name decal placement?!(8 posts)

name decal placement?!Scottland
Oct 27, 2002 5:16 PM
I am the proud owner of a brand new mylar name decal for my bicycle, yet I completely ignorant of on which side of my bicycle to properly place the decal. Is there a standard for this? Where do most people place their name-decals? Please help me--I want to apply the decal immediately so that I can begin to impress other cyclists early tomorrow morning and have them think I am a cool person and like me and be envious and have them think I am like really professional and neato and stuff.

Most all I've seen have been on the right side of the top tube..gogene

I noticed in a recent photograph that Saeco-Cannondale places the rider's name on the on the drive side downtube about an inch or two from the head tube. Approximately where downtube shifters would be used. However, the more popular location by far is the drive side top tube near the seat tube.

Be subtle and put it on the nondrive chainstay right at the BB joint. "I'm so cool, I don't even have to try"

on Radisa Cubric's custom Merckx Team SC. It said, "Specifically designed and handbuilt for Radisa Cubric"!!!!!! Well excuse me!!! I think having a custom Merckx with your name painted on at the factory, certifies you as a bad-ass!

You've gotten four mutually exclusive answers. Now what are you going to do? Not to put any additional pressure on you, but when I worked in a shop, there were certain parts that we weren't allowed to sell to people who had put their name sticker in the wrong place.
