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)

Nope. My real last name isn't Scrod. That's a nickname I've had since I was a little kid that has pretty much become my official surname over the past 30 years. It's an old New England fisherman's term meaning "catch of the day".

Unfortunately, everyone outside of New England assumes it has something to do with balls.

No, I know. Your last name starts with a G. ;]

Edit: I get it now, like this..

"scrod" means "catch of the day"? I always thought it was just whitefish (cod, haddock, sole, etc.) fillets

Pretty much the same thing. It was a general name for whatever whitefish the fishermen happened to haul in the most of that day. Local restaurants began advertising Scrod (or 'Schrod' in some parts) on their menus because they never really knew what they'd get.

I once had a shirt from some seafood place in Gloucester that said I HAD SCROD LAST NIGHT in big yellow letters on the front. I wish I still had that damn shirt!

Back in '98 (when you were 6 years old).

antilogy - all shirts run true to size except for the one organic cotton one which runs a little smaller (which we also happen to be out of at the moment ).

any photos of the yellow one? I'm considering it, but some yellow shirts are a gross yellow, and some are a better one.

Sorry for the crappy pic...I only have my phone right now. It shows the color pretty well though.



I know what your saying about yellow shirts. This one's a good yellow (not too "lemon", not too gold). It's pretty much spot on with what the mock up looks like on the site.

Riot - you asked in the other thread but I figured I'd repost my response here in case anyone else was wondering:

Most likely, yes. I'm expecting the 'Massive' shirts any day now and hopefully the hats will be in my hands soon as well because my e-mail has been blowing up over them. I think I may have gotten anxious and put that one up a little too soon!

Don't you make t-shirts? Remake it!. Hell, I'd probably buy one.
