Yah, maybe just peel off the stickers. Think of it as an OCD diet plan for your wheels.

And at risk of peeing on your parade, I think doing so would actually make your bike look a lot better.

Actually this is exactly how i like it or i would not have dropped 3k on them. I could have easily bought them without the decals, however the decals sold them for me.

Dude, this is the 50+ forum. Not all of us can -- or should -- have our handlebars down at knee level.
