Cleaning off adhesive and old glue...
Well, I was cleaning up an old Hed 700 disc tubular rim that had adhesive from old tape and decals on the face. I sprayed some carburetor cleaner on a rag, which always cuts that stuff right off, and drys quick....well, the rim had old tubular glue on it, so I wiped that too, and what do you know, with a good dowse and moderate pressure the old tubular glue wiped clean off.
I know it isn't necessary, but since it worked so well, now all I have to do is ruff scuff the rim before next application!
Just passing this along !
