    Tips for removing old head badges...

    I have the old stick on head tube badge and thought I'd get one of the new ones from Turner when I order the new rockers, but I can't get the old one off without destroying it. Any tips, or do I just need to man up and rip it off? I thought it would look cool reattached to my workstand.
    I once corrected DW about a bicycle related topic.

    Use a heat gun to soften up the double stick tape, then either use a thin wire / cable to work it off from behind (think a cheese slicer) or a plastic putty knife & work it off. Get it hot enough & it should come off easy.

    30 lb monofilament under the badge.

    Thanks guys, great suggestions. I've got some 80# monofilament that I'll give a whirl after heating up the badge.

    and maybe A little goo be gone or brake cleaner to get up the residue.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    the three i've had all just fell off not exactly the best design aspect of a turner. they now live happily on my tool box along with all my other stickers (except the the ICT stickers, which i did terrible and unspeakable things to )

    chase the residual glue on the headtube with a little 'bestine' and it'll be ready to go.

    if the included drill bit, screws and torx wrench dont please ya, try any combination or solo use of nails, zip ties, duct tape, bailing wire and a old toe strap.
