This is really hard to remove and the glue on my Zipp adds 12gr when it's dried, So I'd like to remove the glue before gluing a new tubular(Il lsave some grams)

I use the stuff you put in Zippo style lighters

I have had good success with Tufo Extreme glue tape--it sticks like the shite to the blanket, but is very hard to remove from the rim, since the clear plastic tape comes off, but leaves the glue on the rim. I am wary of using any solvent, as the carbon rim is basically carbon fibres in epoxy, which dissolves with solvent. I ended up spending 2 hours with a small curved knife and scraping it off, but a little carbon came off too, as you would expect.
So, what is the general concensus for removing old adhesive? Does anyone use solvent, over a long period of time?

cheers,

Ahh ok, almost the same thing you put in the car to make it advance? That's it?
I already tried it but you still have to rub/scrape much the rim to remove the glue and the last pieces of tubulars. It is in fact not really powerfull enough.

I use acetone. I thought zipp said it was ok to use on their rims. I don't really make it a habit of taking all the glue off. I just take off the big chunks and parts that don't look like the adheard correctly, then use the acetone to "clean" the top layer of glue.

You can pick up at most hardware stores. Comes in square metal container.
