    We should get some text on the back that says "TAXI BAIT"

    that's a good point. what about "single speed and fixed gear" on the back? and some sort of slogan on the front (come on "in velo veritas"!)

    So we've gone away from a logo in preference to text?
    I like the latin.... on the back sounds kinda nice.

    he, he nipple leak! (where that school-girlish picture of somnambulat now?)

    never used the norco patches. usually keep the Park tool patches handy for emergencies but for permament fix you have to use the proper glue+sandpaper+patch kits...or replace the tube.

    Okay then you constructive critics, I'll just suggest my original and true feeling (f*ck SS anyways):
    TORONTO
    Fixed Gear


    EDIT: I've never used any of the glueless patches I just assumed they would be crap. I usually carry 1 spare tube with me in case I get a flat (I usually get one at a time) and a patch/glue/sandpaper kit in case I get two. I generally just slip on the new tube and wait until the evening to patch the old tube, as it can be tough when you're out in the elements.

    a simple logo would be alright. i like option 2 there, although in addition to the boat reference, "SS" has some third reich connotations....

    perhaps just writing it out in full "Toronto Single Speed & Fixed Gear [Riders]"?

    Like Shiznaz leads up to.... is there a single speed rider on there or on the list? You guys are all fixed no?
    Spelling out all out on a single line makes for small illegible jersey type.

    just a thought - if the jersey read just fixed gear i could probably get some of the guys from the toronto fixed group on board for a jersey, could bring the costs down...

    Yeah I was facetiously mocking the notion. Apart from being used by the nazis to abbreviate "Schutzstaffeln" SS regularly stands for Stainless Steel, Social Services, Steam Ship (S.S. Enterprise etc), Surround Sound, Single Speed, Screen Shot and god knows how many others. Lets not let the nazis win this one people.

    hahaha.. I always said that nobody would ever be able to wear one of those again but I actually saw a guy with a total hitler moustache a few weeks ago. Although in his case I think it was more of a mario/luigi moustache.
