Removing stickers placed on your bike

I placed some stickers on my university commute bike to cheapen it up a bit but now want to remove them. It'd be a good cheap frame for someone.

(I'm converting my old mtn bike to a singlespeed )

So, my question is..what's the best way to remove the stickers?

I have heard that a blow dryer works well. You could also try Googone on a safe spot to make sure it doesn't bother the paint. I use that stuff alot.

Another vote for Goo Gone and a plastic putty knife.

I just built up a single speed, and I love it! It's definitely making me stronger and better at reading terrain.

I peeled off the stickers that came on the bike (like the LBS sticker)

For the residue, I used Park Tool CB2: . Mechanic at LBS across the street from my workplace also says nailpolish remover works... (that scares me!)

Rubbing alcohol and a washcloth should work, it won't run the risk of paint damage like nail polish remover.
