With Bikeskinz wraps you have two options. You may have them professionally installed or decide to perform the install yourself. When you wrap the bike yourself you take two risks. You can end up with a less than perfect job and you can also void your warranty on the wrap. But if you think you can do it or have some experience with vinyl then we say give it a try. The worst that could happen is you might have to reorder one piece and reapply it, which BikeSkinZ will discount for you. Remember we want your bike to look good and tell people about us!
You may view the installation videos with tips for someone who wishes to apply the wrap themselves rather than having a professional sign or graphics shop perform the install. It is hard to wrap the bike perfect, but by no means is it impossible.
This set of installation videos will show you how to wrap your bike like a pro. You may stream clips below if you have broadband or order the full set of videos on DVD for $29.95. Simply email us a request for to purchase.
