    That looks pretty awesome! How did he do that? Is it just laid over...or was it actually sanded down? The clear that Easton uses looks pretty thick.

    Those aren't ghost decals; acetone + elbow grease got it done. Once you get a section of the decals beginning to peel, its much easier afterwards. Just continue to rub acetone over the corresponding letters to weaken the clear coat and peel away.

    Correct, both by the Official Rules - Rule 17 and the (inferior) Rules of Velominati - Rule 8

    Nice bike, by the way.

    First, I don't know for certain if my caution is applicable to the resins used in carbon lay-up, but I know first hand the damage Acetone can do to ABS and other plastics. It may not be noticed with the eye, but after exposure to Acetone plastics become brittle. Based on my experience with plastics, I would avoid the use of Acetone on composites.

    Feel free to show me other wise.

    I agree, they really pop. That bike is timelessly gorgeous and sharply modern all at once.

    i picked this up today for $475. its an '08 bikesdirect motobecane le champion, ultegra front derailleur and shifters, the rest is a 9-speed dura ace set. i'm hoping to make this a more commuter oriented bike, so I'm probably going to try and sell the spinergys. i am completely new to road bikes, so can anyone chime in and let me know if this was a good find?

    Just a simple Trek 1.2 with 105 pedals, GP4000s tires and a new specialized saddle. I'm thinking of changing the bar tape to something other than white, but I really don't want to buy another saddle to make it match.

    If he doesn't, I'm sure the wheels will get rid of themselves. I think I've read some things somewhere, concluding these wheels to be pretty scary.
