You got a fancy custom bike made out of _stainless steel_ , and you let some nincompoop put DECALS
and CLEARCOAT on it?!?
Look upon these photos and repent: http://bohemianbicycles.com/images%202/stain5.jpg
That, my friend, is the only kind of decal a stainless steel bike should ever have. David Bohm is a
man who understands why you would make a bike out of stainless steel.
It's true that it doesn't rust, but to say that that is its "only real advantage" is selling it a
bit short, don't you think? You could say the same about gold, too.
(If I got a gold bike frame I'd have David Bohm build it!)
