WHAT? 3 hours? It took me like twenty minutes per wheel, and I was using a cruddy old folding hairdryer.RoadBikeVirgin said:I used a blow dryer on high heat, turned to low, and ran it over the decal for about a minute and a half. Peeled it away, but most of the time it'd leave plenty of glue residue. Then I just used slow, firm pressure with my thumb and rubbed it all off. Probably took around 3 and a half hours for both wheels!! Man, my thumb was raw the next day

The 2009 bikes will have new graphics:monocognizant said:+1 on the heat gun. Mine peeled right off with hardly any residue left on the wheel. It took me no more than a half hour to do both wheels. Now I almost wish I had left 2 per side of each wheel. Neuvation really needs to work on revamping the look of thier decals. Almost everyone seems to dislike them and remove them. That's alot of lost advertising in my opinion.
Not sure about the wheels, but I totally understand where you are coming from.John said:On the bike side we will be adding some different graphic options that I am working on now.
Simple white, yellow or even red lettering saying NEUVATION on the black rim would look sweet. Maybe slant the font a little so they look like they're moveing fast. :thumbsup:lalahsghost said:The 2009 bikes will have new graphics:

I took mine off all together but, I have seen people leave two on each side 180 degrees apart. That looks pretty good too.XR4Ti said:Not to hijack, but for those that are removing them (and I am about to do the same)...
are you taking off all the stickers or leaving some on? What kind of pattern? I'd prefer them not to be naked. I was thinking either leaving just one on or maybe a pair (adjacent or opposing).
