Anyone want a Beyoncé decal? Spent a while matching the font and colors to 'Bianchi'

I get compliments on this all the time, but at the same time few people notice unless you really look, because Beyoncé looks so much like Bianchi. Usually only cyclists think to look at the bike brand, and then only the extroverted ones will say something about it. It's pretty fun to ride in the city with this.

I'd be happy to post the decal on the forums (Adobe Illustrator file) so anyone can order their own from StickerMule and spread the love!

Have you seen any other fun stickers that encourage double takes or are just silly? It's easily worth more than a couple bucks of fun and conversation starting for years.

For a while in New York City people would replace the CitiBike logo on the CitiBikes with one in the exact same font but that said 'Wu Tang' and I loved it.

Not a Beyoncé fan except; I watched the Movie "Cadillac Records" about Chess Records that recorded so many blues musicians in the 50s and 60s (and put Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters on the map. Movie was done on a budget, very fitting for the low budget Chess Records. The music was the songs of the great Chess artists but played by the current musicians playing the parts. The songs are good - but, those were some huge shoes to fill.

Etta James is late in the movie, played by Beyoncé. I had paid zero attention to Beyoncé so I watched with no expectations. The acting - good. Then came the song and OMG this woman can shout out the blues! And put her whole heart, soul and body into the song like it was hers. To this day, I have not looked at her work any further, but I had my eyes opened. I will always know she is the real deal, however she chooses to live out her life.

Post the decal! It sounds great. Did you design it?
I have a few stickers coming to me in the mail from a bookstore. I'll probably get other cute stickers too, I want some Sailor Moon ones.

Super cool! Would love to see those.

Here's the PDF: https://we.tl/t-gw2tqguwBl

I ordered 10 of them from StickerMule.com, the 12.5" x 3.5" size bumper stickers for $33.

Here's what it looks like! You can edit the PDF in illustrator to match the pantone frame color and font color of most frames.

lyf thanks for sharing your decal!

I'll share my stickered out cycle when all my stickers arrive - I have a folding one so its frame is pretty small.

I had one on my bike, but it used to shimmy so violently going down the road I had to take it off.
