Check eBay for the seller "funreflectors". They offer many different styles of cute reflective decals for bicycles, etc. in a variety of colors. I have an old black gloss Schwinn mixte (original decals worn off) that needed some color so I got their bright orange flowers. Just right; looks great!

Dottie sounds lovely, and I like the idea of using dots to jazz her up a bit. I've used reflective dots like these (http://www.night-gear.com/reflective-1-inch-adhesive-vinyl-hot-dots-sheet-of-64/) on "Zippy", and I get the added benefit of more nighttime visibility. I've never thought about the effect on the paint - since these dots do sometimes peel/fall off and I don't notice for a while, they may not be causing damage. Or, I could be oblivious... ;)

We succeed when we create conditions for success - and when we can't do that, we create conditions for succeeding within constraints.

I didn't know that about Trek Headquarters in Whitewater, WI. I did know there is a factory in Waterloo, WI. They give tours on Wednesday mornings. I plan on taking my grandson to one of them.

I finally broke down and got a new bike! It is a Trek Verve 4. It rides really nice, has a lower step through than my old Trek Navigator 100 and much smoother click style shifters. I was able to increase my cruising speed from 8 mph to 10-11 mph even while pulling a tot trailer with my granddaughter in it. I hate the color (silver) but it only came in one color.

I want to put red polka dots on it. Does anyone know where I can get vinyl red dots that will stick to the bike without damaging the paint? I want to get a sliver helmet and put the polka dots on that too. Ok, get ready to groan. Once I have done this I am going to name my bike.......Dottie!
