Street Wrapz

Street WrapzHere’s one that might generate some boos and hisses from the haters, but if you really think about it, it’s a great product idea. Street Wrapz is a frame decal set that allows you to get the look of a custom paint job without the price or wait. You don’t even need to disassemble your bike. Street Wrapz wood grainIt’s also removable, so in case you change your mind later, you’re not stuck sandblasting your frame. Custom designs are an option, which could be very cool for small teams and organizations, or useful for promotions. MSRP is $75, but they’re on sale for $50 direct.

    Cool! I think something like this would be good for a bike that’s in serious need of a new paint job. I bet my kid would like this on his bike!

    I’ll say the same thing here that I said over on bikecommuters.com when they had this six days ago -

    “I just can’t get behind something like this. It’s a disposable plastic wrap aimed at hipster dorks. I highly doubt it’s recyclable and they expect people to treat it like some sort of “graphic of the month” thing? PHOOEY!

    For the record, I hate it when they wrap cars too.”

    And I’ll say what I said on Bikecommuters.com six days ago: I’m diggin’ on that harlequin/argyle wrap job.

    Raiyn’s got good points…but perhaps it is the latent hipster in me that still thinks it is a fun, colorful idea.

    I’m thinking checkers would look really smart

    Let’s see
    Argyle for the wife, Lava Lamp for the kid, and Carbon Fiber for me! I’m a clyde, so that would REALLY mess with people!

    Actually I think it’s kind of neat, except that it’s priced for Apple-loving hipster dorks (I can get a powdercoat for not much more), and argyle is SO Q3 2009. I’ll stick with contact paper and colored duct tape.

    Gotta show some love for the powdercoat. :beer:

    I can vouch for these – had my Masi decked out in Leopard print for nearly a year now and still going strong. Actually hard to remove and the paint job still in check!

    Thought about getting powder coat but too expensive if u want to change etc.
