    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.

    WD40 and a rag. Goo gone would probably work better though. heat *** for stickers.

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