Default Buddhist Bicycle Jerseys

on 4/2/04 9:52 PM, Tim McNamara asserted:

Frankly, I find public
displays of faith as irritating as public displays of sexuality.


Indeed! There is nothing more repulsive than a man and a woman kissing or
even holding hands in public. It makes me wonder why people build houses
(or churches, temples, synagogues, etc.) at all.

IMHO the image presented isn't appealing as a cycling jersey in its
own right- the image has no connection to cycling in any way. Put
Hotei on a bike and maybe you've got something.


With the exception of possible exception of Kelme (just because it's a
sporting goods company, though they don't make any cycling gear, AFAIK) what
major sponsor of a professional cycling team has anything to do with cycling
or any sports? Is a Full Sail Ale or Ben and Jerry's jersey more
appropriate to our chosen recreation? People will brand themselves for many
reasons; affinity for a religion or religious figure seems as reasonable as
for a commercial product.

To the OP: is it Buddhism which says that if one paints a deity
incorrectly/poorly, in the next life the painter will suffer the
disfiguration that s/he depicted? Better do the graphic right.

I'm thinking about making a very small run of Buddhist-themed
bicycle jerseys.


A nice idea, although this image does not interest me. I would think
that adapting something such as teh ox drawings or perhaps the Dharma
Wheel would be more interesting and make it apropos for cycling. At
least for me, the overly devout approach lacking a bit of whimsy is
not appealing (for any faith).


I agree. A nice picture of Freya would be cool ... or even a stylized
Shiva.

Full Sail was formerly the beer supplier on Cycle Oregon and thus "earned"
their jersey.

I think the OP was being generic in his comment. Not specific, although
it could have been said better.

You haven't answered his question.

For me, I don't care. Anyone else?

Personally, I would stick to something less
controversial, like politics.


If someone gives a **** because there's a buddhist figure on a cyclist's
jersey, then they're the ones with the problem. Infact, if they're that
worried about all these 'controversial' religious references, I don't know
how they can even go out of the house... there's crosses everywhere, jesus
fish stuck on the back of millions of cars.. bumperstickers, etc. etc. Heck,
even if they stayed inside the house, there's television, with evangelist
channels and the trailer for the passion of the christ.

Peter W: Make whatever the hell jersey you want man...I'm not buddhist or
anything, but I think that design looks awesome. the colours in it are
great.
