Sorry, due to the physics of light there is no black, orange or red in titanium anodization. I have not found a way to blacken titanium yet. There are methods for blackening stainless steel. The gun industry has a few, but the easy to apply coatings are not very durable and would rub off at any of the contact points on a water bottle cage. The other coatings require either vats of boiling acid, vacuum chambers, or ovens. I have used this one with some success on small things like head tube badges. http://www.caswellplating.com/metal-...blackener.html

Firefly Titanium Road :: D/A Di2

Thanks for all of the kind words. It's a good thing I'm not showing any pictures of my hands... the nicer the bikes come out, the more thrashed they get...

Dura Ace Di2 (battery in seatpost), blacked out ENVE bar, stem and post, blacked out Rotor cranks, kangaroo leather handlebar wrap and reupholstered saddle by Busyman Cycles, ENVE Smart System hoops.

How do you "black out" the Rotor cranks? Acetone?
