    Removing adhesive

    What do you guys use to remove adhesive from your bike?

    E.g. bar tape residue, stickers on wheels, etc...

    Try using lint-rollers, tear off a sheet (plastic sheets, I haven't tried paper ones), and you can use it to pull off the adhesive (that hasn't already collected tons of lint/dust and become inadhesive).

    Add in WD40, dishsoap and nail polish remover and you have most of the items I have used.

    I use a hair dryer to heat up stubborn stickers. Finger nail polish remover to take off the leftover adhesive.

    Or just go to the hardware store and buy anything that's labeled "adhesive remover".
