    New question here. Decal Removal Voids Warranty?

    If I remove that retarded decal that says "Riding a bicycle is dangerous" or whatever, will that void my frame warranty? What if I plaster the bike with different decals? I was just wondering because Diamondback seems to be pretty @nal about their warranty plans.

    The more major graphics seem to be painted on. I think that the XSL lacks a clear coat... (no shine whatsoever). It looks good.

    No, removing the decal that says "read your manual before riding this bicycle" or "register your bike with NBR" will not warranty. That stuff is there because of this lovely sue happy society we live in. At times, it presents a problem if you have an older (1999 model year and back) bike with no decals because one may not be able to tell what model year it is. No, the serial number may tell you what year it was made, but not what model it is.

    anything short of the clearcoat.

    Anything that you can remove by hand is fair game.
