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)

well, i read through the "is shants pistaboy" thread, and it seems like a lot of you are interested in pistaboy spokecards. therefore, since we now have a picture to work with, i think everyone should come up with their own versions and submit them. pistaboy could even vote for the "official" winner. what does everyone else think?

if any of you scumbags want the hi-res version so you can print it out, PM me and i'll email it to you.

Jesse, you nailed it, man. B/W rules. It even 'feels' indy, too much crap and the idea loses it's flavor.

Jesse M. + 1.

If I were to enter a submission, it would look just like post #5. Awesome.

thanks serendipper. i still want to see your photoshopped version with the "cast" and the tweaked out 80s colors, though!

henry_lee, i really like your version as well. very clean look.

+1 except i occasionally make money from making stupid stuff in photoshop, so i guess being creative is a little more than just a hobby for me.

I'll need some help with mine.

Shants, could you do a trackstand and have a friend take a photo of you from behind and to the right?

henry_lee, i really like your version as well. very clean look.

thanks... I thought i was kinda funny last night. I should know better
than to post something I'd never _actually_ put on my wheel.

I like your b&w one a lot. definitely the winner thus far.

so where's some more submissions? considering all of the brilliant xmas
spoke cards, where are the rest of you?

ha. actually, i'm not really a fan of spokecards. i don't have any on my ride, but i guess making them is a decent creative outlet.

This one is still my faveorit so far. Jesse M take it out of your avatar so I can it in mine! J/k its all cool if you want me in the avatar. I really like this one. How did you do the Pistaboy in chin writing? Freehand or Photoshop?
