Any You BIGBOYS Got Your Name onyer Bike?

I put 'Mr Beans' on my Cannondale about 5 years ago. One of thsoe sticker booths in the middle of the local mall. Paid about $5 for each sticker, one on each side of the toptube. Looks good. Lots of riders think it's painted on but nope, just stickers. Cheap!

FTR, I had to use a 'z' on the forums cause Beans was taken. Where is he now?

A little hidden by the hb's but you can see it.

Nope. My bike is awesome, but I figure the serial number and the fact that I have yet to be around anyone else with a Fuji Blue Absolute 4.0 in any race yet lets me know which one is mine.

I haven't yet. Beanz, where did you get your stickers? I'd like to put my name on my brevet bike in white vinyl lettering to match the stock font.
When I repaint my fixed gear, I'll be handlettering my name on it before the clear coat goes on.

My bike has a Denali sticker on the side. That's all the awesomeness it needs.

One of those booths in the center of the local mall!...They have all colors and styles. You can take in a drawing or sample and I believe they can copy it on the computer. Plus they have liots of samples and letter styles. They set it in the computer and produce it right there in a minute or two.

I thought about having my name put on my project one but went with Burning Addiction instead.

Sweet! I'll have to check out the mall sometime and see if they've got that. Our local mall (Bellevue Square) is pretty full of itself, and may not deign to have such frivolities.

My touring bike has the name of my street on it. I built it, and painted it, in my garage, and I had the stickers made at a sign shop. I got about two dozen of them for $20. They say "Cinderella Cycles," and they look like a factory job.

Hahaha!.........I can't put one on my Lemond cause the space is taken by the model name. Maybe from now on I'll tell other riders my name is "Chambery"!
