Please excuse my rudimentary Photoshop skillz.

Should I remove the stickers from my wheels or stick with them, see what I did there?

Cant make up my mind, think its too busy at the minute though.

    If you ride it fast enough no-one will be able to see them anyway.

    Ha! No danger of that, first world problems I realize but just wanted to ask. :)

  • Looks way better without - but - I much prefer everything without logos, writing or labels on it much classier look. If I have to use anything with a manufacturers logo or name on it I feel they should be paying me to advertise for them.

    The wheels look dope with the stickers, but the lovely frame is emphasised without them & the whole set up looks cooler. Without for me.

    Without. Recently De-stickered my Attacks and saved all of 13 grams! Stealth wheels are in this year.

    If you can't tell whether you prefer the look of something or not, why make the decision on the back of what a bunch of random people say.

    Of course, de-sticker the wheels :)

    (It would also look better without the deep rims and without the shimano groupset. Also, the saddle design is spoiling the lines, no fork logos would be better and there are too many cable slap rubber thingies under the top-tube)

    If you do one thing and nothing else though, the dust caps need putting on a mountain bike or in the bin where they belong.

    Supergoose, there's a photo of my Burls delogoed in the "your bikes" section. I'd vote to de-logo the wheels. Or have you done it already?

    Keep them as they are. No point in having bling wheels if they don't look bling.

    Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover is good on stickers, pat it on with kitchen roll to make the stickers a bit wet and even shiny ones are quite easy to peel off after 5 mins, just need to be patient for the 5 mins as at first it doesn't seem to work. I've never used any elbow grease at all when doing this.

    Badly designed stickers are hardly bling, they just look naff, unless you see these as well designed and bling, it appears you do?

    Heat them up with a hair dryer, generally they'll pull off very easily, then no elbow grease necessary!

    I don't object to the stickers. As far as stickers on wheels go, they are not the worst design I've seen and are not jarring. I've seen worse on Zipp and HED. Perhaps you could clarify why these are "badly designed"?
