    I know you can still get "guaranteed not built with Reynolds 531" stickers, but I don't have the source handy. I had one on my Teledyne, but that frame broke long ago. Some of the modern Columbus stickers are too gaudy for me. I like the SL reissue stickers though. 531 stickers lost a lot when TI decided they had to put their name at the bottom.

    I'm here for ya, pal... (We had a match-built Paramount in the shop last week, cracked in three places. He got his money's worth out of it.)

    Grand Tour winners get a style pass, as everyone knows - thus my brother's questionable sartorial tastes.

    I like a tasteful Columbus decal on the lower seat tube or down tube but it really only works on frames that benefit from a little additional clutter and not all do. But good question...

    On real out-there adventure bikes, a tasteful frame bag is allowed. No bentos. Especially on tri bikes. They can't even keep from peeing on them.

    Preferably on bare ti frames. Ever had the paint chip off with those things?

    Here is another case study. The bike in question a Gios Compact Pro...one of a small batch built with Vitus tubing. IMHO, the verdict is that the tubing sticker is necessary just on the kink factor alone....P.S. Roche rode a similar bike in 1991...

    I have ridden a few rattle-cans in my day that weighed less than the sweat they were bathed in, and were an absolute blast to ride, particularly if you enjoy pissing blood at the end of the day. We of course will cease to exist at some point, but we cannot say we truly lived until we have enjoyed the ethereal experience of levitating over a bed of stones, or across New England tarmac on a lithe, sprightly steel frame that is fitted with a pair of fat tubs.

    Only if they carry bento kine stuff in them including a fair amount to sticky rice. Can't tell you the number of times a Spam Musubi from 7-11 saved my ride when I lived in Hawaii. A Full Bento box meal would be a delight on a 5 hour ride. Carbs, pork fat and a little protein thrown in for good measure. MMMMMMM good.

    Here is another kind of kinky one-and therefore necessary...A Columbus sticker en Francais (so the tubing is of metric diameter)

    Completely random, coincidence.

    I came across this in a box I had not seen or opened in 10+ years (that's another story):


    No clue what it was, I opened it carefully.



    OK. I have no clue when or where I received this, or who gave it to me.

    But, I do have a Rhygin Metax frame...

    So I'm keeping it.

    Top of the seat tube on road bikes, bottom on track bikes :)
