Is there already a thread about doing this? I didnt find one. How do I get the stickers off of my steamroller frame without hurting the paint? Are they under clear coat or something?
check this thread for ultimate answers.

They're over the clearcoat, just tie your hair back and scrape them w/ a razor blade. You'll be fine.

Or take a hair dryer to soften the glue, slide a little dental floss under them to peel them off, and use GooGone to get the sticky residue off.
I just took a plastic ice scraper and scraped them off.
did this yesterday. Used steam from an electric tea kettle and a old credit card. They came right off. Also tried the hair dryer that was working ok until it died on me.

The edge of a Park Tool tire lever worked great on my LHT. My thumbs hurt after I was done, but it didn't mess the paint up at all.

Hair dryer and fingernails did the trick for me on my Cross Check.

hair dryer + id card.
softer than a credit card so you can bend it around the frame a bit. i managed to scrape off the 'surly' in two runs.

I did this yesterday and the hairdryer did not help at all. I used a credit card for a while but it was slow and tedious. Then I used an old junk cd which seemed to have a sharper edge than the credit card, and it worked amazingly. The cd also was made of a more brittle and harder plastic than the credit card, so it kept its edge longer (or so it seemed).

I went the hard way and used a utility knife blade...... If you look real close there are some scratches, but otherwise it worked like a charm. You need a real steady hand and a light touch.
I would advise one of the other methods above, however

^^lol, why would you even admit to doing something like that??
Just pick em off with your ****ing fingers and goo-gone the mess. DONE.
