What do you use to care for a titanium frame? I've heard Lemon Pledge and WD40, have you tried anthing else that works?
try a scotch brite pad. nmjaybird

I'd start with the finest. Available at auto-body supply houses. You can also get ultra fine sandpaper.

But that assumes a "brushed" finish.

Pedro's Bike Lust (www.performancebike.com) does a great job of shining Ti after it is clean.

I like to clean my Ti bike up with Goo Gone or 409 to remove the crud and grease spots. If it's just dirty/dusty, soap and water work very well. I polish after cleaning with Pledge or Pedro's Bike Lust. I actually prefer the Pledge shine, but it does nothing to clean. Pedro's seems to polish with a slight bit of cleaning benefit. I'm an anal-retentive, accountant, clean freak geek though.
