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)

IRO decals - under the clearcoat?

Part of the plan for my townie/light road/brevet/general good-times project is a minimal aesthetic, as in no/minimal decals. I thought I remembered that the IROs came powdercoated with decals on top (removable). Is this still the case? Was this ever the case? I did some rudimentary Googling, and it looks like I might be wrong (but nothing definitive). Some of you are riding these, right?

Oh well, back to the drawing board. Time to order a Pake frameset? Maybe.

I don't think it is removable without damaging anything.
