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)

Need help from the graphic designers

I am ordering a reload bag soon, and I want to put an outline of a buffalo on the main flap. I cant really find any good images that look ok at a decent size. can anyone help me out? I found this so far: Linketty BUT it is the mascot/logo of West texas A&M, and I dont really want a mascot on my bag, just an silhouette of a buffalo.

Vintage Buffalo Bills logo would be hot, if you didn't not want mascots.

If you like any of these, let me know (PM) which one you want and the size (height x width) in inches. I can also change the color if needed.

I love questions poised in negative logic, don't you?

Did you know that in French there's a way around that?

I know you said you didn't want mascots, but I can't resist the urge to plug the home state...

i don't know if i would worry about people recognizing that west texas a&m logo... i live in lubbock and go to texas tech about an hour and a half south and would have had no idea that was their mascot... i doubt others will either

i'm now plagued by the echoing of the phrase, "the thundering turd."

which, although not in that graphic, quickly came to mind.

Also, just to be pedantic, the animal you are looking at (at least according to everyone's pictures) is called a bison, not a buffalo.

Actually... these are ALL buffalos. to be more specific, a bison is a TYPE of buffalo. A bison is a buffalo, but a buffalo is not necessarily a bison. Additionally, 9 out of 10 times, when someone says buffalo, they mean the nearly extinct American Bison.
