FSA and Vision dominate the market for the worst graphics in the industry. FSA, by far the worst in color graphics, while Vision does it bad in greyscale. Is there anyway I can remove the Vision graphic from this bar? If yes, what would be the easiest method? Thanks!

Worst graphics and funky looks.

Goof off, acetone, nailpolish remover, etc. If it's under the clearcoat, then wet sand it.

Even if you remove the graphics, the stem will still look hideous: your best bet is to replace it with something normal looking.

If it’s carbon then acetone won’t work. Fine grit sandpaper and a whole lot of time.

No need to remove decals now. The brand new POS bar cracked on a 30 mile ride yesterday. This is a second Vision Metron 5D bar that has cracked on two different bikes.
