    It's on the rim of my Mavic wheel:


    Avoid tramlines? Don't take the bike in the house? Fecked if I know!

    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.

    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.
