I just picked up a 2000 Factory in near mint condition and noticed the decals seem pretty weak and just stuck on with no clear coat over them. Is this normal and if so can anyone suggest a good way to keep them intact. The stem on one of the top tube tomatoes is starting to peal or dog ear. I Picked this up as built frame for $300, It had 8 speed grip shift that swapped to XTR 9 speed. I will try to get some picks posted after I swap control tech stem with a Ritchey Comp and put newer NOS 2003 XT cranks on. Came with Mavic Crossland tubless wheels and Avid Elixir 1 disc.
