Swobo's site offers up a shirt for single speeders:

It say's "Ever since you started riding single speeds, you're life has been on a path of self destruction."


Am I missing something here? I don't get it. Does it reference something else? I don't know.

Not something I would choose to wear but the Merino jersey looks killer.

...............

Come on man , I laughed my ass off when I saw that shirt.

Thats exactly what my girl says when I am limping around the house on Sunday, after a Hardcore XC SS ride on Saturday.

Great shirt.

Later..............

It's a reproduction of a shirt they had back in 1998 or so...

This statement was uttered to the guy in the orange jumpsuit (none other than Robert Ives, one of the Amigos, former welder at Ventana and head cheese at Blue Collar Bikes (r.i.p.)) after a race somewhere in the Bay area where he'd had one too many beers. I believe he's still around Sacto welding race car frames.

the statement is practically gospel. but then again all things are relative, or some kind of family.

maybe if i wore that shirt daily i wouldn't have to hear that said so often...

What am i missing. I can't even get the image to be big enough to read the print!

and by the way, what the heck does swobo mean anyway?

That's bad ass, typical of what the wife probably thinks. some folks just dont get it though, the whole ss thing. masochist? self destructive? maybe, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, if your led to hammer down on one gear that's just how it's gotta be

Well... ever since I went back to riding SS, my life has simplified and grown.

My body is certainly on the path to destruction, but my mind is free ......... of gears. :)

another option

if you don't get it, maybe you'll like this one better:

"Singlespeed. The wonderful more you can believe it."

a t-shirt coming soon from my design studio in Taiwan. Copywrite 2005 HW

Ahh.... engrish. Very good. Will it keep me warm when it is 30 degrees and snowing like it is today?

Ok. Just think about this sentence: "Ever since you started using speed, your life has been on a path of self destruction." ;)

That makes sense, doesn't it? :rolleyes:

Aahhhh - timeless classic, however, it should read

"Singlespeed. The more wonderful than you can believe it."

I'm pretty sure, at least :)
