If so would you mind posting a pictures. I don't think I'm the only one that's curious to see what this looks like. Also pics of other wheels like the American classics sans stickers would be cool too.

Yanked the goofy disco stickers from the rims right away. I found that a little bit of "Goo Gone" made getting the sticky residue off a snap. Sorry, no pics available, but I really like the cleaner "stealth" look. I figure I don't need the attention and if it matters any one who knows wheels knows what they are.

Sorry, no pictures. Not hard to imagine what they look like. Black. More subdued.

nope, never had to. I'm kinda funny about paying $600 for pretty boy boutique wheels which stink in crosswinds, ride harsh, have mediocre aero qualities, aren't that light and basically are no better than a $250 pair of built open pros CXP-33's or velocity fusions. LOL :-)

Not clear from your message if you kept the stickers on your over priced pretty boy botique wheels or if you never bought a pair so you really don't know how they ride.

I have a 2002 Litespeed Vortex, immediatly took off the Litespeed and Vortex decals, and now after reading this thread (why didnt I think of this?) just took off the decals on the Mavic Kysriums. It looks super cool--the bike has black Contis 3000 with the black rims, black tape and sytem, seat and the industrial frame...now with the black rims...probably overkill but the bike looks real clean and unique.

Thanks for the tip. If I ever get a digital camera Ill post a pic
