Wheel Decals, need ideas and a place to buy

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Wheel Decals, need ideas and a place to buy

Does anyone know where I can buy or have any ideas of what type of decals would go with a Planet X neon green Frame

They would be to fit 31m road rims

disc or rim brakes? 20mm will work with disc brakes.

If you have rim brakes, measure the braking surface.

Wheels decals weigh grams. Why would you want to add more grams to your bike?

29 and 700c are the same, but Id contact them about decals designed for use with rim brakes, for reasons that you are aware of.
