Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Hey guys,

Any tricks to help remove old glue from carbon wheels? Any advice would be much appreciated!

You could use a piece of cloth dipped in petrol or white spirit to rub down the rim bed.
The glue will soften after a few minutes.

Ciao, :wink:

I have heard paint thinner works, but have yet to try it. However, I would be hesitant to try it with carbon wheels. In the past I have used a head gun and an old butter knife and got most of it off with out doing any damage to my rims.

My LBS uses contact cement remover. Works well but is quite a lot of effort.
