I like my bike but it just has the brand all over it. its too much. Does any one know how can I remove the Bianchi logos on bike and fork? Its carbon frame and fork with a black matt finish. They don't look/feel like stickers.
what he said, or have the whole frame painted. Whichever, it will either cost a bunch or look terrible (or both). You're right that they're not stickers. They're decals that are put on, and then the clear coat applied over them. Best idea might be to try to get used to it, or stop looking at it so much.
You can use a sharpie to carefully make all the white parts gloss black. It'd be a cool, very subdued look to have a matte black finish with black outlines of the logos. You'd only see them up close. Similar to the stock finish on my Santa Cruz.
Well duct tape and stickers are not acceptable. It doesn't look like its clear coated and my understanding is the clear coat doesn't come in matt.
I like the idea of painted them black but not with a sharpie. Maybe there is another option.
Lots of carbon bikes with matte clear coat, with or without the decals underneath the clear coat. Calfee and Giant come to mind. Most of the things you can do to remove the decals or diminish their presence won't be pretty.
If they're paint, you can sand them off using a block. A block helps ensure that only the high points are removed and minimizes sanding into the adjacent material. The entire frame will then need to be sanded and clear-coated (gloss or matte). It's doable, but it's a lot of work.
