  • Clear nail varnish? I've never tried it myself as I only wear pink nail varnish ordinarily....

    Put some on mine... All the inner yellow parts on the frame and forks,the SRAM on the top tube and the Ritchey on the seat post are all decals,

    The one on the seat post (Ritchey) is the only one that I put a top coat of clear coat lacquer on and to tell you the truth it made the decal look faded and the edges started to lift so I left all the others and they are stuck solid don't think they will ever lift,plus the SRAM decals on the top tube have taken a few knocks with no problems...
  • Never mind protecting the decals, I'd be looking for something to protect my ars* - maybe a saddle peut être.

    The decals on the saddle are of leaves,it just blends into the bush...

    You probably wish you could tune your exhaust too? Don't forget to order your downtube neon kit http://tinyurl.com/5upc8k6

    If self adhesive vinyl then you won't need to protect it.
