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)

Removal of Sugino print on RD

I believe I read that you can take the "Sugino" name of the RD cranks with acetone. Just wanted to double check. Anyone done this? Or, use anything else to remove the name?

Acetone sounds right to me - the logo is a silkscreen right? I heard about it used to get the logo off bulletproof cranks.

I used acetone to remove the writing on Bulletproof cranks with no problem.
