Stans rim decals should be removed. Yay or nay?
Just destickered yesterday! Reasons 3 fold: the recent thread with before/after piccies, the Stan stickers on the rear looked tatty after I rode home with a flat, I’ve DT rims up front so mismatchtastic. The Stans came straight off, very cleanly, the DTs left a very sticky residue which was a swine!Posted 4 years agomrblobbyMember

Mini off topic rant… purchased a bin from John Lewis the other day which had a massive sticker on it. Getting the bugger off involved about half an hour of steaming it with a kettle, then a load of white spirits to finish the job. Why do they use a glue in such applications that makes it such a PITA?!
The Stans ones do look like they’d come off pretty easily though, I’ve a couple of rims where the decals are peeling at the edges.Posted 4 years agolondonerinozMember
Nay, mainly because I generally like the aesthetics of the products I buy, and I’m not a murdered out/stealth fan.
Tyre logos seem to have got bigger though which can clash quite badly with rim decals. I particularly dislike Maxxis who don’t seem to be capable of evenly spacing their logos or maintaining a standard font size between different tyre sizes or models.Posted 4 years agonedrapierSubscriber

Good point. I was taking mine off anyway, but Conti orange and Stans red don’t go well together.
Then njee said you can get the tyre logos off too with IPA (the stronger, less tasty one) and a rag. I took a couple of square inches down to the white substrate and realised there wsa no way I had the inclination to finish the job on that one, let alone the other 7.
Looks terrible now. Pfff.Posted 4 years ago
