    Don't know about Blackwell. Last summer I bought a used pair of FSA carbon wheels and thought the stickers were ugly. They came off real easy only to reveal an even uglier wheel. So I bought some Zipp 404 decals and now I have a pair of Zipps. I wonder how many people will notice, and how many people will have the nerve to tell me they noticed.

    Eucalyptus oil. It dissolves the glue used in stickers/decals.

    Try heating the decals with a blowdryer then peel them off. A bit time-consuming, but worked like a charm for me.
