I wanted to order a 'Birdy R u. M head badge' from them, but although the site accepts new registrations, the ordering sequence doesn't progress to the shipping page. The site's contact button also leads to a '404 unknown page error'.
Interesting, it is a little bit tricky to order birdy on line, that is because the agreement between German inventors and Taiwan Pacific cycles manufacturer. Where are you located? Why don't you order from local distributor?

Thanks, BUT, you may not have read my post. I already have a Birdy Rohloff and therefore don't have the money to buy another ;-). What I'm looking for is the metallic bronze R u. M badge to replace the stick on vinyl transfer that is on the front of the stem. It's the badge (I believe) similar to those on the original models. That web-site supposedly has them for USD12.

I already swapped the grips and plan to swap the pedals, but will wait for a shakedown ride to decide if the saddle has to go. I thought it would be interesting to compare the sizes of bikes.

That green color is dope.....nice folder collection
