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)

alright...yet ANOTHER lame idea

to those of you who know about paint/printmaking help it out with this one.

i had another lame idea that probably wont happen but im still thinking about the possibility.
so i want to make a burberry inspired deep v wheel set. how hard would it be? can i screenprint the pattern on it? how gaudy would it look? um....photoshop anyone?

yer taking this in far left field. the idea is super customization(sp). why have every color everyone else has ("oh snap! mine are eggplant....err purple colored!") when you could make it your own? ah, ill go floppin around like a fish instead.

not redundant, reaffirming

my horse isnt that high.. but if youre rolling around with homemade burberry deep v's.. then yes, its a lot higher then that

ive figured out how you can be gaudy and you ignored me.. leave the bikes to bike riders and get a scooter, a long green coat, a skinny tie, lots of mirrors.. and burberry the **** out of the side panels

screenprinting wouldn't work, but they could be painted, or possibly wrapped in vinyl?

Seems like vinyl would prob. be your best option. Either that or eight bazillion hours with a 00 paintbrush & magnifying glass. Check & see if you can find someplace that does the vinyl for those ads they cover cars/buses with.

do you want the plaid print or the stitched effect? i would say simplify it down to black, white and red bands of vinyl sticker paper (either find the right color or spraypaint/paint/screen them - but now the wheels are getting heavy...) and then cut and place by hand on a painted tan rim. it would be a ***** but with enough effort you could make it happen.

to clarify, it aint about the burberry pattern but more of the concept of altering a cult item to ultimately make it unique. damn....making a mf. explain his self.
