Haha this is a stupid question but I'm just curious what people think about stickers and if they like them on their bike or like their bike with no stickers.

I'm pretty sure a solid 90% of all BMX bikes in existence have stickers on them, at least just one. Whether on the frame, forks, bars, wheels, wherever.

If you want to remove them, try getting the majority off if it's a crusty sticker, then spray in WD40 and rub the remaining sticker with a cloth. If you're lucky, the whole sticker will slide off in one piece.

Depends on the stickers. Usually I run em for a while, then take em off. Sometimes I put more on.

I actually have a bunch of random ones floating around at home I have yet to stick to something.

for me, it is only the factory logo stickers, or anything else that was put on at the factory...

I put any other stickers on the back of my car, my drum practice pad, or my instrument and amp cases

My old van...this thing toured all over the country with my band

The amount of punk rock band stickers on that van is fucking sweet , stickers on vehicles to attract un needed attention from cops to though

I don't like stickers anywhere on my bike. But if I had an anthem sticker that would change.

well, I never really do anything to break the law so I never worry about that. I have nothing to hide. Was never stopped for the stickers, though it did come up the 2 times I got stopped for speeding. The cop just asked if they impeded my rear view mirror. I let him sit in the driver seat to see, and it was no problem.

Had the same situation happen and the cop was pretty cool about it, I posted my car in another thread but im too lazy to look it up right now haha

I run very few stickers on my bike since its a raw frame and I feel stickers would look tacky.
Pretty much running simple white ones on my top and down top and a small collage of sticker on the headtube

As for removal of stickers usually goo off/ goo gone works, its oily so make sure to clean the area after use. WD40 works but it requires alot of scrubbing. Gasoline works best if there's nothing else.

I don't mind them on other peoples bikes unless they're placed horribly... like a random sticker dead center of the top tube looks fucking ugly in my opinion. I like mine clean with minimal stickers, used to be a lot of random stickers though or a sticker collage on my top tube/seat tube junction.


Right now I only have 5.

1 Little Devil Brand sticker across my handlebars
1 Lotek sticker on the right leg of my fork
1 RidePAbmx sticker on the left leg of my fork
1 !GB! sticker on the left side of my downtube right next to the BB shell
1 Little Devil Brand sticker on the right side of my downtube, again right next to the BB shell
