I am not a fan of the white tape and saddle but I can overlook it because the rest of the bike looks great :thumbup:

@DamoRider

White saddle and white tape is the "first time" for me and I have to say that I'm already contemplating getting black seat and black tape for this bike.

So I got new wheels. Question is if I should keep the logos on them or should I start removing ASAP :? BTW I still have my LW as per pictures on the first page of this post. This is only additional wheelset :P

I think the wheel decals tie in nicely with the white bar tape and saddle, so i vote keep them

I agree they tie in nicely but at the same time you've got an Italian dream machine with ho-hum wheels on it. My vote is lose 'em...

@Robroyski, what happened to the Lightweights? Why the change? Have to say, I prefer the Lightweights on this build.

I still have my Lightweights. These are just a "training wheels". I wanted nice clincher wheel for spring riding when our roads are full of gravel after winter and getting punctures is almost a daily event.

Ok, that makes sense. Think I'd lose the logos then. Not good to hear about the daily punctures with the Veloflex Carbons. I got a set for when my Continental Comps wear out or get destroyed to try out which I'm looking forward to. But they do seem like they'll be a lot more vulnerable to punctures than the Conti's.
