I forgot to say that in looking at Sean Flores' method of using double-sided tape, the way he does it undoubtedly can work because it doesn't rely exclusively on tape but also uses spoke heads as "rivets" to further anchor the badge into the head tube.

In recounting my experience with double-sided tape, I didn't mean to discount his approach, but only to say you can't really rely on the tape alone for a bike you're actually going to ride and transport (as opposed to show).
