    Custom Decals for IRO Group buy?

    Since the IRO Frame is going to be pretty plain, it seems, is there any interest in getting some custom bikeforums decals? i'm willing to try to get a group discount. i was thinking it might also be cool to get member's names as decals as well. anyone?

    With all the trouble we go through (as a whole) to debadge our frames, this might not be the best-received idea, but I'd be interested in seeing the results. You should give Mr. Swantak a crack at it...he's a helluvaguy.

    yeah, i was figuring on some flames, but i think that it's kind of lame to have spent all this money as a group and then to not get any recognition for it. and i'm thinking something small and tasteful, not a big ugly logo. think of it as an aftermarket sticker, not a decal

    this woman local to me makes some DAMN NICE artistic headbadges...

    the headbadge might just end up costing more than the frame though...

    still BEAUTIFUL STUFF!

    My IRO is going to rock the Carbonello stickers Litespeed put in an issue of Velonews. Talk about a campaign backfiring. "Mediocrity in motion" perfectly describes my riding so their slogan is great for my bike.

    I have my stickers saved and had this planned for the IRO before I saw Bluechip's bike...but he did it first. I have visions of Carbonello being the hit bike in 2007. FWIW the CF weave isn't part of the bike it is part of the stickers...too damn funny.

    i'm totally getting this headbadge. It will go great with the Hello Kitty/Toxic Avenger look that i'm going for.

    alright, so here's what i've heard so far. matt at bikenames.com is offering 40% off, if we can get at least 10 people to order. i've also heard from some people on the forum who make stickers, but right now, it looks like the bikenames deal is the best. i guess post if you're interested?
