    What do you put your stickers on?

    Do you guys use your stickers from bike-related companies (Spy, Chrome, Skratch, etc.)? If you do, where do you put them?

    I have a pile of stickers waiting to be put to use, but the only decent surface I can think of is my campus bike.

    I have a fully stickered bicycle tool box but I've pretty much run out of room on it.
    My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.

    I put them on my bear box, to be able to differentiate it from everyone else's bear box on a hike.

    My sentiments exactly. Unless a company wants to pay me to advertise their product, they don't get used. The few times I bought a new car, I told the dealer not to put their stickers on my car, and used cars I bought had them removed.

    I have them all over the inside of the door to my workshop. There are car, bike, motorcycle and others in the mix.

    I just picked up a Raleigh Carton International with the 531 decal on the right of your lid plus the triangular decals for the fork. And the frame has Heuret dropouts. Fun to see your toolbox.

    I basically follow the posters above. I don't, for the most part, display advertising unless that company is actually sponsoring me. I make exceptions. I've worn Campy, Park and Bike Gallery caps. I have a Felt jersey I bought at shop at a ride when I arrived and realized I forgot my jersey. It's a great jersey. But for the most part, I run decal/sticker free. I did race many years ago and wore my Fuji and Motobecane jerseys with pride.

    Toolbox and/or garage cabinet doors (inside surface of the doors if you want to be more discreet) . Kinda fun to look at and reminiscent of past times and events. I'm not uptight about the advertising aspect.
    Ride more. Fret less.

    I have an ABR sticker and a RUSA sticker on the back of my truck. I don't put company stickers anywhere.

    I put stickers on magnetic sheets then cut them out so they can be stuck on metal surfaces. that way I can remove them without old stickers stuck on everything.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes
