Anyone tried the Fulcrum RACING QUATTRO CARBON clincher

Everything about building wheels, glueing tubs, etc.

Are the Stickers of the 2018 Version under the Coating or get it to removal?

I have had the Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon DB versions for about 11 months. I have had a couple of issues that I wonder if anyone else in the community has experienced:

1. After several visits to the LBS and the Fulcrum distributor, it seems impossible to remove a small amount of lateral side to side movement in the rear hub (it has been adjusted a number of times).

2. My LBS is just replacing the bearings on both wheels for the 2nd time this year (going with better quality this time). I have done around 7k kms so far this year. The LBS tells me the hubs are not sealed on the disc side which is allowing water into the bearings more readily. Not sure if this is common.

Anyone else experiencing either of these issues? Any ideas on solutions would be welcome.

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.
Just for anyone going through this process - use a hairdryer to heat the adhesive and it should come away with the decal. Follow the decal with the flow of hot air as you peel, and don't rush.

me too. Cost a few hundred more, but came with better hubs and black decals so I don't have to faff around with a hair dryer.
