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.
Nicely made, good looking and hardy name decals for that pro look
