My Quattros were supposed to be delivered today but I wasn't home. Ughhh. So I need to go to the post office tomorrow morning to pick it up. I'm planning on removing the ugly stickers.


As you can see from my post earlier of the Merckx, they look fantastic with the decals removed- the clear coat looks great.

How wide are the 28mm Corsa’s?

On these rims that are 17mm internal they are 28mm measured.

My wheels are 1,475g. with the stickers. I got the stickers off. That was the easy part. Now the gluey gunk is tightly adhered to the rim. Oh Lord. The wheels definitely look awesome without the stickers. Getting the glue off will be a major pain in the ass. I'm letting the glue dry out overnight and see what happens tomorrow.

I finished removing the stickers. There were twelve of them! I already have some acetone on hand so I used it. It worked well enough but it took three hours per wheel. The nude wheels definitely look awesome. Total weight without the stickers is 1,462g., which is one gram less than my Bora 50's. Today's a rainy day so I won't be trying them until tomorrow or Wednesday.

If I get a disc bike I would definitely go for the disk version of this wheelset.

3 hours for 13g!

But I guess you like the look without the stickers. Personally I like the stickers and branding, even if stickers are not as nice as the water transfer decals on Boras.

I continue to be impressed by these wheels. They really are exceptional VFM.

Im looking forward into riding mine in the spring. I just purchased a used pair which was used with thruaxles. I got some adapters since I ride with qr but damn that's a puzzle. They look good through :-).

Just FYI... Boras do not have a clear coat or lacquer on them. They come out of the mold like that. The current Bora decals use a water transfer process for application but there is no clear coat over top. Prior to this the decals were rather thick adhesive vinyl type stickers that could be peeled off. I am not familiar with the Fulcrum decals or their application.
