    I have a Trek that has a sticker on the cross frame bar. I transport
    my bike on a hitch mounted rack of the inverted L-shape variety, which
    are quite common. This is a new bike, but after trips to the
    Sacramento century and Mount Shaster (both four or five hours long)
    the top frame sticker has become badly crinkled and split.

    I note my mate's Cannondale and my mountain bike don't have stickers
    on the top frame! I doubt it can be fixed, but how easy are these
    things to remove and what would that do to the paint finish? Any
    recommendations on how to go about it?
