- Own name on top tube, how/where
I was going to do that but instead I just changed my name by deed poll to 'Shimano XT powered by Sram Rockshox Fox'Posted 7 years ago
Bit of a mouthful and a complete bugger when writing a cheque but boy does it feel good when everyone at the local trail centre has your name on their bike 😉epicycloSubscriber

"Own name on top tube, how/where"
If you stick your forum name on, the scrote who steals your bike won't twig it's not part of the bike's name.
Then when he advertises it on eBay, you/we will recognise it 🙂
Now I've thought of that, I'm going to do it too.Posted 7 years agoPierreMember
A long time ago, I simply printed out a name on A4 then carefully copied in enamel paint before doing the laquer job on an ex-girlfriend's bike (while she was still my girlfriend).
…so if anyone comes across a Saracen steel frame carefully sprayed in a blue-purple fade with "project one" on the downtube, it's nicked, Leicester circa 1998. Good luck with it. I was careful with the lettering, I have a pretty steady brush hand!

Local sign writers should be able to help
LOL at that comment.. My stepfather kind of nudged me in the direction of signwriting when I was a lad… He had a bit of a talent for it and did it as a sideline..
he was trying to channel my enthusiasm for painting on walls and trains in a more positive direction..
Imagine both our joys when the advent of the vinyl transfer virtually destroyed the signwriting industry overnight..
