Need bike / fanny sign ideas

OK people, I'd like to mount a flexible sign on my bike or fanny to put inspiration signs on my butt for the cagers out there. I'm thinking of flexible whiteboard material with a buckle waist-strap, and trim it with reflective tape. Any other ideas?

BURN FAT NOT OIL

GASOLINE PRICES?

MY BIKE GETS 60 MPG OF WATER

OBESITY IS NOT AN OPTION

BIKING BETTER THAN MEDS, SURGERY

ASK ME HOW TO RIDE TO WORK

purchase one of those clear plastic map holders sold for motorcycles. they usually have velcro on the back for adherance to the tankbag. you could probably sew (or get mom/wife/gf to do it if you don't sew) a belt loop of two onto it and use a race belt to keep it on.

Then you can change signs as your mood dictates...

Be part of the SOLUTION...NOT the POLLUTION!

Driving got you down? Try a bike!

Bike Rage? Never heard of it.

I'd rather fix a flat than be FAT!

The tires on your vehicle are equal or greater to the ones behind your belt!

Trim yourself and your budget... Ride a Bike!

Trust me...MY driving isn't hurting the roads!

More bikes = less construction! Think about it!

Think Different... Ride a Bike!

Is your car your second home? Break free ride a bike!

Some say cars = freedom... reality says cars = slavary

Free more than just your mind.... ride a bike.

Bikes don't kill animals....CARS do!

I may post some more...but those are the ones I came up with.

Peace,

If you are geek-inclined, this LED scrolling display might be a possible solution for a rolling message board. Of course you need a 12-volt power source like a SLA battery.

Burn bagels, not petroleum.

Lose weight! Ask me how.

High carb diet.

Caution! High pressure tires shoot rocks into cars.

I'm lowering the demand for gasoline, so show a little gratitude,

You know, where I ride that's far more appropriate than that other thing which comes to mind.

Try this from Interbike:

http://velonews.com/tech/report/articles/7070.0.html


Tell the world what you think


John Bell of Nyx Illuminated Clothing simply needed to walk down the aisles of the trade show to catch attention. It wasn't really Bell that drew stares, but his jacket. The darn thing features a programmable display on the back upon which one can flash messages, images or even a sound-responsive light show.

Still in the prototype stage, the jacket's display can be programmed via a handheld computer. Currently, the system requires a user to connect via a USB port, but production models will feature Bluetooth wireless. Unfortunately, the display is hard to photograph, so you will have to take our word for how cool it is.

Once beyond the prototype stage, the jacket will probably retail in the $200 to $300 range. Bell says that messages of infinite complexity can be loaded into the jacket, meaning that we will have little or no trouble typing in our favorite message to motorists: "Put down the coffee, hang up the phone and DRIVE!"

The technology can be used in all sorts of clothing and Bell is already manufacturing items with small displays like armbands. Some have already suggested using the display in the back windows of their cars... mmmm. It does send the imagination reeling, eh?
