Cool. Thanks for the info.PaleAleYum said:Just did that last week. Apply the heat to the shifter posts, not the tubing. work the heat around post to heat evenly. Use a pair of pliers to pull/twist off the posts. Clean up the remainder of the brazing with a fine tooth file and then sandpaper. I used a oxy-acetylene torch in order to concentrate the heat on the fitting, not the tubes. I did the same to remove the brake guides as well. Go slowly, if you heat the tubing, you can take the heat treating out of it.
Strip the frame & repaint.
I would think that you could take them right off with a dremel. Maybe sand smooth and fill (and sand again) before sending for color?FrontRanger said:Converting an old schwinn into a fixie and want to remove the shifter bosses/brazeons or whatever they are. Any recommendations? I plan on having the frame powder coated so I would like to remove them first.
