    Bubbling stickers

    I've had my Mach 4C for about 4 months now, and yesterday I noticed the stickers on the seat stays are both bubbled up like they've been melted. The bike has been in my garage in TX, so it gets hot, but I would hope the stickers were designed to withstand those temps.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Are you referring to the chain stay and frame protection stickers? One of mine was peeling at the edge so I applied some liquid nails silicone and it seems to have worked ok so far.

    I'll take some pics when I get home, but below shows the stickers I'm referring to (and the spot where they are bubbling). It's doing it in the same area at the top where the tubes start to bend.

    I'm a big guy, 230 lbs, and took about a 3 foot drop the other day, so part of me is wondering if the rear triangle bowed in that area causing the stickers to stretch. Man I hope not.
