    gotta get a little paint!?

    I just got one of those last year flight monocog frames from web cyclery, but the stickers appear to be under the clear coat, so I'm considering re-painting it since I still don't have all the parts yet. What is the best way to prep the frame, what type of paint stripper, or sand paper, ect. I was thinking of maybe going for a nice bright yellow, and maybe ordering some of the old school redline monocog stickers if they can be ordered. Good advice would be appreciated.

    No real need to take it down to bare metal. Sand it to rough up the finish. Spray it. Done.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thanks Shiggy, I was the one ridding the Red 19" Monocog w/ profiles at Harmcon. I picked the aluminum one up because I wanted the 17" size for the more aggressive ridding it gets, and I wanted dual disc brakes, and I ordered up a atom lab bmx F/F disc hub converter, for the rear wheel, should be able to pick up a burly disc front wheel from a friend. I don't really like the stickers that came on it that muck though.
