ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Podium Cycling sells this boss Pee-Wee Herman skinsuit for your Big Adventures. They also do Spider-Man and various other novelties (light-up Tron, "hipster," etc), but Pee-Wee takes the cake.
Pee-wee Inspired Skinsuit
(Thanks, Fipi Lele!)
could use the world champion rainbow stripes on the leg hem.
Oh hell yeah!
“Pee-wee takes the cake.”
Wasn’t that the name of his last movie?
Awesome and I wish I had the body shape to get away with those cycling outfits.
Too big in the shoulders.
They could make a Francis skinsuit for full-figured cyclists.
I want to be a Cowboy Morpheus
“E-everyone wanted my bike. Why, just last week, Francis offered me… FFFFFRRRRRRANCISSSSSSSSSS!!!!”
Very nice. I don’t understand the circle around the crotch though.
Usually padding and some extra material to resist the wear that comes with a lot of cycling.
Unfortunate that they didn’t go with a lighter grey for seam.
First reading, i thought you wrote lighter grey for semen
There’s a lotta things about me you don’t know anything about, Dottie…
I still use the “I’m a loner, Dottie…” line and it’s the rare soul that gets it.
Then you don’t understand Pee Wee Herman.
Hm, I’m doing a charity ride in May, having trouble getting donations. Maybe if I promise to dress as Peewee or Superman and post pics…
We’re pulling for you PeeWee!
And PeeWee is pulling for you, too.
What, too soon? Too late?
Sure, but you’d probably get your bike stolen if you wore it.
SSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! — I’M TRYING TO USE THE PHONE!!!!
One of the past years in RAGBRAI had someone riding in a full Captain America costume, complete with foam rubber muscles, and a little shield on the front of his handlebars. Not sure how he stood the heat in Iowa in the last week of July. There was a guy last year who had a full-body (including full head mask) tie-dye leotard. RAGBRAI is pretty incredible, it wouldn’t surprise me to find out that someone rode the whole thing (across Iowa from west to east) with a Pee-Wee Herman costume on a faithful reproduction of his bike.
So, do you do the whole RAGBRAI ride with that eye-patch? :D
Heh, no. Depth perception is a good thing when riding in a group.
eh, that’s breddy gud, I guess. During my tenure as a messenger here in Atlanta, I went as Pee Wee for my first Halloween. Full thrift store costume, and my bike was already red, then I added some chrome fenders to it. The part that solidified my rep in the messenger community was, at Ms. Vaughn the clerk’s behest (she was dressed as a witch,) I did the Pee-Wee dance on the counter of the Fulton County Superior Court clerk’s office. I had “Tequila” on my walkman with an amplified speaker. When I went up on my toes, the whole office erupted into bedlam.
I heard they manufacture these in the basement of the Alamo.
its not something they tell you in school, it’s just something you have to experience for yourself
