Any one have experience removing the logos on the red cranks?
I tried acetone............ nothing, looks like I will have to wet sand it.

If your brave you can sand the arm down with 500 grit, and then follow with 1000 grit to smooth it out. Once your done, spray it with a urethane (minwax sealer works good, you can buy it at home depot) and you should be good to go.

a very good idea. match the newly black crankset with some stronglight chainrings for a much less industrial look.

I run campy record, but not the cranks. I have the stronglight chain rings already to go, I just need to get rid of the logos. I will let you know how the sanding goes and will post pics later. I would like a matte finish I think.

Anyone do this? I'm interested in removing the graphics from my Red cranks. Sounds easy in theory.

edit; never mind, this thread has the details I'm looking for:

I removed the logos from my RED cranks by wet-sanding. I preferred the matte finish so I just used a wax. I also removed the logos from the Edge seatpost and stem.

How thick is the clearcoat? I would assume pretty thin. Let us know how it goes.

It did not take that long to do. I think I started wet sanding with 400 grit sand paper and finished with extra fine steel wool.
There is a razor blade technique that sounds like it may save lots of time as well.

Edit...
I did not put a clear coat on it. I did put some car wax on it for the first few months but that was about it. This is on my bad weather bike. So it gets the brunt of the winter riding with lots of road salt.
I don't think the wax or any clear coat is necessary. It still looks the same.
