Donít take this the wrong way, but I am curious: youíve got your name next to the US flag on a couple of your bikes. The only other place Iíve seen that is on the bikes that belong to a friend of mine who is actually on Team USA. Are you a current or former member of Team USA? Not that thereís any law against using that sticker either way.

A few of my riding friends have those - and they're definitely not on Team USA!

No stickers on my nice bikes. I did, however, put a sticker on my removable fender as a theft deterrent after someone stole my first one on a rainy day. Said sticker contains an incredibly obscure reference to someone that most people have never heard of.

not unless you consider wearing the Stars and Stripes at Masters track worlds on a couple of occasions (not the same as being on the actual National Team )

To tell you the truth, I just love this country and represent it in a positive way every chance I get !

I have a custom bike that is unique but I added a word not a name "Monozygote" on the left chain stay. Sorry I don't have a close-up.

Had an eggplant logo on the headtube. The adhesive wasn't all that great & it blew off during a ride. When it was noticed, it got attention. Otherwise, nada.

Wife's name and my name were hand painted in script on our *Anything You Want* "Elite" Paramounts

https://waterfordbikes.com/w/culture...ord-1980-1994/

" ... Marc was put in charge of re-building Paramount – almost from scratch. He started out by retooling the department including a new brazing fixture and alignment table. In June of ’80, the company decided it needed the Paramount back but that they would have to move out of the Chicago factory. Marc’s first bikes were built for Eric Heiden and the 7/11 team in 1980.

That year, Schwinn brought back the Paramount as a super-custom bike – “anything you want” for the then outrageous sum of $3,000. These became known as the “Elite” Paramounts... "

How can I do that?

I don't have my name on my bike frames, because I have a tendancey to remember who I am and what my bikes look like...

For the purposes of identification, incase they are stolen, I've a shed load of photos of them and a spread sheet listing all the components and frame numbers.

I had Co-Motion paint my name on my Wagon Queen Family Truckster (Cascadia) other than that I haven't done any bike labels or sticker or anything. I did put a Donald Duck sticker I found on a piece of fruit on my parts hybrid and I guess my Phil Wood Apple VeloXS bike was at one point a fellow named Mike Thompson's race bike but beyond that I am not really a sticker type anymore. I had an old trek that I covered in stickers but once I got nice bikes I just didn't want to do it anymore.

Every Scott bike has my last name on the frame.

My custom bike has the name and signature of the guy who made it.

Both my road bikes have some Italian guys signature on it. Ernesto something. I'm thinking another Italian name or signature on it would be overkill and confusing.

Signature

When I had my stainless steel Columbus XCr custom bike made by Cicli Barco, one option was a name plate. I took them up on it. It is in stainless steel, but you can get whatever you want.

The previous owner of my frame painted "La TortugaĒ on the seat stays. I race on this bike so I kept the name, of course!

The lettering has been wearing away, so one of these days I might redo it in some sort of retro turbo/macho heavy typeface.
