Flandria custom decal name set
8 10

Want a customised name decal on your top tube, like what the pros have? Now you can, thanks to Flandria. Their decals are customisable and good looking, and stay put too. They won't break the bank either.

There's a bunch of options on the Flandria website but ours are the Classic decals. You get whatever name you want - it'll appear exactly as you type it into the form on the website - careful with your spelling now - and there's a wide choice of flags, including the road.cc 'r' right at the bottom of the list. Text can be black or white depending on your frame colour, and you can have it outlined too if you like.

Each decal comes on an application strip, and they're very simple to adhere. Clean the frame surface well, peel off the backing, apply the decal on its strip, smooth down and remove the strip. the transparent background of the decal barely shows and it looks very nice indeed. They'll fit on the shell of your helmet too, and they look great there as well.

The decals have proved pretty hardy. You can get them off with a bit of heat from the hairdryer but they're not going to end up in the gutter once it starts raining. At £13 for 10 they'll do five bikes, or three bikes and a couple of helmets. Or you could stick them on something else if you want; they stick to most surfaces. I did my computer, so now we'll never get mixed up again in the office.

I used to be called Paul Cook, but not being able to afford a personalised registration for my car made me change my name.

Kind regards,

Quite possibly, although with your name you might want to avoid club runs unless you fancy shoving a dozen water bottle up your jersey for your fellow riders  3

I'm not sure how 10 stickers equates to five bikes? You're not sticking them on both sides are you?

Flandria is just round the corner from me, I got some of these stickers. Some very nice bikes they make too.

 21 True enough although I was thinking more of Jens sitting on the front of a climb and dishing out a whole host of pain - shame I can't live up to the image! Oh well, water carrier it is then  20

This is so last year.

Now it's all the rage to have your name tattood on your arse and ride in a pair of hooger-shorts.

Just a thought, but they'd work just as well on a drum kit as a bike. Still lives in Shepherd's Bush, says Wiki  3

Cool, I'll give him a shout. If he's not too busy selling butter, like the other one.

Do you get a flag option? Club badges are a popular choice here in SG.

I've got __
