How difficult was it to remove the logos from the bars? Did you need to re-clear coat them afterwards?

no clearcoat needed. just abit of light wet-sanding following by body shop cutting paste and a rag to restore the gloss. obviously the key is not to sand through all of the lacquer :thumbup:

took about 20 mins.

Very nice, on the post shim I encourage you to get the proper WR Compositi seatpost. I only had problems on my XCr frame (creaking etc...) after trying two different shims. Finally bought the right post, no more issue.

looks very classy

if you need black cable guides you should look for campagnolo mirage/veloce version
they are plastic but have metal thread inside

spam alert

saw some here:
