Well done Christopher. Of the two, I think the vertical is the more effective but both are great. A vertical for me thanks though I'd be happy and could use either.

Only one observation - there is another forum which is actually called Cycling Forums (cyclingforums.com) so there is some chance of confusion here.

You don't really want to advertise the opposition, do you?

I agree that the vertical format is the one that best suit my prefered sticker locations. And I also agree with matgi that there may be confusion with the alternate forum.

The word 'Australian' gets around that one, well it does for me, maybe because I'm so sick of American forums that the Aussie tag jumps out at me more than 'cycling forums' does.

I agree. Something like "Aussie Forum" along with the logo would speak for itself. URL is all that's required to complete the message.

I think the vertical one is better. It gives more places on the bike frame to put them.

I wouldn't worry about the cycling forums as the american one is unreachable from here.

If I had a car, I could go out and wash and polish it whilst waiting for those forums to load. Even when they do, they usually barf up a database error message.

The internet pipe out of WA appears to be saturated to the point of not functioning.

Hi all

Thanks for your opinions and comments. Vertical it is!
Good comments regarding the competitior, so I have updated the text.. which I think is an improvement.

So here it is... once last look, spelling ok? Any major problems? FYI, the "a" for Australia is small on purpose.

Cheers

I think that it looks great Christopher - it will look good with Tojo's blue paint and the girlie bike can please herself!
Thanks for organising it!

Great... will send it off to the printer...

December they will be ready, will post details in in the forum in a few weeks so I can start collecting addresses for Hard Core members... and for soft core members will do the stamped self-addresses envelope thing.

Thanks all.

G'Day all, sorry I've missed all this :oops:

The vertical is the go, It should fit nicely on the seatstays and rear quarter windows of the smokebox :)

Who do I send the envelope to?

Personally would like the chain stay option - nice discrete and functional.

Stocks are almost out.. I have to double check however I think there should be enough for the next few requests. Details here >.

There are currently no plans to get in more stock - the current stickers are ok however not all weather, all weather stickers however would break the bank and I am reluctant to charge for stickers. However, should anyone know of a good sticker printer in Australia I would be happy to know. The stickers would be small and min. 2 colour.

Cheers
Christopher
