hi nap,
for the seatpost, just wet-sanded logos with 200grit to remove it. then sprayed a little clear back to cover the bare carbon. then wet-sanded again with 1000grit all over to lose the gloss. no more matte clear after.

for the stem, this is basically what rasmusic did to his ritchey stem on his canyon posted here in the gallery (thanks for the tip rasmusic!).
used paint remover, applied twice. stem is anodized black under the clear coat and decals.

Right! Fess up if you've been hotlinking Farm Lim's pictures. It's killed his bandwidth!

FL, any chance you could sort this please? I need your pic's for the WW Bike of the Year...

When you say you sanded and refinish those 50mm rims, what did you do to refinish them? Interested in your process.

Was it similar to what you did with the seatpost?

Those photos are fantastic. I'd love to know what you shot them at/with + your lighting technique.

also, the bike is stunning.
