The last of the bike's forward momentum is spent on lifting my body weight, so it comes to a stop just as I'm ready to land on my right foot.

Y'know, I haven't thought of how I get off the Denny...

I must do it OK 'cause no one :razor

Track stands are your friend. :nod Seated track stands are even better. :thumb Takes a little doing, but once you get the hang of it :rayof

So how many pairs of shorts, etc do y'all have? :ear

Right now, I've got 4 pairs of shorts and prolly double that in jerseys. 6-ish base layers of varying thicknesses and etc.

Don't ask me about the arm and knee warmers. :bluduh

I had to stop and think things through for a few minutes to write my description. I'm still not sure I got it quite right. Of course, now that I've written it down, I'll probably overthink what I'm doing next time I go to dismount and end up falling over.

I still haven't gotten around to learning trackstands, or skip stops, or most other fixie-specific maneuvers. Trackstands would be particularly useful for all the traffic signals I deal with. I probably need to lower my gearing to facilitate quicker learning. Right now I do pseudo-trackstands, creeping foward really slowly to try to stay on the pedals until the light changes. Used to do the same thing on the moto.

Trackstands can be skeery to learn if yer clipped in, in traffic, on a fixie. Try it with yer feet just on the pedals for a bit. Its actually easier on a fixie once you get the feel for it.

Jerseys

We need advrider jerseys. :nod

There was talk of making Dead Kitten Tour jerseys. :augie
(and stickers and a bunch of other stuff that I probably flaked on)

I can see them now...
Dead Kittens
Spastic Ostriches
Classic Skull & Bones with a dorky twist
A big Hammer
Flying Babies


Team Apathy
Team Bastard
Meatspace
Team Troll
Dead Kitten Cyclist
Ride The World
whatever

Simple retro color scheme - if I have anything to do with it. I friggin' hate the ricky racer stuff.


:ear

They won't be the cheapest jerseys, but we should be able to get something in the $50 to $75 range.

Screen printing on jerseys sucks misery goats! :nod

I agree on the retro colors, think old Italian or Eastern bloc national colors, like the old wool jerseys, only modern materials.

No skull and bones, that means "other" things in some circles....:deal

No babies, that's just weird for us DINKS.

I like the idea of the ADV white oval on the left breast, and maybe on the rear pocket.

I like the hammer idea, may I suggest some type of ancient crank type tool, or an image of an old water/well pump. Maybe a sillouhette of a string of high voltage power lines (think wattage), or even Joe Momma's Riders....(?)

I'm in with anything I can do to get it started.

We're thinking the same thing. :nod
Right now I"m trying to think of iconic images that would work in a silhouette or near silhouette. The image should, of course, be somehow attached to this crazy place either as an image we've used or as a representation of who we are.

Standard 3-pocket, 3/4 zip jersey?

How about the PUI bird sticking his head up just above the rear center pocket?

And a tiny stickfigure Mulie in cuffs on each sleeve.

:D

Full zip please.....:deal

volbeat22 08-07-2007 04:23 PM

+2 Full Zip.

What is the PUI Bird and what does the Mulie Stick figure look like?

I'd vote for a ADVRider theme. That's how and why we are all here...maybe "pedal the world" with a mix of moto and bike sponsors.
