I bought some second hand superbe pros w/ tires already on, however I got a flat almost immediately () and needed to get them replaced.
So, I pulled the tires off and discovered about a centimetre thick coating of glue around the entire rim. It looks like whoever owned the wheels before me has just placed layer upon layer upon layer of glue on the rims..
I took the first one to the bike store and the guy said he'd have a shot, then he rang me at the end of the day to tell me it took him 5 hours and if I wanted him to do the other one, I'd have to pay an hourly rate ($80 p/h) which I politely declined.
So... Can anyone give me some tips to take this stuff off?? The guy at the bike store said he used gasoline + a wire brush.
I'll upload a photo so you guys can see it and maybe give me a better idea..
