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)

did you do the cut and sew on the shirt too, or just the printing?

The campagnolo is silkscreened on the shirt and the stripes on the sleeves are sewed. I'm workin on a red/white long sleeve right now but I just don't know what to print on it...

I didn't put the shirt together, I wish I had the skills to do so. I bought it as a regular baseball shirt.

Thats a good looking shirt. Does it violate trademarks or anything? You could probably sell a bunch of them if it doesn't.

Did you just slap a Campagnolo "iron-on" over a vintage Los Angeles Rams logo?

Did anyone else check this out and then flip out over the extraordinary De Rosa that it links to?

If not, check it.

That's seriously fresh. If you made a bunch I'd buy one if it was reasonably priced, and I probably wouldn't be the only one.

It would be a clear trademark violation to make more than one of these. "One offs" can be made under artistic license.

Mount Washington Bike Shop (AKA: Joe's Bike Shop) in Baltimore makes parody TShirts. Like:
(picture official logos/crests/fonts etc...)
- Bianchi spelled as Biatch
- BMW spelled as MWB (Mt. Washington Bike Shop)

If you do that, you can sell.

How much are tshirt screeners? I see many people on here "making" their own shirts via printing and I was just curious i guess. I went to look up the stuff but its all like... "call for pricing" type ish, which leads me to believe that they're all cash money.
