I removed the labels from my TREK by slowly pulling them off. Try to get the adhesive to come off with the label. What adhesive is left, just use some warm water and a soft rag and lightly rub. I left the labels ( serial number and something else?? ) on the bottom of the bottom bracket. Good thing I did. With TREK, when you register the bike for any warranty claims. TREK mentions that the serial # label has got to be on the bike for a valid claim.
Edit: Just looked to see where I had read about the serial # being in place for a warranty claim. It is actually on the serial # sticker on the bottom bracket. It says warranty is void if removed. However, this sticker is under the clear coat.
