Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

constantly, daily.....but we try and use em all ourselves

here's the last one my wife made for tee shirts,


she freehands this sort of thing, then makes the screens herself (yes, I am a lucky fella)

but then she turns around and tells me it's easy so I'd bet if you just observe, think and sketch you'll get some real good stuff rolling too. You'll never need others for that once you're rolling. The thing with imagery and the like is it's way easy to come up with way more than you can possibly use if you find your muse. Show us all some when you do

Here's my website (although under construction).

I'll be adding "pin-up" style art soon.

Let me know what your looking for, if needed I'll donate my services.

i've been looking to do some stenciled images inside chainrings (and trying to get ideas based on what other people have done....'pentabike' is rad!).

i'm also trying to find a stencil of the world war 1 soldier on a bike....i've seen it once and i can't remember if it was on this forum or not? any ideas? or anybody even know what i'm talking about?

I like these as I mentioned in this thread:

Create Your Own Bike Lane

Not much to do with cycling but very cool ones. . .
