Hi there,

I bought some 3T Ergonova Team handlebars (the normal red version) off of ebay recently. The colour scheme on my build has changed dramatically and the the thought of having a big red stripe on the handlebars is a big no-no. So I was wondering rather than having to sell these on and wait for a pair of rarer/more expensive 3T Team stealth/3T LTD to appear on the market I thought I could try getting rid of the red myself and go for a nude carbon look.

So I was wondering whether anyone had any tips and/or advice for removing the paint? Or specifically anyone who has done this before on a pair of 3T bars.

Many Thanks

I'm thinking of using 3t forks, bars & stem on my next build. Problem is they only do the Stealth finish on the carbon version of their bars.

Has anyone removed the graphics on 3T bars?
