    Could you "desticker" the wheels? Looks like it is already coming off on the "left hand" spoke at the front.
    The chain looks too short.
    Otherwise, very nice.
    The blue hoops on the frame are luverley. Like the cheeky Look sticker on the seat tube too!

    Chain looks fine, it's in one of the big-big gears so rear mech extended.

    Destickering those discs is a nightmare - I did it myself once, took hours of scraping :x

    Think it looks good. Purposeful. As a TT bike should.

    It would look even better with the wheels de-stickered but it is a royal pain in the bum. Usually the sticker comes off fine and leaves the glue, which is always horrible!
  • where it is coming off was my attempt/trial at destickering, has left some residue, so thought better of it :(
    the look sticker is supposed to be read by the people i overtake, though normally read when im overtaken :P haha
    yeah the chain is annoying, its the longest it can go as otherwise issues in the granny gear :(

    If you are going to take stickers off, I wouldn't be pushed for either way, scrub the glue with white spirit/petrol and it all come off the rinse the wheels with water after :)

    if you want to get the glue off after you have taken the stickers off , use something called "sticky stuff remover"
    google it, sometimes I see it in aldi, at about a fiver a tub, im a carpet fitter and we use it quite often , theres nothing that it cant remove.
    hope this helps somewhat
  • @sarm34 many thanks it worked a treat :D
    @lizzylad84 its dura ace 7700 throughout, fsa octalink cranks with rotor qrings, oval concept bars, deda 140mm stem, profile design saddle (comfiest ive ever tried) with corima clincher disc and 4 spoke on michelin pro4's
    the frame is for sale if your interested as its too small for me and have a replacement :)
  • being used over the weekend with destickered wheels
  • Very nice with the stickers gone.

    Very cool - even better without the stickers on the wheels.
