    Would you buy this T-shirt???

    Found this on a fixie hipster site and thought it was pretty cool. No clue how to find it to buy it, though. Gear ratio seems to be a big deal to some of us, and being able to parade through the streets displaying you super high gear on your chest may be a bigger deal. What do you all think?

    what do you both mean? I'm simply asking if you'd buy the t-shirt, write down your SS ratio with a sharpie marker, and wear it.

    I'd write, "bigger than yours."

    I'm sorry, I just meant no. I wouldn't buy it.

    I'm not clever enough to come up with something, er, clever...

    Nope.

    Even though most people ask my gear ratio I'd rather write it on my chainstay but I'll wrote less cog teeth so they would amaze how strong I am.

    And I agree with sparty 'BIGGER than yours".

    Unfortunately, I'd probably have to write "smaller than yours".......

    I would wear it with my skinny jeans, pointy beanie-cap, and toms when I ride my urban outfitters fixie to starbucks for a caramel cappuccino.

    No no Andy, I fear there's a misunderstanding. I doubt my ratio is actually bigger than yours or anyone else's. It's not about ratios, it's about what the shirt says. Put your actual ratio in there and the shirt owns you. Leave it blank or put a flip comment in there and you own the shirt.

    If someone actually gave me the shirt and I decided to wear it, I'd never wear it to any bike related function. Major social faux pas! I'd probably leave it unmarked and wear it to family reunions (not MY family, of course) or NRA meetings or shopping excursions at the Gateway Mall (no, not really). Then if anyone saw the shirt and understood it and asked me what my ratio really is, I'd say, "Huh? I dunno." THAT'S how to really own that t-shirt If you ask me.

    Not that anyone did.

    Gear ratio and knee pain are directly proportional. This shirt lets the arthroscopic surgeons know who to put the hard sell on.

    directly proportional? seems like you'd want some data to make a claim like that. higher gear inches = some higher rate of injury? i doubt it. riding SS has the potential to build and strengthen your knee.

    getting facts (and math) right should be important to SS riders.
