    Get a lighter, pass over the decals for 10 seconds. Scrape with a debit or other hard card. Done.

    I went a bit more n3rdy...I used a plastic case that holds one SD card. No heating needed.

    The decals remind me of the old water activated stickers that came with model airplanes.

    Took a bit to upload my steamroller. I love mine. I built the wheels myself, and they're the first set of wheels I've ever built. The front tire is an eyesore, but it was the only tire I had. definitely be replacing it soon.

    Just built it up...Absolutely love the charcoal gray color! Scored the frameset on the Bay for $230. It is in pristine condition. Front brake is in the mail. This will be my daily commuter. Can't wait to ride it in.

    ^Thanks. I robbed most of the parts off my Capo. Was really not an expensive build in the grand scheme of things. [said the guy with 6 bikes]

    I think surly might be my favorite mass-produced brand at the moment. All of their bikes just kinda make sense to me.

    haha yeah i thought those bars looked familiar...the capo is the only other place I have ever seen those bars. To be honest, I don't know how much I like them, but the bike as a whole looks amazing. Also, if you run into trouble keeping your wrap clean, I suggest fizik microtex. Doesn't get dirty. I have had the white one on my road bike for like 6 months.

    Just got the bike in the mail today and built it up. First bike really so I don't know what I am doing but this is it so far...



    Need a new seat, new bars because I don't like these drops, and I already put clips and straps on the pedals but that was after the pic.

    Also I stripped all the decals off.

    One other note. Do NOT BUY a Jow Blow Max II bike pump. What a piece of junk. I bought it at the LBS and they mostly sell road bikes so I figure I am safe but this thing even though it SAYS it does 120 PSI it's super hard to get it up to 100 PSI, and I can't get anything over that. Read some reviews after I bought it and apparently it has problems over like 80 PSI with road tires. Normally I read reviews before I buy something but I got the bike tonight and wanted to ride it so I just ran out and bought it at a store I trusted....

    i mean give the components a try before you replace them, but do whatever makes you happy.

    I have since put straps on and moved the seat up a bit. I am going to go to a LBS tomorrow and see what I can do about seat post options and maybe a new seat. The seat tilts up a bit, and has that big bump. If I slide it back it tilts way up, but its easier for me to get my ass where I want it then. If I slide the seat forward it does not tilt up as much bit still seems wrong. Really unhappy with the seat situation.

    ^^^Do you like your bars and saddle angled up like that? Looks like you could bring them down a little, but if it works for you then leave it alone.

    I actually think that looks nice, and wouldn't mind seeing it with two blue tires.

    I don't want to have a head on but oh god, I HAVE to fling myself into oncoming traffic to pass, theres no alternative!!!

    the seat doesnt angle down too much. My steamroller does the same, after messing around with it it's still the same haha. I'll get it how I like it and when i start to tighten it, it just goes right back up. I'll mess with it some more later.

    What saddle is one the steamroller ^^^?
