1998 MUni Weekend T-shirt question

I may put a design on the back of the shirt (the front is figured out). Which of
these three choices do you like better?

no brakes. no gears. no handlebars. no brains.

or

no brakes. no gears. no handlebars. no kidding.

or

no brakes. no gears. no handlebars. no coasting.

Thank you for your feedback!

BTW, you can order a MUni Weekend T-shirt even if you’re not going. We only make
a small quantity, and they’ll be instant collectors’ items. I don’t know what it
is about unicyclists and T-shirts, but we’re nuts about 'em.

If it ever gets that popular, half of us currently doing it will probably look
for the next thing other people “don’t” do. I’ll probably be out on the ice with
George Peck on an ultimate wheel with a studded tire…

I can see it now. Unicycling as a “cool” lifestyle thing. People wearing cycling
shorts and ridiculous T-shirts, even though they can’t ride. And buying the
coolest, most expensive unicycles available, even though they can barely ride.

Sound stupid? Look at mountain bicycling today.

The final choice was no brakes. no gears. no handlebars. no problem.

It basically says the same thing, but we unicyclists aren’t asking the reader to
believe it, we’re just saying it’s not that hard.

I’ve got your order. Where do you want them shipped? They will come with a
“free” pair of cycling shorts that I think are yours from the laundry when I
was in HK. I was going to give them to you at UNICON but they got left in my
hotel at NUC…

John, I wonder if you mean a design as in ONLY THE WORDS, perhaps sploched with
mud, but NOT depicting a unicycle?

MY FEEDBACK!!! …

Great thing you decided to do another T-Shirt. T-Shirts, like unicycles are a
great leveler in that anyone from any age group, nationality, sex, or culture
will appreciate a nice one! Even beginners or their non-rider friends can look
just as cool “In their T-Shirts” if not “On their Unis” as EXPERTS like you
John!!! And they’ll usually buy more (if they’re cool enough) as gifts for
family members / non-rider friends.

And way cool, clever designs stimulate curiosity among the mainstream non-rider
population which helps to spread our gospel on Non - Riding days! Maybe one day,
unicycling or M-uni or one of the other derivatives of our sport will become
“KOOL” or “CHIC” or “BAD” among even non-riders who will long to display Uni
logos on their store-bought clothes just as sailing / windsurfing /
mountain-biking now appear! Ever heard of a company called “Nautica” which makes
millions (hopefully) putting sailboats on every thing, and then selling them to
landlocked people aroubnd the world.

Our sport has no such geographic limitation, except that it’s difficult to ride
on small sailboats!!

Uni will then become a “Lifestyle,” or an “Attitude” instead of just a sport!
Cool, non “Clubby - looking” like the kind sold by Dustin and Gilby in
Bottrup are moving us into that direction. KOOL!!! Don’t you all agree that
these off the wall designs evoke curious responses from people in shopping
malls, buses, or on the street? Gilby’s E.T., and UNI Creature shirts go a
long way to this end!

Your proposed design, John … which is witty will also achieve the
same goal! It will also achieve another goal which is to MAKE the onlooker (if
he catches you wearing it when you’re not riding) look around you to see exactly
WHAT you’re talking about!

I assume you mean BIG BOLD LETTERS on the back of the T-Shirt with no picture of
a unicycle except on the front … which will explain it!!!

I “REALLY LIKE” this one:

>no brakes. no gears. no handlebars. no kidding.

And, even though I won’t be able to make it, want to order 4 pieces (2 XL) and
(2 M) to give to non-rider friends! “Kool”

P.S. BTW - Dustin’s “U.P.” shirt is a big hit in Manila, Philippines where
EVERYBODY seems to think it’s a witty take-off of some sport club at their
very own “U.P.” University of the Philippines!!! Thanks for the T-Shirt,
Dustin! Hope you’re enjoying mine.

S. T-Shirts off to those of you who "Push the limits" between sport and
attitude and do produce such attractive and innovative T-Shirts which have
broad appeal! That's why, John, they DO become "Instant Collector's items!

Thats about right, You ought to see all the people around here that carry around
full suspension bikes on their cars and hang out at the bike shops. This is
Louisiana! There is not a hill over 10’ high for 500 miles!
