Hey...does anyone have a SPOT Brand Headtube sticker? My Longboard didn't come with one and I would like one. Thanks!

I emailed Spot but have not heard back (a couple weeks) LBS said they have a difficult time getting the stickers.

Also...does Spot make 1 1/8 Top Caps? The longboard came with a NVO adjustment stem that had a SPOT cap...but that cap needs to stay with the stem (which I took off)

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I did run across that sticker today that I almost bought. I was hoping to find different color ones (white with clear back) or something for my Longboard. I bought my frame assembled so I didn't have a chance to check the box. Dang!

If anyone can hook me up please let me know!

That NVO setup is pretty slick...just didn't work out for me.

I don't have a photo of mine, but I'll take one later today

I guess "slick" is one way to look at that NVO setup :D

Try calling the Golden Bike shop 303-278-6545
I bet they could mail you both items

I've been trying to get them to sell me one of these:thumbsup: They said they were going to start making them for sale to the general public, but nothing yet.

Unfortunately, Spot has been a bit shoddy on the follow-up in terms of decals. They promised me a complete set after they put on new ones that were not the color I wanted. I've asked twice, but still get no replies (Gavin, you listening???)

That headtube badge is pretty sweet. I just called Golden Bike Shop (for the record those guys are great. Everytime I deal with them they are super knowledgable and responsive) and they said:
1) Spot doesn't make a top cap for 1 1/8 steer tubes (only that NVO top cap that is specific to that stem set-up)
2) They don't have any head tube stickers.

Man 0 for 2! I also asked Gavin a couple of times but assume he is pretty busy. He was extremely responsive when the Spot Crank arm on my Longboard SS started to fall apart after 2 rides (Bad press fitting) He had another shipped pretty much the next day and called me on my cell to let me know. Very impressed with Spot overall.

Custom headtube sticker

Well I was lucky enough to get a black sticker from GATES when I ordered the belt Tension tool. The black didn't seem to mesh well on my Spot so I decided to carefully cut out the black (obviously the sticker was not on the frame) Overall I am pretty happy. Check out the pics. (the sticker was all black with white lettering)

Also just a heads up that the sticker I bought on Ebay was way too big to be used for a headtube.

Looks like it will be going on the Jeep unless anyone wants it for $5.

OH well.
Found this site for possible future custom frame decals.

Friend of mine has been requesting a top cap for his longboard. Thought is to make it look like a vintage surf board using some lighter wood tones as the base and two red stripes down the center.

Attached are a few other top caps I've made recently.

Do you have those for sale to the general public somewhere? It could go with the scheme I'm putting together in my head for the Fisticuff.

I have a few at a local shop up for sale in Albuquerque (http://www.highdesertbicycles.com/) Otherwise people just shoot me a PM or email with what they are looking for. If you see one you like let me know and I can set it aside for you.
