trek replacement decals...rarer than diamondsbicycle268

does anyone know where I could get some simple Trek logo decals for an oclv repaint? Tried the LBS route and the local trek rep didn't have any....

Thanks in advance
Try, try again . . .ms

My LBS was able to get me a set of 5200 decals for my repaint this fall without any problems. I do not know if the LBS got them from the local rep or someone in Waterloo (the owner of my LBS was out there for the annual dealers' meeting around the time that the LBS got the decals for me). I would try the LBS route again -- you can use my email as proof that they can be obtained.

but your "buy it now" should be changed to "buy it WOW-that's expensive!" ;-)

Why would set your buy now price so high for a used bike when you can get a brand new one (2003) for $2500 or less at LBS? I hope your reserve is less than $2000.

If I saw that BIN price on a bike with a reserve I wouldn't even bother bidding. I'd figure the reserve is just as high or close to it. It's ok to hope for the best but you shouldn't be scaring people away, you should be drawing them in with a realistic BIN that is just tempting enough to make them look and watch and maybe if reserve hasn't been met the BIN is still there to get the bike anyway before the auction ends.

i know i know, i totally knew the reserve was way over when i set the auction, for .25 i always set my BINs high, though the reserve is pretty low, nowhere close to 3300. Just drop me an email via ebay if you really want to know what the reserve is.
