    I've used the 3M spray adhesive. I usually use too much and there is residue on my skinsuit, but not enough to bother me.

    3M Super 77 i think is what I use. 77 or 90.

    they did not ban glue. they simply made it necessary to use pins.

    whether you choose to infer that requiring pins means it is impossible to use two methods of fastening is entirely up to you.

    does USAC specify how many pins or where they must be placed?

    I know people who use Super 77...I use 3M Photomount myself...both seem to work well.

    Just make sure you peel the number off soon after the event...if you wait too long they can get stuck on there REAL good.

    1N7. Racing numbers.
    (a) Racing number are provided by the organizer, who may
    require a deposit that shall be refunded on return of the
    numbers in good order. The figures shall not be hand written,
    but printed in block letters using black waterproof ink.
    Numbers shall be constructed from materials sufficiently
    durable to last the race without tearing or disintegrating,
    even in adverse weather. The name of the race or race
    sponsor may appear on a competitor's number. Promoters
    who fail to provide numbers meeting the above requirements
    to all riders shall be fined as specified in the Schedule of Fees.
    (b) Riders shall place their numbers as prescribed by the
    officials and in such a way that they are visible when the rider
    is in a racing position. When shoulder numbers are provided
    for cyclocross, they are worn on the upper arm to be visible
    from the front. Hip numbers shall be attached securely at
    least at the four corners with pins and no accessory or hair
    may obstruct a clear view of the number (riders with
    misplaced, obscured or unreadable numbers will not be
    placed). If shoulder or frame numbers are provided, they too
    shall be placed as prescribed. Numbers may not be folded,
    trimmed, crumpled, or otherwise defaced. [Replacement of
    the numbers at riders' expense if noted before the start,
    otherwise warning or relegation.]
    (c) An administrator may impose additional number
    requirements.

    Mike Olsen who is the promoter for the Callville Classic, Tour De Sol and others started a company called Number Huger. It utilizes some sort of really strong thin double sided tape that can be used over and over. It works pretty well. Lots of guys were using them at the Callville race. Keeps the numbers nice and flat.

    It's a similar product to the thing I linked too.

    It does.

    It can also make it hard for low-quality cameras to see what the number is.

    WSBA numbers are cloth and I've seen some folks stitch them on. The cloth the numbers are printed on is stretchy to a certain extent. The frame numbers, on the other hand, are really bad. Better this year than last year, but not so great as a whole.
