The solution is almost always more throttle!

Kind of a pain to install but I got the hang of it halfway through. Just take your time I thought maybe I could do it with the wheels on the bike but no way. And I knicked my rear rim because the rear caliper was stuck in the slider. Highly recommend taping off the rear rim and top of the caliper before removal and reinstall.

Started to but that would be way to tedious and frustrating I don't think you will ever get them lined up the way you want on the bike. I guess you could do the outer rim tape maybe and get it right but the inner rim ones will be a serious pita.

I messed up one of the inner rim stickers and one of the stripes but the company sent one extra of each inner and 2 extra stripes.
