2011 Fat Cyclist T-Shirts: Dangerously Cool, Available Now (And Fat Cyclist Hoodies and Trainers are 30% Off)

12.15.2010 | 8:37 am

If you’re like me — and for your sake, I hope you are, because it’s really awesome being me — you wear a t-shirt every day. Which is fantastic, because when you wake up in the morning, the ancient question of “What to Wear Today” is quickly solved.

The internal dialogue goes like this:

Me: “Hmm. I wonder what I ought to wear today.”

Other Me: “How about a t-shirt?”

Me: “That’s a fantastic idea. Thanks! But what should I wear for the bottom?”

Other Me: “I recommend wearing the same jeans you wore yesterday, because they’re nice and stretched out now, and will fit more comfortably than a freshly-washed pair of jeans.”

Me: “You’re exactly right. Thanks, voice inside my head!”

Other Me: “You’re welcome.”

Sadly, however, the choice to wear a t-shirt every day does come with a minor downside: laundry. Due to the absolute certainty that you will at some point spill food or wipe chain grease on your shirt (plus cumulative body odor and general grossness), you need to wear a clean shirt every day.

I am here to help. Specifically, I’m here to help you stave off doing laundry by one more day by presenting the new, 2011, Fat Cyclist T-Shirt Collection.

Check it out:


This shirt is now available now (yes NOW!) at Twin Six, in both men’s and women’s cuts.

Just in case you’re wondering where the “No, you go on” quote comes from, by the way, it’s from “How to Be Last,” and it’s a very good quote to have top-of-mind, as well as front-of-chest.

“But wait a moment, Fatty,” I hear you say. “What did you mean by ‘2011 Fat Cyclist T-Shirt Collection?’ Doesn’t a ‘collection’ generally mean that there is more than one thing to collect?”

To that I admiringly reply, “You are so astute.” Here’s the other new Fat Cyclist 2011 T-shirt:


This quote, of course, comes from The Wit and Wisdom of Dr. Michael Lämmler, and this shirt is available now in men’s and women’s cuts.

These shirts have many fine qualities, including:

  • They’re 100% cotton. Except the tags. I’m pretty sure the tags aren’t cotton.
  • They’re super-soft. We had considered going with merely “soft,” but then I pounded my fist on the table and yelled, “Soft won’t do! These are my readers! They demand and deserve super-soft!” And the Twin Six guys totally caved. Pushovers.
  • Made in the USA. And you can bet that’s got China pretty upset.
  • Black, so you can wipe chain grease on them with total impunity
  • Guaranteed to push laundry day forward another day. Or two, if you buy both shirts.
  • Both shirt designs have a blank back, like this:


I daresay if you order these shirts immediately you’ll get them before Christmas. But you’d better order two (of each), because otherwise, you’ll get them and love them so much that you will keep them for yourself instead of giving them as gifts, as you originally intended. And then someone’s feelings are going to be hurt on Christmas.

And that would be very sad indeed.

Fat Cyclist Hoodies and Trainers 30% Off Today Only

Today is the last day of Twin Six’s awesome “6 Days of Christmas” promotion, and today they’re taking 30% off the price of all bags, wool trainers, wool jerseys, long-sleeve t-shirts, thermals, and hoodies.

And that, my friends, includes Fat Cyclist gear. So may I recommend that today is the absolute best day for you to pick yourself up a Fat Cyclist Wool Trainer:


I love mine — it’s a comfortable, classy-looking trainer, feels like a really nice, warm, totally non-itchy sweater. I’m wearing it right now. They usually cost $190, but today they’re much more affordable at $133. Click here to get yourself one. And then you — like The Runner and I — can look like Buddy Holly and do the Trainer Dance.

Or, if you’re looking for something more casual, maybe you should get yourself a Fat Cyclist Hoodie:


And here’s the back:


These things are so comfortable they border on the indecent; I wear mine (over a Fat Cyclist T-Shirt, of course) about three days a week.

The hoodies are already a screaming deal at their normal price of $40, but today they’re $28, which is approaching ridiculously inexpensive. My guess is these will sell out quickly today, so if you’re going to get one (for you or for someone else or both), you might want to do it now.

The hoodies come in men’s-specific and women’s-specific fits. The Runner tells me that the women’s -specific ones fit a little small, so you may want to go up a size.

And, in closing, may I recommend you check out the rest of the Fat Cyclist gear as you do your Christmas shopping, not to mention all the other awesome goodness Twin Six has on sale today.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    Fatty and Twin Six, you have outdone yourselves this time. I don’t know how the Twin Six guys manage to make shirts fabricated from pure sarcasm, but the shirts are genius!

  2. Comment by Bee T | 12.15.2010 | 9:14 am

    I asked for a hoodie for Christmas, and my hubby got a squashy bag which he promptly hid. Can’t wait!!

  3. Comment by RL Julia | 12.15.2010 | 9:39 am

    These are awesome, but shouldn’t the sweep quote go on the back of the shirt so people can read it in fact allowing you to actually ride sweep?

  4. Comment by Stephanie | 12.15.2010 | 9:46 am

    The hoodies are awesome, I can’t wait to get mine!

    I love my hoodie!

  7. Comment by DeanS | 12.15.2010 | 10:20 am

    Just ordered a hoodie from Twin Six. That is a really great price,

  8. Comment by Squirrelhead | 12.15.2010 | 10:30 am

    I may have to order a second hoodie for that price. That way when one is in the wash I won’t have to be without it. Shirts are great and ordered.

  9. Comment by Bryan | 12.15.2010 | 10:39 am

    Sweet! Loosing weight… What size do I pick?! Started at 177 now down to 172.4 (-4.6lbs) with a week and a half to go! Pressure is on!

  10. Comment by buckythedonkey | 12.15.2010 | 11:28 am

    I’d be interested to know how your training jacket as stood up to repeated washing. Seriously tempted…

    Great to hear from the good Doctor after so long!

    how about a fatcyclist tie or something for those that have to dress up for work?

  12. Comment by AngieG | 12.15.2010 | 12:43 pm

    No truer statement from a real fat cyclist. “No You Go On. I’m riding sweep today”… Classic!

    Can we put that on a jersey too?

  13. Comment by Mandy | 12.15.2010 | 12:48 pm

    Love it! I already have the sweatshirt. I am such a Fatty groupie.

  14. Comment by Fat Cathy | 12.15.2010 | 12:52 pm

    Love my hoodie too – tempting to buy another one. The Runner is right, they do run a bit small. One size up would be more comfy than my regular size.

    BTW, I love all of my twin six cycling clothing from this recent batch. The fit is perfect and the quality is very high. The long sleeve jersey is amazingly soft and warm.

    I thought you said you didn’t have time to write much!

  16. Comment by Erik | 12.15.2010 | 1:52 pm

    “The you go on, I’ll ride sweep” should be on the back, so passing cyclists and other passers-by can see it. Having it on the front forces them to turn around and look at you, which could cause them not to pay attention to where they are going, because they would be looking at your awesome Twin Six Team Fatty collectors edition t-shirt, and would therefore be distracted and collide with another cyclist or other inanimate object, thus causing a crash of cataclysmic proportions, possibly resulting in bodily harm, various mechanical entanglements, and other nefarious outcomes.

    This in turn might result in torn, shredded, mangled or otherwise damaged articles of clothing of Twin Six manufacture, which might therefore necessitate replacement of said damaged apparel by the expenditure of copious amounts of disposable and non-disposable income at Twin Six dot com.

    I see now. This is a nefarious plot.

    NO!!!! The Large Hoodie is sold out. I went from super excited to really bummed in a keystroke. That’s what I get for being to slow. Bummer.

  18. Comment by Dr. Lammler | 12.15.2010 | 2:52 pm

    Why would I want a shirt with such a ridiculous quote?

    Oh. Never mind.

  19. Comment by Weiland | 12.15.2010 | 3:06 pm

    I’m holding out for the “Shut up jelly donut” shirt.

  20. Comment by Scott R | 12.15.2010 | 4:51 pm

    Those shirts are so yesterday… when I placed my ’sweep’ order.

    Already have and love the hoodie, and just don’t know if I should spend the $ on the trainer.


  21. Comment by Scott | 12.15.2010 | 6:40 pm

    I was relieved to learn that Dr. L. is not a pop culture psychotherapist with a radio talk show.

  22. Comment by JAT in Seattle | 12.16.2010 | 10:52 am

    I sat behind a guy in a Fat Cyclist hoodie at my kid’s martial arts belt test on Saturday; I immediately wanted one, but we’d probably end up at the next belt test wearnig the same thing and that might be awkward…

  23. Comment by Mark | 12.16.2010 | 2:01 pm

    you MUST make the sweep into a jersey, but it has to be on the back…

  24. Comment by mainemtb | 12.16.2010 | 3:41 pm

    Hey Fatty!

    Can we get the “sweep” graphic as a tech tee? And some size between “large” and “XXXlarge”?! I’d buy that for group rides….

  25. Comment by NoTrail | 12.16.2010 | 3:44 pm

    Order placed for 1 jersey and 2 shirts. Twin 6 jerseys are great, but they are usually out of my size in the styles I desire. :(

    Any plans on having Team Fat Cyclist for the 2011 Livestrong Challenges? (Hint: The answer should be yes.)

  26. Comment by Nathan | 12.16.2010 | 6:43 pm

    Cool products. I bet you never thought this blog would go this far. I’m sure glad it did though.

    Weight keeps going down…..I might just make it.
    lbs lost: 7.3

  27. Comment by roan | 12.16.2010 | 8:00 pm

    Aye ! the large hoodie sold out so I ordered the XL, should be OK & a T too.
    But that’s not my reason for a comment, the reason is the earlier post…THE TWO GREATEST CYCLING PHOTOS I HAVE EVER SEEN…WOW !
    I need to ride there, drove thru years ago in January. Quite stunning, red/orange rocks, sage in muted green/grey and deep blue sky. Nothing better except The Runner.

  28. Comment by mountynbyker | 12.16.2010 | 8:03 pm

    Please, please have more ‘you go on’ t-shirts, hoodies, and jersies made up. My size is already sold out.

  29. Comment by Cyclin' Missy | 12.16.2010 | 8:12 pm

    Hey, Fatty! You made Bike Snob NYC today!

  30. Comment by Mike Roadie | 12.17.2010 | 6:26 am

    This weight loss thing is killing me! I am hard at work at it, but it shouldn’t make one feel so bad….or hungry!

    I ordered the Santa T a few days ago–wish I could have grouped the shipping together to save a few $$$!

  31. Comment by Mark in Boise | 12.17.2010 | 7:31 am

    Another vote for the “sweep” quote on the back, still it is a great line. Oh, off topic and something to add to your potential events list for next year. The US mountain bike national championships will be held in Sun Valley Idaho July 14-17. Just so everyone knows.

  32. Comment by WheelDancer | 12.17.2010 | 7:22 pm

    Loved the Dr. L post as much this time as the first time, what a hoot.
