Rawed the frame. Re using almost all of the parts bar new seat/post, brakeset, headset, seat clamp and chain tensioners. Will be silver/black when I build it back up. All the parts are sitting there... just need to finish an assignment then I'll do it Madder

industrial strength paint stripper... paint it on with a brush, let it do its work then pressure wash off the paint. Took 4 applications to get it all off. SLX cranks are rad... I have another set on my 4x bike

I used the same thing with steel wool to strip the rear of my Yess frames,was hopeful you had an easier way.

it was very very easy for me.... was going to use steel wool at first but wasnt necessary... the paint was literally falling off. My buddy who I did it with said he did the stripper + steel wool previously and didnt work as well. I bought the strongest paint stripper I could find
