    Peeling off Litespeed stickers

    How do I do that? The stickers just chip away when I try to peel them off, any suggestions?

    You can also heat them with a hair dryer as you peel them if you don't want to use chemicals.

    Decal removal

    I can speak from experience that you need to use chemicals to get these decals off the frame. It is the quickest and easiest way to remove them. With a little paint thinner you can have them off the frame in less then 5 min.

    Acetone is most effective, often sold at drug stores as nail polish remover.

    Have to be careful with the stuff because it will eat some plastics, such as the plastic covers on xtr shifter pods.

    Also do not breathe it or allow it to remain on skin.

    Man, Acetone does an amazing job. Funny it took me so long to try it out given that I work with it everyday. Anyway, they're off! Thanks everyone!

    is a good head badge.
    I removed my stickers on my Pisgah a couple of months ago.
