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.

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
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??
Updated: Racing again! Thought this was unlikely! Eventually, I may even have a decent race!
Edit: 2015: darn near won the best South Island series (got second in age
