When I got my 2007 three years ago, everything was in fine shape except the wheels. What I ended up doing was very labor intensive, but it worked. I took a product called White Diamonds and started with 2000 grit wet-dry sandpaper, then wend to 2500, and finished with 3000 grit. Then White Diamonds with a coarse washcloth. This process got my wheels into a condition that I was very happy with and have been able to maintain.
Good luck.

Thank you, the more I read and think about, that's about what I'll do. I'm thing I'm going to remove the back wheel to get it done.

It seems far more intimidating and difficult than it really is to remove the wheels from these bikes...
Here's what I followed, quite simple really...

Thanks Nate. Sooner or later, I'm going to have to do this. It's winter in Minnesota and this is probably a good time give it a whirl. What I love about it all is, there's such great "how to" tutorials out there for this bike. And there's all this collective wisdom here, like you, should I have any questions. Thanks.

If I leave the wheels on the bike and use something like that - I'll sling that stuff all over the bike.... the car parked next to it.... the garage wall, ceiling, floor..... the cats.....
