Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Show us your bike stickers...

It's Friday. How about a feel good thread?

I, like many of us, always seem to customize my bikes with stickers. I'm a big fan of Sean Cliver and the stuff he does with Hookups






What do you guys have?

Great thread idea. With the BFSSFG group buy build up on the way I was looking to throw a few stickers on. Are people making these themselves? Any online stores that sell them and/or kits? Do yall apply a layer of clear coat over them?

I got these stickers from a skate shop.

Skate shops are the Mother Load of high quality, laminated, weather-proof stickers.

I didn't know Hook-ups was still around. They used to make skate shoes back in the 90's.

i never make a conscious decision to put anything specific on my bike, but somehow the left side of my iro is covered in 'em. they overlap, arent' on straight, they're torn up and creased and aren't really for anything specific. lotsa bike shop stickers and stuff given out at alleycats. there's a couple of achewood stickers and maybe a converge one. ..i'm not really sure.

it looks awful and i really like it that way.

Ed was my favorite. I had all his shirts (still have some of them) and lots of his decks. I still have one of his decks in my room, with a monster throwing up into another's mouth.

sean rules.

have you ever dealt with him on a personal level? awesome guy, and he usually has originals of his art for sale.

i've been a fan of his since the early 90's when he took over the art duties at powell peralta.
