    Bix Stripper / paint remover

    Have any of you guys tried this on your bicycle? I want to get rid of bianchi logo on my pista and i'm wondering if this will work on it. Let me know, thanks.

    No but most people use JASCO on Pistas and other chrome with great success.

    I haven't used that stuff on a bike, but I have used it to strip the paint off a door and its pretty intense. The fumes were so bad that I got a bit light headed and I was doing it outside. It'll definitely take off that logo, but it might be a bit too much as well. Just so you know. If you use it, let us know how it goes.

    Alright guys, it didn't turn out so well, luckily, instead of starting off big and trying to remove the huge bianchi logo, i tried removing the PISTA and the no brakes w/ the exclamation mark thing. YEAHH, it didn't go so well haha, i'll post up some pics tomorrow

    So today, after about 2 hours of stripping / removing, here's how it looks. Still needs just a bit more work, just a little.

    you got to let it sit for like 30 mins.. then scrap it off with something like credit card.

    i used that same thing and it worked well on my fuji frame.
