|Here is a closeup of the transfers I had made at FastSigns. Total cost for 2 was $14.00. They have a variety of fonts and colors. The transfers apply just like a window sign. You remove the backing and rub the transfers on the frame. They seem very durable so I haven't clearcoated them.|

|I am considering "Your Mammie" for the tt on my blank/stealth kg286 when it's built, so J2 will always know where he stands. This looks like a good, inexpensive solution.

|This also shows my red crankset. I had an old Dura Ace 7410 crankset that had the anodizing rubbing off. I was going to have them powdercoated but I decided to paint them first to see if I like the color. I primed and sprayed them with automotive touch up paint. So far the paint is holding up. I still might have them powdercoated for a more durable finish.|

|To borrow a phrase from some other generation, Is how your bike looks with red cranks. Alot of people don't like excessive color matching...I am not one of those people. I have a beautiful NOS emerald green and yellow marinoni frame which will become a colour coded fixie show piece. I'm in the process of hunting down every single bit of yellow or green componentry available. Already speced out some green anodized spoke nipples :) |
I think your bike would look better with a black stem in which case I'll be glad to take that old silver one off your hands ;)
To borrow a phrase from some other generation, Your bike looks absolutely t!ts.
