    Replacements for the manufacturer's logo, on your fixie

    Have you painted over or removed the original writing from the manufacture, on your bike, and replaced it with messages or designs of your own? If so, what does your tubular shingle say? If you fantasize about doing this, but could never mar the paint on your bike, what would you put on it?

    I'm not sure what I'm going to put on the new bike that I'm getting later this week, but I was thinking about "my other car is a bike", or "I eat hummers for breakfast"

    Decals that are cleared over pretty much drive me up the wall.

    I've seriously been thinking about spraying over all the Specialized logos on my Langster.

    But if I am going to do that, I might as well just take it apart and spray the whole frame. And well, most of my painting projects end up being pretty brutal due to my impatience.

    i removed most of the decals on my new frame recently (i left the continental sponsership ones on the seat tube and the ambrosia puddings one on the top tube cos i like the way they look). i then tried to get my own stickers made up, however trying some of the local print shops in soho i found the prices way too high. what i would like to know is if there is a place to get your own decals (you supply the design) made up for cheap. someone posted an internet site a few months ago but they only did runs of 100 or more.
    well here's the blog

    When I repainted the Basso, I just gave it a general sanding before putting on the primer. All the writing on the frame was painted on, so there weren't any decals to remove. Since then I have put a Basso chainstay guard on for no good reason other than I like how it's designed, and have added text of my own in two places. On the top of the stem I have でんかつ and on the left fork blade "がんばります."

    I was thinking that I wanted mine to look really nice, so I was thinking inquiring at sign shops, to see if they could paint something on. Many signs are hand lettered, I believe, and this might be done quickly, and cheeply. Once I have the bike, and shop around, I'll let you know what I find out.

    there's a place called "correct impression" who make A4 size rub ons for like 15, they also make mock-ups for various packaging etc. used be in holborn near British Museum, but they've moved somewhere. try searching on the web.

    Just cover the "i" and the "z" in specialized and it'll read " Special ed" .

    I ordered a few sheets of "Mr. Yuk" stickers from the local poison control center. I put one on my IRO ss mtb.

    The IRO decals are pretty wack anyway.
