I do the same if I want to be sure (and can't be arsed changing it myself) felt pen on the disc  :028:. I always wipe the discs down when refitting anyway and if that doesn't clean it, first time you apply the brakes it's gone  :152:

Top tip and I'll be doing this from now on. I'm new to taking loose wheels in but if it saves £80 at the tyre shop then it's a no brainer.. Good opportunity to have a mooch round the bike too and a bit of spannering is good for the soul  :017:

They were very apologetic, to be fair to them...

One final thing - the owner did say that all front tyres now have the tread pattern "reversed" i.e. appearing to move water in to the middle of the tyre. I have no idea why that is, it seems counter intuitive but it was news to me.

That's not the case with my Avon Storm 3D-XM's.

If you mean the difference between front and rear, the Avon website suggests it is?

After a closer look, maybe so.  Seems counter intuitive to a non engineer! :008:
