BunnyHop Bike Wrap Installation Guide

Top Tube

1. Centre the Bike Wrap on the top of the Top-tube, (Apply lightly, so you can easily adjust the positioning. You’ll firmly apply only when you’re happy with the final positioning).  2. Smooth the wrap and double checking alignments.  3. Wrap the Top-tube, removing air bubbles as you, keep tension on the wrap without over stretching the material.  4. When you’re happy with the positioning, apply strong pressure all over the graphic wrap. 5. Post heat the material, if the material has been stretched this will reset the vinyls memory (use a hairdryer if you don’t have a heat gun).  6. Re-squeegee when cool to ensure maximum adhesion.



Cut off the ruler. Remember, measure twice and cut once.

Top tube example.  For the width, (as a general rule) I suggest adding 10mm to the to your measure. Using the example above (the seat post end of the tube) is 120mm measure, so we add 10mm, the cut width will be 130mm. I have 165mm (for the head tube end) so the cut size will be 175mm.

 

For the length, I have measured 485mm

Carefully cut  out the template

Forks

1. Centre the Bike Wrap on the outside of the fork, (Apply lightly, so you can easily adjust the positioning. You’ll firmly apply only when you’re happy with the final positioning, do this after applying the Back Edge).  2. Stick Back Edge to the inside of the fork first. (By doing this you’ll hide the edge of the wrap from the leading edge of the fork, keeps it aero :)  Smooth the wrap and double checking alignments.  3. Wrap the fork leg, removing air bubbles as you, keep tension on the wrap without over stretching the material.  4. When you’re happy with the positioning, apply strong pressure all over the graphic wrap.  5. Post heat the material, if the material has been stretched this will reset the vinyls memory (use a hairdryer if you don’t have a heat gun).  6. Re-squeegee when cool to ensure maximum adhesion.


Before removing the backing paper, check the fit

Centre the Wrap on the outside of the fork. Lightly apply (so you can easily adjust the positioning if required)

Wrap around the the back edge of the fork.  Start in the centre and then you’ll apply towards the bottom then then the top

The trickest part of the bike to install is the inside top of the fork (lots of curve shapes). Take your time, try not to stretch the material too much, work from the middle of the fork toward the top of the fork. Tension with one hand and apply with the other.

TIPS

Working around cables

The best results happen if you can remove cables and obstacles, but this is not always possible, so an easy way it to cut the Wrap, you’ll then be able to wrap in around the cable.

Centre the Wrap

Centring your print is important. Gently mark the centre on the template side.  This will show up as a bump on the print side. Uses the bumps to centre the Wrap onto the frame.
