Hey, now here’s a rather simple, discreet cutting design — the sort of thing that’s probably likely to heal lightly and serve, more than anything, as a mostly private source of joy for the wearer. But oh ho ho, what’s this?
Ha ha, hey, it’s like an old school cycling jersey! But, um, with less blood, actually.

I would wear a shirt with that print on it. Ink or blood.
i second that.
Is that a fixed gear cutting I spy?
This made me ultra happy.
I love the elegance of fixies but I don’t think I could bring myself to ride one…
Really simple cuttings are endearing. I like.
Why is there a recent popularity surge with fixies…… Its turned into a fade
Good to see you on here again! Not to speak of that I like the bike cutting – simple and yet well-crafted…
The fixie is never dead !!!!! I use every day my bianchi pista 73! and also I do a lot of free ride with my giant…
Geo – I assume you mean ‘fad’…
Fashions come and go in everything…A few years ago everyone was riding flatlanders, now loads of people are into fixies.
A few years ago, everyone was getting snakebites, now loads of people are getting microdermals.
No point stressing about it, just go with the flow and do whatever you want. :p
he he….you’re right!!
What a badass.
i miss my tenspeed
Love the Mr. Show references.
Let whoever wants to ride a fixie have a go. If they weren’t meant to be on it they’ll find out rather quickly.
first thing i thought its an honour to albert hoffmann or acid
unfortunately i did mean fad……… and penski, you make a good argument…. I shouldn’t stress…..
i love bikes full stop. had my huge wheeled monster for ages used to be uncool but now everyone asks me where i got it. 😛
its red and fast.
That’s an incredibly steep headtube angle, and the seat tube to head tube ratio makes it look like it was built for a gorilla.
seat tube to top tube ratio*
I think it’s just that the surface of the guy’s arm is curved; geometry looks more reasonable in the blood print on the piece of tape.
this made me happy. i love my fixie. speaking of. why isnt my fixed gear bike tattoo up here?!
Because you use the word fixie, Mark.
uhm. i don’t really see how this could be a fixed gear…since it’s got no gears. or chainring. or chain. it’s more of a “choose your own adventure” bike. imagine it with ten speeds and a derailleur! imagine it with a freewheel! imagine it with a flipflop! the possibilities are endless. you could even add imagi-tri bars…
Fixed Gear. there you go. i wrote it out. happy you bike nazi? yea i say fixie. whats the problem
simple designs work best.
let’s print jerseys like this.
Bike nazi? haha.
In order to be a bike nazi she would have to suggest only thinking one style of bike was the correct one. If your tattoo isn’t up here it obviously isn’t all that great. Also, if you’re going to comment on the design of the bike how about this…where the fuck are the spokes or even the chainring or pedals/cranks or chain lol.
what i really meant to say is that i can call it whatever i want. i was completely kidding about my tattoo being up here *although it would be cool if it was). its just the drivetrain to a single speed on my bicep. look it up, i think its under sports tattoos. and although i really like this cutting, i would have added a few more things. or at least a crank with pedals. anyway. still awesome!
AHHH A child of the wheel
more like a Bianchi Pista-shit.
am I the only person who thought of freddy mercury?
the solid black omn this guy looks really badly faded
