How many grams to shave by removing the decals?

Acetone is indeed the best way to remove decals, but as bikemesenger pointed out that is indeed only a few grams. Plus as Captain Wilier already pointed out, it'll make me very sad if those decals go away. :-(

Congrats on your new toy though and have fun with this WW project. :thumbup:

complete nutter.

the decal weight will equal the weight of road dirt in about 50km, unless he actually doesn't ride the bike.

I wouldn't have taken the decals off for 4 grams, but maybe that's just me :noidea:
Sounds like you have some project going on! Do you already have a full build list?

I wonder what inflating the tyres with Helium would save..........perhaps 1/2 a sticker??
