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)

I know you can prep them like anything else. Sand it, all that stuff, and then paint. I dunno about removing it completely. Good luck. I'm very curious as well.

I used gasket remover to get powdercoat off of a frame. Worked great and a can of it was about $6 or so.
