    Why should Nike make road bikes? So you can pay $3500 for the "Air Lance" that has 105 components?

    My stuff that has logos is all stock. I switched out a crank (Sampson Stratics no logo) and brakes (Shimano RX100), and added a Cannondale seat pack, water bottle, and cage. Adidas shoes, yellow Canari MS 150 jersey, Tinley shorts so old the logo is not readable. I'm getting some PI shorts in the mail though.

    And a Cateye Velo 2 mounted to my stem now! Why don't they all do that?

    Actually, I try and take every label that can be removed off. My surly has no decals on it whatsoever. My rims...cxp33, looking at them, no labels at all. Pedals...MKS, they were silver and I wanted them to match the black frame and wheels, so I painted them, now you cant tell what they are. For some reason I dont like the "rolling billboard" alot of bikes have.

    For example, I owned a 2004 Cannondale Cross bike....the thing must have had Cannondale decals in TEN different places. The worst part that they were under the clearcoat so there was nothing I could do about it. I eventually sold the bike.

    I advertise no one. My bikes are decal-less, cycling attires are plain solids. But if you look very hard, my chain has a bunch of 'sachs' engravings.

    I wonder if we have not stumbled upon a fundamental difference between "roadies" and "fixies"? Most "roadies" I know keep their bikes shiny new and will fret if a decal gets torn. "Fixies" will cover decals with stickers, tape, spray paint, etc. Who cares if my LeMond Poprad with full Ultegra looks like a dumpster bike? It still rides real nice.

    That's how I am too. If I can hide or remove it, I will. I have NO intention of being a rolling billboard.

    That goes for more than just bikes....I HATE clothes that have big labels (wouldn't wear TOMMY if you paid me). The last two vehicles I've owned, I made them take all emblems and ads off that were possible. The guy asks me "you mean the Autoway Toyota plate frame?". I said, "I mean the Autoway Toyota Plate Frame, the "toyota" embleme, the "highlander" emblem, the "v6" emblem on the side, etc.... After he picks up his jaw from the floor, he tells me that's the weirdest request he's ever heard. I said, "unless you plan to pay me for advertising, that's the deal".

    My Langster has this huge word SPECIALIZED on it, and the newest bike, a Specialized Transition, has SPECIALIZED all over it, and stupid swoopy things. I'm hoping to get some tape I had years ago, black car "detailing" tape, and cover up the logos, sheesh! And put a couple of those little stickers you get on fruit over the "105 flight deck" nonsense on the 2nd bike's brake levers.

    That's pretty hardcore. I can't stand those license plate frames and the dealer stickers. But I've never considered taking off the Toyota or the Camry labels. I did, however, remove the "LE" label, because I see no value in its meaning. What could possibly be so different amongst all the sub models?

    My front emblem came off once, and that looked bad until it was replaced.

    And of course the real joke is having to pay X times over the value of the clothing because it has someone's name on it.

    Yeah.....there are some that can't come off because they design them to really be part of the car body. On this SUV I had to leave the little circle toyota symbols on because they are not stuck on...they are pegged on, so removing them would not only leave an empty circle indention in truck, but holes as well.

    My previous car (Infiniti), which I made the same request on - I was forced to leave a strip on the back that had "Infiniti" written on it because it was designed to be a mold right on the body of the car itself.

    But....I get what I can taken off.

    I am so awesomely hip that I scratched off the name on my birth certificate so that I wouldn't be advertising my family's heritage! I hate being a rolling billboard because, let's face it, people talk and I'd hate for them to think that I was a corporate drone! I make all my clothes, manufacture all my parts (using tools that I made by hand, out of materials I invented, with the molecules from my own dead skin!!!), and only bathe with the soap made from pigs with no names! yawnnnnn

    I guess I don't mind the model of the car being shown, for example my Altima has just those metal letters on the trunk lid. BUT, the "Nissan" emblem is the actual trunk keyhole cover. Bastids!

    I saw a Wilier once that had "Wilier" on both sides of the frame in at least 5 places. Jesus Christ!! I guess I got disgusted with it, lost count, and walked away.

    I get the humor, but don't you get sick of seeing a logo or brand name plastered on everything - every where you go, including your bike?

    I do.

    No, that's why I don't get why people try so hard to hide it. The time spent caring about what logos are on something and then removing them can be better spent riding the bike.

    I suppose so, but if someone needs that relatively small amount of time so badly to ride, then their ass must be pretty lame to start with!

    You'll notice I said "someone" and "their", not "you" or "your". A general ballpark stereotyping blanket statement.

    The only place I have to tolerate seeing your ass or anyone else's, (lame or not) is when I'm drafting behind it in a paceline. Otherwise, it ain't happenin'.
