    As an avid watcher of Yianni the super car wrapper (https://yiannimize.com/) I was wondering if bike wrapping was a thing, and if so who does it professionally and who might do it themselves.

    I imagine there is no cost benefit in wrapping a Alu, Steel or Carbon road bike but creatively the possibilities are endless.

    I would also think that wrapping a carbon bike might not be such a good idea as it would never show up any frame issues and it could be used to cover up frame issues.

    I wonder if you can buy the wrap product in small quantities ?

    Any wrap experts out there??

    I have my new Trek frame booked in to be wrapped in a matt finish clear vinyl, does that count?

    I know plenty of guys i ride MTB with, who have their bikes wrapped prior to their first ride out. me personally i haven't but it seems a good way to hold value for resale.

    I sprayed alloy wheels with a matt black peelable paint.

    Very good result. Maybe temporary but only cost &10.

    I love looking at proper TT helmets and that has to be the best I have ever seen @Cuchilo!

    I wanted to get an Aliens decal, but could only find rubbish ones so it’s plain black

  14. When spring finally arrives, we'll see about vinyl wrapping my work bike, an old department store model I use for carrying fluids about to busses when they are inspected on Saturdays.
