Does size matter...bike decal-wise?

2010 Bicycling Buyer's Guide issue has a Bike Snob article pertaining to
removing the size (and other saftey/warning) decals from frame.

So BF members, does size decal matter? On or Off?

I would be careful about removing decals. Over in the MTB forum, there was a whole thread about the little known load bearing decal.

I never understand people like the "Bike Snob" - the thing I love about cycling is the wide variety of riders and machines. Think about it, on a group ride you might encounter someone decked out in a full cycling team kit riding the latest zoot capri carbon fiber rig cruising alongside someone in a tee shirt on a 30-year downtube shifter dinosaur. Trying to institute litmus tests for who's cool and who isn't is infuriating to me. I think everyone who is out there riding their bike is cool and I consider them my sister or brother of the road!
