    it's on the rim: is it to do with wear?

    A warning there are no wear lines - only a thin coating of aluminium before you get through to the carbon fibre? :biggrin: Only a guess.

    When making paper aeroplanes, fold like this for good aerodynamics.

    Incorrect fitting can lead to gaps in teeth.

    Now serious:
    It means "don't peel off this sticker" - there is important information on it. The numbers 622*13 show you the size of your rim and let you to know what tyres are suitable for this rim.

    I think it means that the black anodized part of the rim is not to be used as a brake surface.

    Stoopid yes but you have to idiot proof stuff with vague disclaimers so you don't get sued.

    .. as opposed to getting sued because the label wasn't clear?

    Think it might be in the instruction manual.

    Which a customer failed to read, so it would still not be the manufacturers fault.
