Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Can you remove decals on Alex DA-22 rims?

Wondering, thanks!

every alex rim i've seen has had a very simple decal that would come off with fingernails in five minutes flat, 1 minute with goo gone.

Real talk-- these things are straight stickers. 5 minutes? Try 5 seconds and no goo gone. No residue, just a clean peel. Don't hesitate on the rims because of the corny stickers. I did, and felt like a dummy after riding them for two days when I realized they come right off.
