The Bicycle Sticker Thread

As we all know, stickers add power, agility, and style to any bicycle. What stickers do you currently have on your bike? What stickers are you about to add? If you had a lot of money, what would be your dream sticker setup? There's no wrong answer here because SSFG is a place of love and acceptance.

Prepare to be Lambasted by Carleton.

And I have one RG sticker on here, and The next time I'm home, I'll be getting/putting a few 'Tattoo GR' stickers from a shop where a friend of mine works.

I have not put a sticker on a bike since 1996 or so. That one was an Independent sticker on my Mongoose, since been removed.

My favorite bike sticker ever was a Phoenix Suns sticker I had on my other Mongoose (Alta), that I'd gotten signed by Danny Ainge and Charles Barkley.

Pake has a Dirty Dawgs pawprint sticker on the seat tube because i used their skull cable guides.

722ts has a SSFG Army sticker, because it tweaked my retro-bone, being a big KISS fan in my youth.

not a big sticker user.

I just ordered some of these, they're rad. And it's for a good cause.

If you're paying for stickers, you need to get out more. Go to demo days at your LBS, crash an alleykat, join the local cycling club... There are a gazillion free stickers out there, go find them.

I don't put stickers on bikes, but I'll sure put them on toolboxes.

This is not related to SSFG.

Moving to FOO.

Stop naming threads "thread".

Apparently, SSFG isn't all that accepting.

I have an SS bike and I keep it as far from SSFG as I possibly can.

My bike is all custom painted with greens, blue sky and wild roses. At a rest stop someone asked me if I had a "Hello Kitty" bike. So I found this teeny tiny little Hello Kitty sticker and put it on the bike... it's sortof like a "where's Waldo" you have to find it...
