I have stickers and plan on getting a lot more, if they are good, just for some fun.
My fav is an official looking one that says "Protected by security system"

I had a "Password Protected" one on my Nishiki MTB. Also have a "Beware of Rollers" one on my chopper, with a picture of a hand between two circles... need to photo them.

in some spanish speaking countries we use

en bici al trabajo
y el coche al carajo

It's a rhyme and means something like bike to work
and car to hell

Does that qualify for "Baby on Board"?

I'm not suffering from insanity...

...I'm enjoying every minute of it!


This is an actual bumper sticker I've seen, so I get no points for originality.

Well, the bumper sticker on my car says "Watch for bicycles", but that would be kind of redundant on a bike. "Watch for cars" would contrast nicely, and it's damn good advice.

A collection of "bumper stickers"....





Trinity Bicycles- my LBS. They helped me build my flip-flop wheel. These pics are from my first fixie ride.


acme bike co. is a defunct LBS. It was actually a branch of Trinity Bicycles.


Locally Roasted... that's the guy I get coffee from (pallen here on the forums)


HANG UP AND DRIVE and TALK TEXT CRASH were actually cut from a single bumper sticker


Don't Mess with Texas!


NIGHT RIDERS is a local riding group


The whole bike... and me. I guess even my shirt is a "bumper sticker."
