeper. I don't think something like Nitromors would speed that process up but I guess it could happen...

I don't know enough to give you a definite answer, but I would be tempted to say you'll be fine.

Anyone ever rawed/polished a rim? I want to do at least my back one, is it hard? I assume it'll be the same as anything, I'll just need a bigger tub? I have Fly rims too so it should be double fun.


Have been thinking of doing this for a while now, as well.

Best idea I've come up with was the use a garbage can lid as the "tub".

Interested to see what other people say.  Mines anodized.

Mine is anodised too. It has a bit of paint on so I'll see if I can get rid of that and raw it next week some time. Will post pics and hopefully not end up with caustic soda filled rivers in the drilled bits.

Does anyone know the width of the Elementary stem? The front bit where the bars slide in?

Did you use brakes on the rawed rim?

Where can one buy replacement parts for the animal javelin cassette hub?  Don't need a new driver but I would love to know when the time comes.

I'd email Animal, they look like they would use odysey style drivers though

The axles seem to be readily available but not much else. Judging by the fact that it uses 1 spring I'd say it's probably an Oddy/Joytech driver.

according to my ghetto measuring tape, my V3 is around 49-50mm width at the bar clamping area of the "frame". note that the full width of the "frame" is about 50-51mm. there is a slight taper towards the handlebar clamping area.

the wedge that butts up against the bars are slightly shorter (or "narrower"), at around 47-48mm.

my assumption is that you're measuring because of custom narrow flatland style bars - with very careful filing you may be able to get up to an extra 1mm clearance on each side, although this will still likely affect the stem significantly

The frame is already pretty minimal
