Does anyone know if I will damage the wheel if I use some type of solvent to remove the glue after peeling the stickers off the rim?
They were just too big!!

Yeah, those thing look like disco stickers, just get some Goo Gone or similar citrus based cleaner and a rag. The gummy residue comes right off. I'd remove the tires first.

That is what I used on my Rolfs. Worked great. I like the 'naked' look better... although at speed the stickers look ok!!

Goes good with the bell bottomed shorts, platform Carnacs and lava lamp water bottle I have.

Do you use a generator or batteries for the lava lamp?

i have the opposite problem,i can't keep the stickers in the spokes. mavic sent me two new ones and i cleaned the spokes with simple green but about one week later they started to peel off.any ideas?

I'm not sure, but I think that Simple Green may leave a residue. Try wiping the spoke(s) down with isopropyl alcohol.

Use laquer thinner on spokes or rim before applying stickers, its a old painters trick. Try not to touch the area with your hands (they have oil on them), so use gloves.
Overkill?grz mnky

Yes, laquer thinner works well, but you run the risk of sometimes removing stuff that you didn't mean too. Acetone also works, but has the same problem. I'd advise using the least agresive stuff and save the big guns for when you really need them.

I've removed stickers from Mavic rims before by using dish detergent. It won't hurt anything.
