As long as your "uglying" doesn't involve denting the tubes, it's perfectly fine. Dents in tubes cause severe loss of structural integrity of the frame. Bad news for your investment. There do exist vinyl stickers that look like paint damage and rust. You can also get all artistic with a shredded piece of cardboard, some clear acrylic paint, and some actual rust that you sanded off of something. Put it in places where paint damage happens a lot. The sides of forks, top tube sides, chainstays, where your frame naturally gets bashed in the cities.I totally agree about removing stickers; leaving them on is just begging theives to go after your bike. I’m contemplating removing the head badge too, maybe I’ll modify it to pin on my jacket. What about “uglying” it up?
