Sometimes i see same bike, but without the "highroad & Shimano" decals. One guy told me that thet were removable (decal). But mine are painted. Somebody got an answer to it?

I love it as it is, to be honest I like the decals... Team Htc High Road were a class act and I'm all for keeping the memory alive...

Just maybe loose the snow, no PB's been beat in those conditions... :D

Looks great. Why the frame change? You ride your new SL3, yet?

How's it compare to the R3 SL? I've always envied the R3 SL and SLC-SL.

The Sworks is more stiffer in the bracket. It seem like this bike is more agressive.
But with the bad weather, i can't ride it outside now.

All of my Highroad bikes are a mix of decals and decals under clear. The 'Highroad' and 'Shimano' decals are always under clear, while the SRM and rider name decals are over clear.

Use these:

And find some Ti hardware for the seatpost for some cheap-easy tuning.

QR skewers?

The HTC bikes always looked good to me. Those colors on the black frame just look good. :thumbup:
