I know, but their under the lacquer. If you want a 865g frame you get the stickers too.

Not sure about removing the stickers from the wheels.

Bruiser, you spent so much time getting this bike together: remove them from the wheels....please!!!
I don't know if all that contrast is worse standing still or spinning.... 8)
Either that, or put some stickers on seatstays, stem, seatpost, saddle, hoods ( do they make stickers for bar tape???). :P

Stickers will peel right off the wheels. They are pretty thin, so go slowly or they will tear or break and you'll have to start again each time. The other benefit (besides getting some understated elegance) is that you will lighten the wheels by about 15g (at least that is what I got on my FSA RD-400 wheels) when all that vinyl is removed. And it comes from the most important part of the wheel.

I inverted the stem to make it more comfy. A low stem is fine for crits etc., but I wanted a comfier position to turned it over *nods* Doesn't look pretty but works! I figure if it's good enough for David Millar, then it's good enough for me!
