Hi. Love Cyclelicious.
Hope to win a shirt!
I could use a new shirt. Wife doesn't appreciate all my holey ones.
Well, here's my contest entry.
BTW, that Boardman bike is awesome!
Calitexican: I didn't think about locked twitter accounts. No, I won't see them unless I'm already following you.
cyclelicio.us rules. Now, can I have the shirt, please? :-)
Unless I'm disqualified for having gotten a dead tree copy of Urban Velo from you.
I have the same comment as Mark S. does that count? What an awesome idea for a giveaway. :D

I pitty the comment that does not win me a shirt.

WIN a free shirt
I enjoy when good blogs have contests. Yay for somebody winning stuff!
My favorite b minus shirt is the bike <3 for sure.
Definitely "bike <3"
I like the bike <3 the best.
Unicycles are #1
I like the unicycle convention.
Love the <3 bikes over the heart. Couldn't say it better myself.
Bicycles are for Lovers is my favorite, hands down. I want!
Wait, no-one liked the "bicycles are for lovers"? I'm now feeling self-conscious.
Definitely "Bicycles are for lovers"!
I like Bicycles are for Lovers!!
the unicycle convention by a nose...
I absolutely love the "Bicycles are for lovers" design. It can be my tandem until I can convince the mister to get a real one.
I LOVE Bicycles r for LOVERS!! And I just found these - IN LOOOOVE!
Daw, even if I don't win one, I might have to pick up that Bike <3 shirt. Too cute!
Definitely the unicycle convention. I think that the other ones are cool though don't set themselves apart enough from other novelty tee-shirts, especially with the text on the lovers one. Nonetheless, I would still wear them!
yay for contests
bike <3 for me too.
definitely bookmarking the b minus site now
My favorite is the Bike <3 shirt! Thanks for the contest, Yokota!
I am absolutely loving the cheery yellow "bike <3" shirt. Almost as much as I love my bike. Vive la bicycle!
I like unicycle convention.
The blue on blue unicycle convention shirt is pretty cool but I think I like the bike <3 one the best!
That Bicycles are for Lovers t-shirt makes me smile the most.
Unicycle convention. I keep thinking about getting one after seeing a bunch of them ride Strawberry Fields Forever 100k some years back.
Bicycles are for lovers!
My favorite is "Bicycles are for lovers"
But, they're all great shirts. Way to go B-minus!
bicycles are for lovers. cute.
I can't decide, but I don't ride a uni so I'll have to go with bike love or bikes are for lovers.
Unicycles for the win
i'm casting my vote for "unicycle convention". it's so happy!
"Bicycles are for Lovers"
Because it's TRUE!
My favorite b minus shirt is definitely "bike <3". I like this because my regular commuter is an Xtracycle-equipped Surly Big Dummy with a custom double-child seat snapdeck replacement. Since I ride with my two kids all the time, the t shirt would be very appropriate for me. Our Big Dummy is mathematically less then the three of us.
(i'm a fella sayin this, if that matters) -- my favorite shirt is the bicycles are for lovers!
bike <3, definitely.
Thanks for the entries, all! I'm closing comments now and will select winners soon. There will be one winner from the blog comments and another winner from Twitter. Stay tuned!
WIN: Look Quartz Mountain Bike Pedals
Free bike bell!
Free bell! Wheeeeeeeeee!
bells make bikes happier
I want a bell!
I would love a bell.
My new Xtracycle could use a bell...
ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for me ...
I'm as mad as bell!! And I'm not going to take it anymore!
Call me a curmudgeon, but I don't think bells make bikes happy--they make them annoying. I don't like bells, but, alas, I need one. I've moved to a place where the MUVs have signs that say, "Cyclists must give warning," or some such silliness. That means, instead of simply staying to the right accepting that there are other, faster path users, pedestrians, joggers and plugs of cyclists take up the whole path, expecting others to issue directions. I'm glad roads don't work that way, or the din of horns would be unbearable. So, I need a bell. In fact, I need two--one for my daughter's trail-a-bike. She'll enjoy using it. Thanks, Ron Georg.
i want one!!!!
Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring my Bell.
I'm riding along Need to pass but hate to yell Much prefer the bell
Guess what! I got a fever! And the only prescription is more "bike bell"!
Ding ding, I want a too-cool bike bell! Yay!
Free bells make me happy!!!
Is it possible to hear this bell before I commit to trying to win it? One should not just rush all willynilly into such an important decision.
woo hoo! ring ring!
If I win, I think I'll give the bell to a noobie bike commuter. Fun!
I suppose if I don’t win I get the NoBell Prize :)
My new fixed gear commuter needs a bell.
i would love a bike bell for my new bike!
Oh boy do I ever need a bike bell.
Now that my bike commute is on a fairly heavily used path, I need a bell. There are too many walkers and runners using earphones and seem to think they're the only ones on the trail.
free bell pleaaase!
I'm just happy with the nice pictures of bikes & their riders, but if I can get a bell, all the better. My little girl just started getting into the Trail-A-Bike, and would love to have some way to make noise. The picture above makes me think I need to take her riding over in Santa Cruz.
Every time you hear a bell ring, it means that some angel's just got his wings.
Why not? One can never have too many bike bells!
I really need a bell for riding here in Portland, OR.
This would be great to win!
My bike bell got hosed in a recent crash. It said "I ♥ my mom." I was very said to see it die. A new bell would bring a wee smile to my face.
Rocky Balboa: Ah, just keep punchin', Apollo... you want to ring the bell? Apollo Creed: Alright... Ding Ding.
Ring-a-ling! A free bell sounds swell.
PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THIS CONTEST!
I want a free bicycle bell, and the more people who enter, the less chance I'll have of getting one. ;)
BIKE BELL PLZ
My kid sure could use a bike bell. Her bell just broke yesterday. Hope I'm not too late to enter.
I'm closing comments now and will pick a winner soon. Thank you so much for playing!Congratulations to the winners -- I loved all of your comments about bike bells! Among the commenters here the winners are:
