Velo Orange Fender Logo

The orange logo on the Velo Orange fenders seems bright and annoying, especially on the bicycle I would add it too (all black and metallic).

What do you think? Is it visually bothersome, or can they be removed?

Thanks.

They're just little stickers. At least mine were.

Also, what's suggested? Biggest fender possible or fit-to-tire? I think I might want more tires in ~10,000 miles when my Marathon Supremes actually wear out. Also, I wouldn't put it past me to want to run big fun winter tires sometimes.

General rule of thumb is:

Tire width + 10mm = fender size. If you think you'll be running bigger tires, take that size and add 10 to it. Smaller tires wouldn't look as great, but fenders are there to keep you clean/dry.
