Quote of the day (riders)-promote the sport

Unicycling has come a long way in the last 30 years (see "Revolution One").
I love that John Foss started the original "quote of the day (non riders)" thread.
That seems very appropriate being one of the key players in the sport.

I am throwing out another thread of phrases that could show up on a T shirt at a unicycle festival. The little quips we use to stand apart from others.

This may also help those out there as we promote and grow the sport!!

Let me start with a few:

*Lose a wheel, up the challenge -Muni --From STOMP Munifest
*Muni-it's not for clowns
*Unicycle--all bikes 50% off
*No gears, no chain, no shocks, no brakes, no handle bars....NO PROBLEM! -Muni

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOURS??

Where There's a Wheel, There's a Way
Training Wheels are for Wimps
Lose the Training Wheel
(Those to be accompanied by an illustration of a unicycle, so people know what the shirt is talking about)

It's harder to do for Muni shirts, because first the non-unicyclists needs to know what Muni is. If you're trying to spread the word and educate the public, always spell it out (Mountain Unicylcing). That's why all of the shirts I've done for unicycle conventions spell out the whole thing. Examples:
  • California Mountain Unicycle Weekend
  • National Unicycle Meet
  • USA Unicycle Team

This is a great thread idea. It's like a subset (or side-set) of the Quote of the Day from Non-Riders thread, which is all over the place...

What if you're right, and they're left?












Okay, let's not make it political...

Everyone can do it. All you need is determination.

If you think you can't, you're right.
If you think you can, you're right, too.


With the right attitude you can do anything.

I keep thinking about a play off:

Maybe we aught to stay away from:

"One is the loneliest number" though .........hmmmmmm?

But, most of the time, that is how many of us end up riding.

I`m not sure, if this T-Shirt needs a subtitle or backprint.
Any suggestions welcome.

I have a t-shirt (which I am wearing today) that has an image of a unicyclist (on a giraffe) and says, “This is how I roll”

An image of a small milk carton with 'MISSING' printed over a picture of your other wheel...

Person pulling a tiny unicycle out of the clothes dryer. Caption: "Where's my other wheel."

no training wheel required!

(i love to say that when I meet mountainbikers on the trail, like: "oh you have still the trainings wheel on?" )
