|Any suggestions on what polish to use to keep my baby looking new? Sweat does a number on it.
|If you are talking Titanium, try cleaning it with WD-40 (nm)||joekm|

|Try Mother's aluminum and chrome polish (from an auto store)... I've tried several and it's the best.|

|Ken2 beat me too it. Mother's is the best thing on the market for polishing chrome and aluminium. And it's pretty cheap too.
|Make sure it is not Anodized over the burnish.||MB1|

|Both 7000 series and 6000 series aluminum frames have been ball burnished. 7000 series aluminum must also be anodized because it corrodes (copper is added).
If you take a polish like Mothers or Semi-Chrome that turns black as you use it you are taking the Anodizing off 7000 series aluminum. So use the harsh polishes only on 6000 series aluminum and windex and the like on 7000 series aluminum.
