    Will Painting void my warranty?

    I thought about stripping down my P.1 this winter, sanding the stock paint job and giving it a stealthy matte black to the frame and fork. would repainting it void my lifetime frame warranty? if it would I will just wait until I buy a better frame, but I still think it would look sweet does anybody have any info? should I talk to my dealer? thanks you guys.

    yes, you will void the warranty. the warranty only applies to the origonal bike, and since the paint is origonal, its voided. there is one painted in the states which doesnt void the warranty, but youd have to check into that...
