Hi All,

I'm after a set of Shimano RS10 decals with the 10 in GREEN.

Does anyone know where I could purchase such a thing???

Thanks!!

Chris

    Do you know if that is for one decal, or for the full set?

    I'm not sure, sorry. I'd contact the store directly, they should be able to advise further.

    Damn it!! Contacted them and they have been very helpful and quick to respond, but they have informed me this morning that there supplier no longer stocks the RS10 decals.

    Oh well... back to the drawing board!

    Just get some custom made - I had some big Felt ones made up for my wheels, and they cost around £20 IIRC for 8 of them, and they were big.

  • Am I being nasty if I say that spending money on decals for a set of budget wheels (that come at £89.99 at Merlin cycles) is really really really not worth it?

    Not nasty per se, and you could have a point, but I guess at the end of the day it's his cash, and if he wants green decals for the finishing touch to his bike, and it makes him happy then so be it :-)

    Gunnsie - if you want me to post some pics of the decals on my wheels just let me know.

    Until I am in the financial position to upgrade my wheels, or even bike, I am just trying to customise the bike and wheels I already have to my liking. Unless someone has a better set of wheels up for grabs for nothing, or very very cheap?? :wink:
