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)

What to get embroidered on my bag?



Think I'm going to take off work early tonight and get something sewn on there.

Probably around 7" tall?

hmmm, well I can't tell how serious you are about your selections - whether you chose them because you liked them or because of their complete absurdity... but if it were me I would chose the golf ball saying "FORE". However, not because I play golf - but because it is completely silly and unexplainable.

Not very serious at all

I like the FORE ball too... I think I'm leaning towards that or the eagle with something completely nonsensical underneath it.

I had a couple of custom ideas (including my dog **** avatar) but the $90 setup fee put the kibosh on that...

Can you get more than 1?
Cause I'd get the Eagle with either the fish or golf ball in its talons.

You had provided some bar recommendations which I ignored and promptly regretted ignoring.

I dropped it off at the embroidery place earlier. Having the eagle/golf ball thing. Only the eagle is going to be red to match the bag... and instead of saying "FORE" it is going to say "MARKLE" in bright green.

I'm psyched about it but have to wait a week! WTF?

****ty picture but here's the end result:


I love the picture but they:
A) Put it too high up on the flap (potentially jeopardizing the water-resistant nature of my bag and harming the inherent viewability of the embroidered scene)
B) Made it a bit smaller than I wanted.

Nevertheless, I am happy and wildly appreciate hyperRevue's genius.
