Here's a great article written by Paul Hinton and published in the September 1993 edition of MBUK.
It covers all sorts of warranty voiding modifications you might like to make to your bike, kit and components.
Includes stripping your forks, slicing your shoes and the ever popular drilling your cranks, rims and chainrings.
Lots of nice pictures of how to terrorise your bike with powertools.

PDF is here

Enjoy it...

Remember that article well. Think it inspired me to drill holes in my seatpost, stem quill and other parts. Made sweet FA of a difference but the article is an interesting read.

Remind me never to buy Paul Hintons' Dyna Tech!
