Schlumpf engraving

When you buy a hub from Schlumpf you can have it engraved.

It could be your name, but I suppose it could be just about anything.

Any other ideas?

“Irrational Exuberance”
The phrase has some baggage but it sums up unicycling for me.

…But where’s the fun in that?

So far the best advice I got comes from my almost 10 year old son.

His suggestion: “Tactical Nuke”

:smiley: LOL… He’s the resident warfare expert and wiseguy.
And he probably envisions having this hub in a metal briefcase, opening it up and starting the countdown sequence by shifting it. :roll_eyes: :smiley:

I wonder if it would take longer to get through customs. :astonished:

The last hub came with a free engraving of my name as an apology for the long waiting period etc. I wonder if Florian will offer that again since I have been waiting even longer for this replacement hub than last time. I would like my name on both hubs but it’s okay if this one is without it.

Having ordered a KH/Schlumpf recently (and received it last week), I can confirm that the custom engraving is still at the order of the day, free of charge.

I tried to think about an alternative to the default “owner: firstname lastname” text, but ended up doing with it - having not taken the time to think about something funny or original.

Cheers, MadC.

PS: BTW, is it really an engraving? It rather feels like painting, when touching it softly with fingertips - actually, the exact same feel as the KH/Schlumpf logo itself painted (engraved?) on the hub as well.

I ended up going with my name too.

My guess, not having seen one, is that it is laser engraved. Very little material is removed this way.

Aluminum with black anodizing will turn white when engraved with a laser, and it does tend to have a textured feel.

Makes sense. Quite funny how indeed it seems “embossed” and not “engraved”!

Thanks for your comments…

Cheers, MadC.

Forum nick or signature? A worthy quotation? Your mailing address?
A friend of mine had his Nexus engraved with: Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn

What about “That’s why I can’t afford another wheel.” :stuck_out_tongue:

Good idea! Or “It’s in here.”

  • Magic Hub
  • Midlife Crisis
  • Instead of college tuition...
  • 1 x 2
  • Shift Me
  • This [I]IS[/I] My Other Wheel
  • Do Not Read This While Shifting

Nice! LOL

What does “1 x 2” mean?
Maybe it’s still too early in the morning for me.

In bicycle speak the first is the number of chain rings on the crank while the second is the number of sprockets on the rear cassette (e.g. 3 x 7 would give you 21 different gear ratios and 1 x 2 would be a two speed). In this case it’s also kind of pun-ny since it could refer to one wheel, two gears.

I like irony:

No brakes.
No handlebars.
No gears.
No problem!

Damn… grpfdzzztpffrtdggggd I want a Schlumpf :D:D:D

I didn’t know we could have it engraved though, nice touch !
Will keep that in mind when ordering (in the next weeks hopefully).

Thanks for the tip !

Should that not read; Two Gears :thinking:

Or what about

No brakes
No handlebars
No gears
No tanymore

He answered it better than I would have.

Just remember all of that was true when the original T-shirt was made!

Not on a Schlumpf that has brakes on the handlebars.
