Especially 5. - because I'm a singlespeed guy, and there are no double chainrings on any of my bikes. If I wore skuch a T-shirt, that would be as if I spat in the face of all that's good about cycling.
SS tandems?

I don't own the tandem, but yes, that's going to be converted to singlespeed, on request of the owner. She likes singlespeed tandeming.

You'll want to bring a chain tool, and a spare chain.

Can we vote on the actual tshirt itself?

I vote for NO COTTON.

Something like the alert shirts would be great. High vis color, and moisture wicking

I suppose it's too late to enter? I had real design work all week and I just now got some breathing room. Here's what I had in mind (but it's not camera -ready yet):

Oh, I figured we all yanked each others' chains on the MTB forum so much it was appropriate

EDIT - - BTW, B&W photos are OK to screen print if they are posterized or done in a coarse line-screen Some screen printers can do up to 65-line; but most can at least do 45. And some fun gradients can be done in one pass if the screen is loaded just right.

We discussed this on the tandem forum - there is no reason why a singlespeed tandem would be any less reliable than a geared one. On the countrary, it should be more reliable. Especially since I could use a 1/8" chain and stronger chainring+cog.

Anyway, it's gonna happen.

There should be some A&S or commuter specific options like:

*Bike lanes are for candyasses
*Yes, I *do* need the entire lane
*I run red lights. Don't like it? F. U.!
*Critical Mass: Fear the ruffians in spandex!
*Safety Nanny on Board
*EPA rated 6 miles/beer
*Your vehicle needs a motor? Wuss.
*This isn't a helmet, it's a bad hair day
*Don't draft me or I'll fart!

When is a t-shirt not a t-shirt?

When it's designed by committee.

Not for nothing, but I would never wear a shirt that said ".net" or ".com" anything.

If it's fixed, you'll need a spare chain. We broke a timing chain on ours once. Have you voted?

Now don't get mad, but I said from the get got that I have all singlespeeds. And I repeated the word "singlespeed" one or two times more. Singlespeed is not fixed gear. I know you have powers over us common mortals, but your attention seems slightly .. umm... "not there" today?

Yes, I did vote! #2

Funny, I was connected into the DB of one of the largest medical schools in the US, and I wasn't giving the forums 100% of my attention. You are correct. A single speed (not fixed) tandem would be pretty sweet, now that I think about it.


Can anyone see the images right now?

I could see them, too. They're more than visible, they're big and loud, on the limit of being obtrusive

Maybe the're just messing with your head.
