    Perhaps a little too benign.

    My all-time favorite bike shirt has a picture of a depressed looking cartoon man with a gas pump nozzle to his forehead, as if it were a *** and he wanted to commit suicide.

    On the back, it says "Friends don't let friends drive."

    I still have it, but it is so ratty by this point that I can't really wear it. Maybe you could make some more of these shirts? And send one to me?

    I like it. People always think I'm poor because I ride my bike, but, I have money because I ride my bike. Oh well, first round is on me! How about one that says "Because I'm a patriot"?
    I gotta Mike my bike.

    Maybe Cabana is thinking the shirt could offend people who ride out of necessity, instead of choice. It might sound a little uppity to someone who does have to, as in "I'm not like one of these poor bums who ride bikes because they have to, I'm doing it because I want to." Maybe a better idea would be the bike image with the words "My Choice."

    I love it! But, you know what? I think it's even stronger without the words. I think the image works pretty well without on its own.

    Bingo.

    The gas pump suicide image (or something similar) with a short & sweet caption underneath is perfect, and loses that unintended elitist feel.

    Props for actually going forth w/ a T-shirt design -- I've had thoughts about stuff like this in the past, but could never get my lazy behind in gear to make it happen.

    I just scored some of Giant's "It's My Duty To Ride" stickers, very cool! Has a kid with his hand over his heart, with an outline of the US behind him.

    I second that. I saw that shirt on your site (Cabana) and dug it. If you make a male version put one aside for me.

    Delusion: A false belief strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence.

    Just nod and smile, and look the other way. It seems to work 90% of the time.

    Cabana, how about " Burn calories, not gasoline" If you do decide to make t-shirts with a cycling theme let me know, I would like to get one.

    Thanks. I'll take a look. I'm just not a pink sort of girl.

    Didn't mean to get you in trouble, just wanted to know where to find the shirt.
