i've seen kids cut up straws and then make a vertical cut so you can slot it in the spokes. cheap and quick and easy to remove if you don't want to mess up your bike permanently (which is actually not that bad because nobody will want to steal a messy bike Wink )

My experience at my school is... if you have a unique bike, it's more likely to get stolen or damaged.
Also, will you be storing your bike outside? If so... you may want to re-consider the sweatering (though I love the idea), it could potentially get pretty mildewy sitting outside.
I hate to be a downer... but I would hate more to see you put all this effort into your nice, new bike, only to have it stolen or ruined!
I think the electrical tape is a neat idea though!

Yeah, right now my bike is kept inside the garage at night. I am so worried about it being stolen, however right now I live in a fairly conservative town with many cars. During school I leave it on campus of the community college where I attend high school.

A bike that has a little artsy touch may draw a wandering eye its way...

Do you think the nice hippies at Humboldt State would hurt it? I mean, over investing my trust is unusual... but I doubt anything will happen.
