    I don't have the plastic disc on either.... but.....

    Just had a brainwave.....

    I'll go about it this way....


    Hi Guys and Gals....

    I've just got myself a new bike and was wondering if I could take that ugly plastic disc thing off the rear wheel.... the one that seperates the cassette from the hub.

    Any advice would be much appreciated

    Cheers

    Dear Disgreece,

    Hi. The plastic disc serves no purpose that we can see. It falls into teh same category as "bells, reflectors (wheel and front and rear type) stabilisers, spokey dokes and the other useless paraphinalia that comes with a new bike.
    Our advice, and this will revoke your warranty as you are effectively changing the style of bike, is to snap the bugger off and put it in the "May be useful one day" pile in your shed.

    Regards

    Addendum:
    However, removal of the plastic disc "may" result in your chain jumping the cassette and chewing your spokes to oblivion and causing an almighty crash where you may end up coming back tot he shop to buy new shorts, top/jacket, knee and elbow pads and of course a new wheel and chain

    It's along similar lines to...

    Dear Dell,

    I have just bought a new laptop from you and found on booting up that it's hard drive is already full with an array of useless programs and utilities. Can I remove them all.

    One from today.... apparently you can't use an SRAM link in a Shimano chain!

    How many of you guys are guilty of doing this?
