    Removing or Repainting Specialized Carbon

    Hi all,

    Been looking for a Stumpy Evo 29 frame for a while now and finally found one - catch is it's the horrendous Troy Lee Designs versions.

    Has anyone removed paint from the specialized carbon frames? If so, how difficult? How did you do it? Worth it? or pay the extra grand or more for a black frame?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Pretty sure that it voids the warranty but you would have to contact a Specialized dealer to confirm.

    If I'm not mistaken if you remove the paint from any Specialized frame...alloy or carbon...it voids the warranty.

    There is one Specialized-approved powdercoater for alloy frames, that will allow you to retain your warranty. Not sure about carbon though.

    You can get it repainted without voiding your warranty.

    SPECIALIZED | Frame Repainting and decal detailing
    Specialized has approved Class Act Paint and Powder in Portland, Oregon and Anderson Custom Bicycles in St. Paul, Minnesota as the only painters in the United States authorized to paint or powdercoat a Specialized frame while still preserving the warranty. We have found that their processes and methods are up to the Specialized standard and therefore we recommend them for custom paint applications. You will need to retain both your original bicycle proof of purchase as well as an invoice/receipt from Class Act or Anderson to take advantage of the Specialized limited lifetime frame warranty should the need arise. Please see the contact information below to arrange the details through them.
