Greg Bloom is the proud owner of this original 2B sweatshirt. He gave it to Leigh as a gift for me and it was this very sweatshirt that sparked this whole project when Leigh put a photo of it on facebook. Thanks Greg!
This shirt was technically called the “Hardcore” though most everybody knows it as the “For Men With 20 Inchers” shirt. The 20 inchers, for you non bmxers out there, refers to the size of a BMX biceyle wheel. This was one of 2B’s first designs and definitely our all-time best seller. The artwork is by Steve Buddendeck and the photo in the upper right is me jumping over a shopping cart. The very first year we made it, the shirt looked a little different and had a random bike on the front (see below.)
We enjoy hearing stories of people who got in trouble wearing this shirt to school.
