    Here's the 10.3 with the Corima's. They're just perfect, they've been really well taken care of. There is no de-lamination, the brake track shows little wear, the tires are like new, and the bearings are smooth. The cassette and freewheel are new. Then only things that look aged at all are the decals. I put Koolstop Salmons on the brakes. Of course I have to try it out, so there will be a short ride tomorrow - nothing strenuous! If all goes well, I will race these wheels at PSG.

    AzT, thanks! Hopefully it will feel as good as it looks.

    Looks really good. I'd remove the decals.

    I would too. But then I'm the type that removes everything that can cleanly be removed, unless I think I might be selling later. But with the black and white bike, the wheels would look much better bare.

    I agree with both of you. I think it would require heat? Anyway, after the PSG I'll do that. The new Corima lettering is white, by the way. Much better!

    They usually just peel right off. Just do it slowly and try to keep it all in one piece as much as possible. Goo Gone will take care of any residue.

    I don't think these will. They're more like decals, not stickers. I tried to get a fingernail under the corner of one yesterday, and couldn't.

    Yeup, tubulars are different! I had to look down to be sure I hadn't switched bikes. It's smoother, way twitchier, and it accelerates in a very deceiving way - it gets going quicker than I am used to. Those tubies surely give a smooth ride - not quite plush, but close. Now, if I could just get that RD dialed in....

    Sara, if the decals/emblems are covered by some sort of protective lacquer, then I wouldn't mess with them. If you could take some macro shots of the decal we might be able to advise you further. My Zipp decals came off with a razor and Goo-Gone, about an hour per wheel.

    So what's up with your RD?

    My RD was just out of whack, it seems to be fine now. Operator adjustment error!



    The decal doesn't appear to be under a clear coat of any kind. They are brittle, and I'm pretty sure they're true decals and not stickies.
