    Bored today...decide to bling the bike

    I decided the new Trek 3.1 needed some red. I'm in America, so RED/WHITE/BLUE! (It helps to have your own Vinyl Cutter)

    I might do a little more...but I like what I have so far. Now I'm going to do my helmet.

    Here's all the photos:

    You know, I don't usually go in for that kind of graphics job, but yours looks very nice.

    I like it. Good job.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    Very pro looking...........
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    I saw one like it somewhere and did it myself. I have a new design now with more supports under the upright. Made a few of those for friends and doing myself a new one in the near future. Very handy stands for sure!

    I'll do a complete parts list and instructions when I do it.

    I hope you didn't strip them off yet. Take it for a ride at least like that. I think it looks very tastefully subtle and factory like. You didn't pimp it. You held back which is nice.

    I was kidding. I like it. It will stay that way until I think of another scheme

    Cool! I've been thinking of using my vinyl cutter for the same... I pimped out my car with vinyl, and it has lasted through three Wisconsin winters without peeling at all!
    Nice work...

    Very tastefully done. But that brings up this question: Does that mean it's NOT Bling?

    You might want to think of making up packages like that for sale.
