Fight Cancer, and Look Good While You’re Doing It

02.6.2009 | 11:05 am

Today is the big LiveStrong Fundraiser over at Twin Six: half of everything they sell today will go toward the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

And, evidently, you people are taking advantage of the opportunity to get some great clothes while you fight cancer: so far today, they’ve sold $4800 $7700 $12,246 $16,530 worth of clothing, meaning $2400 $3850 $6123 $7500 $8,265 (!!!) goes to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.


Love Is In The Air200902060914.jpg

I’d like to highlight a few things you might want to look into over at Twin Six. First up, be sure to check out their “T-Shirt of the month.”

Look at that: the wheels make a heart. Adorable!

Available in both women’s and men’s sizes, the Wheel Love T would make a splendid Valentine’s gift. Or you could buy one for yourself to make people think someone else bought you a Valentine’s gift.

Hey, you do what you gotta do.

Like all Twin Six T-Shirt’s of the Month, the Wheel Love T is trictly limited to 100. They won’t last through today. If you want one (or more), go order now.

Cool Stuff You Should Wear

Far be it from me to tell you what to wear on — or off — your bike, but Twin Six has got some pretty darn cool designs. Here’s just a sampling.

Now, go browse Twin Six and buy whatever suits you. And think about the fact that half of whatever you spend is going toward the fight against cancer. Click any of the images below to go to that catalog page on the Twin Six site.



For200902060921.jpg All You People Who Wondered When You Could Get a Fat Cyclist Jersey, The Answer Is NOW.

A couple times per day, I get email from folks asking when they can get a Fat Cyclist jersey. Well, the answer is: right this second. While doing inventory, Twin Six found one box of Men’s Fat Cyclist jerseys. There aren’t many, though, so I promise you these will not last through the day.

If you want one, better go get one. [UPDATE: Medium is sold out]

[UPDATE 2: Large is sold out.]

Also, there are a few Fat Cyclist jerseys in Women’s Medium size. These won’t last long, either. [UPDATE: These are sold out.]

And by the way, I love the fact that half of your Fat Cyclist jersey purchase will go toward Team Fatty’s fight against cancer.

Everyone Loves the Fat Cyclist Wooly

200902060723.jpgWant to know a little secret? When I took the photos of Susan’s new jewelry, I used my new Fat Cyclist Long-Sleeved Wool jersey as the backdrop.

That’s an unusual use case, but still.

The thing is, I love this jersey. It is the nicest-looking, best-feeling long-sleeve jersey I have ever owned. And judging from some of the unsolicited comments from yesterday’s post, I’m not the only one who thinks this thing is a comfortable work of art.

Here’s the thing, though. There were — as of this morning — only 25 of them. As of right now, you can still get one in most sizes , but I kind of doubt that will be the case for the whole day.

Sure, they’re expensive — $150. But consider this: for your $150 you’re getting a really excellent jersey, and making a $75 donation toward fighting cancer. That kicks butt.

A few 2008 Fat Cyclist T-shirts were printed with the cursive “Cyclist” in orange-with-white-shadow instead of the correct white-with-orange-shadow. There are only a few, and they’re only in Men’s Medium and XXXL.

I guess it’s a good thing that the Twin Six guys — not me — do what they do, because I am pretty certain I would never have noticed the problem. Trust me folks, you don’t want me doing quality control.

Someday, these will be worth thousands, but for right now, you can get one for $16.

    Large are out now too. Had one in my basket and by the time I got my credit card out it was gone. Boo. Couldn’t get the pint glasses either. Oh well. Did pick up some Fatty socks and the Bike Nerd bundle.

    Dang! So close…

    Also disappointed I missed out on the Large jersey. Fatty – are they still working on a special jersey for the Livestrong events?

  4. Comment by JDogg | 02.6.2009 | 12:20 pm

    If there is a special jersey, I hope it can coordinate with the rest of the new style of shorts/socks.

    I have no money…my CC has a balance that I’m not liking…but I need a new pair of bib-shorts. Hey, it’s for a great cause and I missed out on the bike giveaway…so I’m gonna bite the bullet and get me a pair of bibs.

    D’oh! I didn’t even realize the wheels were a heart! I got a Fat Cyclist tee (to match the jersey I got for Christmas).

    Yay for Twin Six!

    sold! thanks for the reminder. My credit card had been getting dusty.

    Way to go Twin Six.

    Michael – yes we are creating a special Team Fatty jersey. In fact, I hope to unveil it within the next couple weeks.

    JDogg – yes, the Team Fatty jersey is specifically geared to work with the shorts and armwarmers.

    thanks for asking!

    I heart Twin Six!

    I had to get a Cupertino Jersey. I live there. I have cancer. Hooray for twin six

    Fat Cyclists are the bestest fundraisers in the whole wide world…go team go!

    Elden – as a new cyclist I stumbled upon your site while trying to read as much as I can about cycling. What a great site and a great cause! I just ordered my first jersey!

  15. Comment by Dave | 02.6.2009 | 4:38 pm

    Just picked up 4 tee’s, including the Fatty. XXXL, so the name will fit the rider! Of course, now I’m having second thoughts and shoulda bought MORE.

    $12,246 in sales!!! That’s just amazing! I’d be interested to know if that’s the best single day of sales that T6 has had. I can’t imagine that they’ve had a better day. Way to go T6!!!!

    Can’t wait for the Livestrong Fatty shirt to make it’s debut.

  17. Comment by Jim Hart | 02.6.2009 | 6:44 pm

    Just ordered my Jersey! Fatty Jersey, of course…

    XL … OF COURSE !!!!

    Thanks Eldon.

    OK, whoever took the last Medium misprint T, ya could have at least thrown away the box instead of leaving it lying on the kitchen counter. Now there’s ants everywhere.

    Oh wait.. that’s pizza slices, not T-shirts.

  19. Comment by joliver3 | 02.6.2009 | 9:21 pm

    Just ordered up a pair of FC bib shorts. Been thinking about it, and the Livestrong donation seemed like the perfect excuse.

    Rock on, T6 and FC! WIN Susan!

  20. Comment by stuckinmypedals | 02.6.2009 | 11:12 pm

    Just picked up a hat and pretty pink FC t-shirt. Great stuff, great cause, great company. WIN Susan!

    Unrelated to this post, but interesting article about a recent bike thief arrested that may interest readers.

  22. Comment by Mike Roadie | 02.7.2009 | 6:15 am

    Cant do wool here, but I ordered 3 really good looking t-shirts!


  23. Comment by Jouni | 02.7.2009 | 10:53 pm

    T6 absolutely kicks butt. I had just ordered some stuff from them, but when I saw the chance to contribute to the Team, I couldn’t resist. 2 Tees for mee, 2 for my wife.
    Go Team, and thanks to T6 and Elden.

    I love my Fat Cyclist long sleeve jersey. It is indeed amazingly comfortable, and makes a long ride in 40-50 degree weather much more enjoyable.

    The donation to fight cancer aspect is icing on the cake.

    I pre ordered the Fat Cyclist wool jersey a few months back. Got it a couple of weeks ago. Well worth the wait.
