Does anyone know if it's feasible to strip a steel bike of its paint and have it chromed? There a re a few automotive and industrial platers in town but I understand they will apply a coat far too thick for a bike.

I am talking about taking "raw" one or two steps further and making it MIRROR finish. Maybe with oil slick everything......

I am feeling nostalgic for my childhood BMX bike (which was chrome)
Yep. There’s a guy at my LBS who does that. He did a Patrol and a Scott DH. They look amazing.

You do know what that suggests, no?

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

If I'm doing a "murdered out" black, its gonna be that Vanta black pain that only reflects like 0.05% of light.

Everything. rims, spokes, frame, bars, everything but the suspension and dropper stanchions.
exactly. no one will see me finally. get some onyx vesper hubs and it'll be so stealth

Black is boring. No more black bikes for me.
