hi fellow enthusiasts

I am lucky enough to have stumbled upon the opportunity to own a set of bontrager XXX race lites

been a bit of a colour coordinated man, the red decals dont really match the black blue and white of my specialized tarmac.

i was wondering if anyone had any tips for safely removing the decals from the bike.

furthermore, any links/info about purchasing other decals

i like the decals from this years newly released bontrager xxx race lites (mines the 2009 model) and was wondering if anyone knew where i could get some?

cheers simon

Simon,

I own a pair of bontrager Aeolus 5.0 carbon rims and I hated the stickers they put on them (very garish). I prefer the simple carbon look. I took a hairdryer and heated them up and they literally just fell off. A quick rub down afterwards with some light solvent based liquid and they are like brand new.

As far as new stickers go I would suggest eBay or get them made up by a local sticker supplier if thats what you want to do. I got some name and country stickers made up for my bike case when travelling away and that was off eBay.

Best of luck.:D
