Re: Chain Plate Replacement

One advantage of titanium over stainless is that apparently polishing of ti is not necessary except for cosmetic purposes.

Do people really polish their SS themselves, and if so how long does it take and what is the process?
If it takes long enough some extra money for the ti may be worth something.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
