What did I do today?

I made a hat.

Swobo hat

Them 10-year old Swobo shorts you have lying in a crate somewhere? The ones that you could wear to the burlesque show and they’d ask you to ‘Cover your Shame’ ? Yeah. Those. Turn those into a nice head-warming beanie with a pair of scissors, a sewing machine and 5 minutes of saying ‘Fuck ! ‘ to no one in particular. Recycle and reuse whenever possible.

It’s just a shame my hair smells like balls.

  1. BP, you and the Gray wolf should start a biz making hand made cycling garb. Think – “purple and gold, with a white leather belt”

  2. LOL ” gray wolf ” I can see it now donut belt/ice cream holder.
    ohh shit i raced for a team way back that did this purple shit
    hella ugly.

  3. I went to fashion design school and was always told put someone else’s crotch on your head not your own, so that way people really never know how bad your shit stinks. Really Swobo has some badass stuff but it is getting way fucking pricey for the everyday commuter to wear.

  4. I DO have a ginormous melon. I wear a 63 helmet, and only the Giro models fit me. I guess it’s more like a rugby-ball than a football, but you get the idea.

    And yeah, Swobo stuff is insanely expensive BUT IN THEIR DEFENSE Those shorts were purchased in 1998, and i used them as my main pair for the BigRide 2000. (American Lung Association supported ride from Seattle to Washington D.C.) So after 2500 miles coast-to-coast and then another 6+ years of riding, I can SAFELY say I got my money’s worth. Now I’m just rocking the logo homemade-style.

    I’m working on a doughnut-soup energy drink. I’ll let you know how it works out.
