How to Remove Decals from a Surly Bike

Here is an example of how to get Surly graphics off of the frames. 

Surly uses traditional wet decals but doesn’t clear coat over them, so this method works perfectly. It should also work with any bikes that use similar decals. 

For this project, you just need some gorilla tape. If you don’t have gorilla tape, traditional duct tape should also work, however Gorilla tape is stickier.  

Make Sure the Tape Fully Covers the Decal, Grip It, and Rip It

Take a strip, stick it right over the graphics, rub it down on the sticker, and peel it off. That’s it! Now you have a fresh looking bike that is a step closer to being ready for painting or decoration.
