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)

VISP stickers?

I've been seeing those VISP track frames around on eBay again, I think they got taken off for a while. I've been thinking about getting the frame, does anybody know if the decals are removable? They sure are ugly.

The decals can theoretically be removed, but you will almost certainly mess up the paint in the process. You can also buy them w/o decals:

yeah the decals are real thin and would probably require sanding to get em off.

get the one without decals, or do what i did, cover the decals with electrical tape =D (its a beater)
