Why Mountain bike stickers
With mountain bike stickers you can personalize your mountain bike. However, that’s not all: stickers can also protect your frame or make you stand out more. I list all the reasons to choose mountain bike stickers:
Personalize your mountain bike
Protection of your frame and rims
Making you stand out better
Sponsors or advertisements
In addition, I have also heard the tip to remove damage to a mountain bike with a nice sticker.
Types of MTB stickers
There are different types of MTB stickers. For example, I just mentioned that you can protect your frame with it – you can see this as an MTB wrap – or that you can make your rims more striking. Let’s briefly discuss the different types of mountain bike stickers.
Frame stickers MTB
To dress up your frame, there are special MTB frame stickers. These stickers are made to adhere well to the frame, without damaging the paintwork of your mountain bike frame. In many cases new mountain bikes are already stickered with the names of mountain bike brands on the frame.
Rim stickers MTB
There are also rim stickers for your mountain bike. These are meant to stick on the MTB rims, so that they stand out more. Applying rim stickers can be a difficult job, since you have to stick them exactly in the curve of the MTB wheels.
Brand stickers: Trek, Specialized and Cube
And, as I mentioned, there are also brand stickers. These mountain bike stickers are often offered in a complete set, so that you can sticker your entire mountain bike. This can be very useful if you want to repair a damaged sticker after a fall. Some examples of brand stickers:
- Cube stickers MTB
- Specialized stickers MTB
- Trek sticker sets
Often branded stickers are available exclusively from mountain bike manufacturers.
Frequently asked questions about MTB decals
If you stick normal stickers on your mountain bike, there is a good chance that these will affect the paintwork of your frame. This is due to the glue of normal stickers. This is often not the case with special mountain bike stickers.
They do not affect the paintwork of your frame, they adhere very well and they do not discolour. Mountain bike stickers can often be purchased at bicycle shops.
There are sticker sets from brands such as Cube, Trek and Specialized. If you want to purchase a new sticker set, it is best to take a look at the webshop of the brand itself.
