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)

my initial response to the saddle:
not my cup of tea, but who cares as I drink coffee. good, creative use of a laser. maybe your next design could be Glenn Danzig washing his car. Or the Dalai Lama buying a bag of cheetos and Mickey's bomber.

just like the first jersey you made a few years ago, keep up with the creativity.

This one? Oh man, I hope we don't have to repeat the whole ________________ debate that started up over the jersey........

I'm interested to see whether they last with use or if it's a display only type of thing? I'd also be interested in whether you could etch anything on a Brooks? Obviously the design would have to remain on the flat parts..... But yeah, I'd be interested.

Put me down as another "don't like the image, but I love the concept and appreciate the artwork". Keep it up VD, I think what you did is neat-o mosquito.

perhaps you could do one with the ****** hands, but without the wrecked rectum? That way, when I sit on the saddle, the image becomes complete?

Sublime? I think so!

If I'm riding my bike, nobody can see the image. I suppose it works if you want to park it somewhere prominent and display it while you sip coffee, but my bike's either in the garage, under my butt or parked for maybe 10min. while I refuel.

That said, it's good to see someone try something new, even if the image may not be to everyone's liking.

haha, oh boy.

I like that it makes people feel uncomfortable, that in itself has made it a success.

I'd love to see a seat with a penis and testicles etched on a seat, though.

Uhhhh........ how do you get over the Misfits enough to avatar them?

I've got something to say
I killed your baby today and it
Doesn't matter much to me
As long as it's dead

I've got something to say
I raped your mother today and it
Doesn't matter much to me
As long as she spread



Gotta admit, it's catchy......



EDIT----and I just made it to the end of the last page and your um, sort of contrition. That wasn't enough for me to want to take it back, but hey.
