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)

Eighth inch frame question

I am thinking of buying the eighth inch brand track frame, but I am only going to do so if the company stickers are easily removed. By easily removed, I mean, little to no residue leftover. From my experience, every type of "goo gone" or "goof off" type of solvent does a great job of removing sticker residue, but there is always a haze left behind on the nice paint.

my question is, has anyone done this to an Eighth Inch frame before?

the stickers arent applied when you get the bike. you have to apply them yourself.

unless youre buying used, then idk...

WD40 or baby oil removes sticker residue quite easily too.

Stickers come on a sheet so you can apply them as you wish, or not apply them at all. The frame is 100% blank when it arrives, promise.
