    Are they decals or are they embossed? Are they really that much more annoying than most other wheel graphics?

    I don't know about the warranty. That would depend on how likely you think you are to make a claim someday, Aesthetically speaking, though, I'd remove them especially if we're just talking about decals. They pull too much focus from that sexy, sexy frame.

    Status of what ? They are Fulcrums,not Lightweights. I like total black,if i’ll ever put Vittorias with grey walls they’ll turn the whole thing into a giant cluster****

    Just found out they are embossed anyway,problem solved.

    Well, to go with a frame like Colnago, wouldn't Roval or Zipp be considered more matching wheels, status wise? 8zs.gif

    It's not the stickers, as much as it's the adhesive left behind, that should dictate your decision. FWIW, with, and "with less" pics. "Without" would have taken far more time and effort than I was willing to spend:

    If they are peel and stick transfers, i would probably remove them. For me eyes, they definitely don't add to the visual appeal of the bike, and they certainly could be detracting.

    Cleaning up the adhesive is pretty straight forward with some goo gone or similar sticky stuff remover.

    Fulcrum is wholly owned by Campagnolo. You could put some of these on in a trendy subdued matte dark gray...

    Take them off in a year. :-)

    For the record, I think they look fine as-is.

    Don't be a tool. You can't trash an italian bike with non italian parts...
