Just put on a pair of new SSC SLs, and I made a list of stickers.

1 all the way around the hub, front and back............2
8 on each rim........................................................16
2 on a spoke (left and right), front and back.............4
1 bar code (factory sticker), front and back..............2
_____________________________________________________
Total stickers: 24

This doesn't even count the other 4 stickers the bike shop put on, one for the price, the other for the part#, on each wheel.

What do they weigh? Just peel them off...

While you are at it, why not cut the spokes out and save some more! :roll: :)

No I haven't, NS, but I'm glad I could be of some help.

Have you removed the stickers? What was their weight?

I've removed a few of the stickers; didn't bother to weigh them. No offense to the WWs, but that wasn't really my point. It was the sheer gawdy number of them! Advertising with all the subtlety of a sledge hammer.
