I had my usual morning bike ride yesterday. Going home after about 1.5 hours, I noticed that my rim stickers (top part) were half gone because they get caught when I apply my brakes.
- Question 1: Is this a normal occurrence, or are my brake pads positioned too low;
- Question 2: Is it fine to replace the stickers, or have a rim skin installed?; or
- Question 3: Is it better to leave the rims naked?
Here's a picture of my bike:
You will notice that the top part of the rim sticker has skid marks on it due to the brakes.
