hi
picked up some decals for my accu-trax fork.
now i'm undecided if i like the decal look.
before i bought them i checked out lots of pictures
on here of forks with decals. always been a fan of decals.
now i guess i have cold feet and can't decide.
almost looks to cluttered. could just be the papaer backing covers too much.
probably will look better with fork colour showing thru decals.
what does everyone else think? vote and/or opinions appreciated.
thanks roy

Decals. You can always remove them and get more if you keep changing your mind. A pita I know, but not the end of the world.

thanks for all the feedback. i'll go with decals. i only went with these because i
had read on here about gil_m's mishap. which explained why he wasn't returning my emails.
knew i wouldn't have the decals any time soon. wanted them for bike show
beginning of may. i got these from mkozaczek off ebay. they looked okay to me. :oops:
i am willing to learn. :lol:
i know very little about yeti's and accu-trax forks. is the font wrong because of vintage
of fork? or wrong all together? how about posting a good picture of what decals should look like.
gil i will resend my last email with order. hope you are back in business soon.

The font is wrong altogether I'm afraid, not the best example, but they should look like this:
