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 just used a lint roller to remove a painted decal off my raw leader frame.

Seriously I did; I couldn't stand the cheap seat tube decal that said "ECO founder land tube technology taiwan drafted" on my new leader 727tr frame. I noticed how the decal was painted above the clearcoat, so I began picking at it with my fingernail and it began coming off. But the little paint specs were hard to get off the frame, so I used a lint roller repeatedly and big pieces of the decal started peeling off. With more pressure it was all gone.

Hey you can't blame me when I got the frame for less than a benjamin in total.

I was only kidding because the recently-surfaced hatred of Leader frames.

You have to post your bikes more, I've only seen them like once...or less.

Once or less - you think you seen it, but not sure

If you buy a generic frame, getting rid of the decals makes it look cool.

No one will miss a brand they never heard of!

Good thing it's a tool, not a trophy.

The best part is at the end when he's goes acapella on the two chicks.
