Can I just say that, after that awesome story about IF and apples, this comment is pretty incongruous? I actually laughed out loud when I read it.

Spoke with IF and they said to use masking tape and run it across the decals trying different angles. That is how they take decals off of bare metal. He said heat might bake it on, but not too sure about that.

No worries man, I know exactly who has it and when he is ready to sell it I was promised first crack. So maybe some day, but I hope he rides it into the ground...that is what is for right!

There is also a really groovy ti cross bike with the apple on it. Was my team bike for the grassroots stint I had. I never got to ride that one, but man it was sweet looking.

love the apple story! maybe not everyone does, but for sure some of us (me included) have cheese ball moments or inside jokes with our significant others that mean a ton to us but nothing to the rest of the world. the stories of these moments rarely come across well to others. you did yours justice, and I applaud you.

and as far as the decals/heat goes... I'd try that if your fork weren't painted, as I've used heat to remove tubular glue from carbon rims before (very low heat though) and decal adhesive's gotta be less gnarly than tubular glue. my fear would be the heat messing up the paint. I know nothing about that world though.

Thank you for the words that is all too kind.


I headed the grand advice of CJ and used my wife's hair dryer, a park tool blue tire lever and some goo be gone and sure enough they came off!

Will get some decent pics soon and update this post.


Cheers


Dave

That was the funniest story on the internet. Too bad the Moots Forum was taken over by CIA bots.

Very happy for you Dave. Btw, I'm a sucker for Disney love stories. Maybe there is a Lady & Tramp V2 in the future for you. Enjoy and hope to see you on the road.

Very pretty frame! Looking forward to seeing you out on the road, errr course.

I the 1980s, I was in Italy. I had Mr. Pinarello make a bike for me. He fixed me up with his daughter, who was trying to learn English. In a fit of downsizing about a decade ago, I sold it on ebay. I've regretted it since. I still hope to find it again. Your story, gives me hope.

Done...until I can find my orange saddle.

BTW, the train track that this is on is right behind my house. City just voted to turn it into a 9+mile long 14 feet wide paved trail. Property value just went up! woohoo!

Great looking build and congrats on the new trail behind your house! They did that to ours 20+ years ago and it's been nice to have
