    will painting trek/fisher frameset void warranty?

    I got an '11 Rig frameset a few weeks back. The color/graphics have not grown on me. In addition they're cheap & a few of the white graphics are peeled up. I did notice the barcode sticker on bb that says warranty void if removed. Now If I protect that sticker & paint/wetsand the rest of the frame is my warranty void? I'm feeling a seafoam green.

    Technically "Yes" you will void the warranty.

    And with a seemingly high proportion of GF frames cracking I would want the piece of mind of having a warranty.

    Thanks Bob. I'll be leaving the stock paintjob just in case

    Besides not a fan of the overall graphic thing, it is a poor finish. The white band around the sea tube & one on the seatstays was peeled up in the corner so I pulled it a little to see what's underneath....It's a clean line between the contrasting colors, but it looks like the matte finish was sprayed over the paint/decals so that if you remove the decals you'll have a crooked strip of gloss finish over an otherwise matte frame.

    Other than finish I'm still happy with the ride. A few strategically placed stickers can hold down the graphic I guess.

    Thanks again.
