What could go Wrong?


Is there anything that could go wrong with taking this sticker off the rotor?

Off hand, I can think of a few semi regular posters that could screw anything up.
One has no idea of your competence.

Flipping the bike upside down and letting the brake fluid drool out.

Probably not. As long as the wheel isn't turning when you try to remove it.

I think the furniture sticker police will come and take you away. They do double as rotor sticker patrol. Andy (showing his age)

Yeah, pretty much a bad idea see:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly_effect

That being said that requires a deterministic universe. If the universe is not deterministic, perhaps you can get away with it. Up to you.

As long as you take the sticker off correctly using the approved Shimano tools you will be fine. Otherwise you might void the sicker warranty.

I wouldn't risk it as disc rotors are well known for chopping off limbs, that is at least what the UCI used to believe. You never know.

Put your bike in a cardboard box. Seal it up. At this point, you can't say whether the sticker is on or off. Heinieburn's uncertainty principle tells us it's both. Just concentrate on the alternative in which the sticker is not on the disk. Et voila.

Don't touch the rotor surface. Seriously, oil from your hand can completely destroy your breaking power.

in total seriousness, a while back, my dad saw that the sticker tag had been cut off his new hospital type bed electric bed mattress and told me in all seriousness that this was illegal.

so I really did get a chuckle from your comment
