I've got a set of new Ksyrium SLs, but really don't like the look of the graphics on the rim. I seem to recall someone on the board saying that they removed the decals. If you've done this, what did you use to do it?

Thanks.

I've ripped the decals of 3 sets. I think they look much better in basic black. Just pull them off, but you might need a little bit of adhesive remover to get the glue off. Pretty easy to do.

Sounds easy enough. Thanks. (nm)Psalm 147-10_11

Bought one set, Shimano hub. Liked it. Bought another for a different bike, Shimano. Bought a Campy bike, so needed another set, Campy hub. Sold a Shimano set, then.

You had to pay a lot of money for that decal. If you remove that decal it will be no different than any other reasonable well made wheel out there ;-)

Yeah but does the squeak go away if you remove the decals?
Eucalyptus oils works greatDutchy

I ripped off those cheesy stickers before I had even ridden the bike. They are too flashy for me. Eucalyptus oils works great and will clear your head at the same time.

I haven't had any squeaks with these wheels and they have spent considerable time underwater this winter.

CHEERS.
