The new decals look very understated, which I suppose is in response to what some consider the boldness of the old decals. I like both, though I'm used to the old, so anything else looks not genuine.

I like both. The understated ones like the one above look really good on conservative colors (black, white, grey). The older, larger ones look good on the brighter colors, (red, yellow). The frame type is another factor, IMO. I think the Sport looks sharp with the older, bolder decals. But the Fastlane, Crosshairs, Hyper X, and the Grand Tour look better with the understated decals, IMO.
