    frame stickers...............

    so I just ordered a set of these for my bike. depending on size they will go either at the top of the seatstay on both sides or at the back of the toptube, also on both sides. based on his description of the decal do you think I need to treat or clearcoat it after installation?? thanks.

    They will be too thick to clearcoat for a seamless transition.

    Feel free to mount them on both sides, but know that if you want your bike to truly look "pro", you'll only mount one! Save the rest for when you need to replace a worn decal.

    Your name goes on the right side of the top tube, back by the seat clamp.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    I followed your link but I wouldn't want to buy those since my name isn't Fowler, Hudson, Johnson or Griffin.

    yeah. I figured it would just be easier if I changed my name to one of those so I did just that.

    I use these guys

    I don't clear coat them in any way. In fact I want to be able to remove and replace them periodically. They stick well, but come off when I want to clean up and re-apply. I just order a few extras.

    I don't race for the USA, and wanted something a little more subdued, so instead of a flag, I chose a solid red band on a black background with white lettering. Very understated look to it. I get lots of compliments.
