    I have my name on my bike.. I like it. If you or someone else doesn't good for you/them..
    I think it's cool.. plus it's one more identifier. Sure it's just a sticker that will come off quickly but it's nice having it there.

    I find the name decal helps me remember my name after I crash.

    Customization and personalization are what make a bike yours....if it is an "off the rack" bike, it helps identify it in a crowd.

    One of my bikes was a study in blue....I liked the colour and how I could work colours into the parts I upgraded....no one ever mistook my bike for someone else's because it was quite distinctive.

    My current make and model of mtb is a lot more rare here, but I have still done some minor customizing. I am contamplating putting a few decals on it that would be identifying marks that wouldn't be as obvious to a bike thief...I'm looking at ringing the rear part of the top tube to reflect the decorations I've been granted. Not something I'd do to my Cx bike or future road bike and not something as racer-esque as my name and flag...but to each his or her own
    So 9 times wasn't enough and I'm going back again:my participant page for the 2018 Alberta Ride to Conquer Cancer.

    Change your name to match the bike. That's cool.

    Solutions...that's why they pay me the big bucks around here.

    So I'm just off to the town registry to get my name changed to Jamis Colnago. Kinda catchy ring to it, actually.

    I use the same VCG stickers on my frame and on my helmet (double pace line reminder).
    The one on the frame is on the top inside of the left chainstay. It looks best on a pure Celeste background, you see, and it would make the top tube too busy too methinks on my 2010 Bianchi Infinito.

    I like frame stickers.
    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    personally, I wouldn't waste the money on decals.

    just use a Dremel tool...

    I don't see why anyone would care if you put your name on YOUR bike, however if you put your name on my bike, Mr. Beat and Mr. Down might have something to say about that.

    Do it if you fancy it. If people are going to ridicule you it says more about them than it does you.

    From where does one order such decals?
