    Thanks for all that information, exactly what I needed to know!

    I thought that because of having a Rotex and a soft pad I could use it also for round tubes. Apparently I only used it for wood so far, and the abrasives are only available in packs of 50 (could stencils other ones though). And there are great tutorial PDFs from Festool for various applications.

    I think I couldn't do the whole process for my own, even if I really would like to do so and learn things. Long time ago I painted um ah ... bicycle frames, so I am interested always in varnish and paint in general. PM incoming then!

    Don't know if good here to ask but I'll go anyway with a question asked since 2005 in the internet:

    Haveing stickers under clearcoat, which are lifting / braking (including the clearcoat above) I would need to buy for my Festool Rotex RO90 P1500 and P100o abrasive, to remove the clearcoat, then remove the stickers, spray paint clearcoat, again use abrasive and later polish with lambskin and polish. Is this somehow doable and get a not perfect but OK job done?

    Problem is that all the abrasives (each pack of 50), and polish tools for my Rotex would be about £ 130, maybe 150. Or should I leave it and wait and save money, and maybe get a new spray paint – which I wanted to do anyways at some point?

    Like a cloud, or cutouts are also possible like a face of a smiley, sun or so?

    I don’t know which are easier, but I thought that maybe both options aren’t done in half an hour so money isn’t thrown away.

    Maybe the time you spend to mount them and how long they will stay there justify the extra cost.

    A while ago I ordered in the internet yellow 3M sticker sheets (I think knock-offs), and at work we have a plotter, some printers, and stuff like that. Basically I got inspired by a brand who are selling such stickers.

    Now I am playing with some designs, what would be good; size, form, etc. Maybe someone has some input?

    I rode with one of them some days, so they stay were they are on the spokes.

    Also: winter time soon!

    I could imagine making some, and like £/€/$ 1 for me, £/€/$ 2 for LFGSS and the rest for the transportation.

    Argh, OK, it should take it's time, but they're pretty slow right now. Funny is that I ordered the wrong size of Loopbacks supercheap at bike24, wanted to cancel maybe some hours later on Sunday, but they sent it and it was here today. Rapha didn't even sent their order out meanwhile.

    I can’t say anything about puncture protection, but riding the DTH since 2 weeks now my feelings are kind of meh. Maybe I am just only liking more slick type tyres, but I expected that those DTH roll better, missing softness, don’t know what it is. Are there ~ 2.1-2.3 26” slicks beside Kojaks and expensive René / Compass tyres? Rat Trap Pass sound awesome, but again expensive. Also in black only available in super light edition.

    Am I just missing a smooth tubeless slick setup?
