Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

About what bike are we talking?

It depends. If they're under clearcoat, you need to zip strip it or something to get the decal off - but that will ruin the paint too unless we're talking about a chrome Pista.

you can sometimes get away with sanding down the logo, repainting and clearcoating, and then using a clearcoat polish to even things out - depending on the color of your frame

then sure. sand it down, clean it, and then hit it with a single coat of primer, and 2 coats of laquer, and then 2 coats of clearcoat. let it overlap the painted edges a bit. let it cure, and then use clearcoat polish, which is a superfine abrasive, to even it up. bam, it's like it was never there.
