    Peel clear stickers off new XX1 eagle cranks?
    Are those really for scratch protection, or for packing?

    Can I take them off the way I have my cleats I've never touched my shoes to the crankarms.

    Just wondering if they are supposed to stay on or not.

    I keep them on for abrasion protection from my shoes. I've gone trough the tape after one season. If you don't move around on your bike then maybe it's not needed but why take it off?

    I dunno. They are kind of ugly. Looks like a goof in the finish or something. I guess I'll just leave them on.

    I'd leave them on. I've got a couple pairs of SRAM carbon cranks and both have rub marks on the clear film. I could swear that my shoes never rub the cranks.
