I was replacing a set of brakes on my road bike and I noticed the originals have a postage stamp sized piece of tape on one of the caliper arms. Kind of where the other caliper arm crosses it.
Then I noticed my new brake had the same thing as well.
It's about half off on one of my brakes. Is this just for shipping or what? What happens if it falls off. Is that a problem?
Here's where the "tape" is (it's more like a piece of plastic that is glued lightly on the back caliper arm -- immediately behind the front caliper arm.)
