[quote="michael"]enen though its not much of a difference, its still faster, also, even though it will effect your speed even less, it will be more areodynamic because the tube will not be as big with only anodising rarther then paint[/quote]

Questionable. Anodised surface is porous by nature and therefore less aerodynamic than smooth, polished paint. Obviously this is negligible small and probably undetectable differences realm and aerodynamic drag will mostly depend on rider position.
