So, you've just purchased a wonderful new bicycle and love everything about it - except for the gaudy decals that serve no purpose other than to make your ride a prime target for theft. Not to worry, removing them is a simple process that will take less than an hour of your time.

Step 1: Apply heat to loosen adhesive

Using a heat gun or hairdryer, apply heat to the decal to loosen the adhesive.
What if I don't have a heat gun or hairdryer
A further thing to note, the decals on Surly bicycles are made to be easily removed. When I purchsed a Surly frame I was able to remove all decals with just an old bank card.
U said one direction lol
Nice Post regarding removing decals and stickers from a bicycle. <br> <br>It appears the bicycle did not have a clear coat of lacquer on it, which made removing the decal quite easy. I would also suggest a plastic razor blade to do the job (there are video demo&rsquo;s at www.decalstickerremover.com). The plastic razor blade won&rsquo;t damage the surface &ndash; unlike a metal razor blade <br> <br>If the bicycle does have a clear coat lacquer on it, there this would need to be peeled back before removing the decal (sticker) from the bicycle. The downside of this is the lacquer is a sealant that protects the bicycle frame from rust. If you bike is a nice new shiny model, I would recommend re-applying a lacquer, otherwise the frame might start to corrode in wet or damp weather <br> <br>Keep up the good posts <br>Regards, <br>Peter <br>
Nice. Always wanted to do this but assumed I'd leave a bunch of scratch marks on the frame.
