The Story behind the Teeezy Bicycle T-shirts Store
Bicycle T-Shirts and the lack of good designs
Note : Check this blog post if you want to read a more detailed history and what led to the creation of the Teeezy bicycle store.
Before I started the Teeezy store back in 2018, I was looking for something different regarding bicycle t-shirts. I'm a big bicycle fan and I browsed pages after pages of Google image search results and found nothing that was great enough for me to make a purchase commitment. Every t-shirt design that I saw was lacking something : cheap bicycle logos, uninspired slogans, cheap white cotton t-shirts, repetitive designs from site to site, etc. There was clearly some room for improvements for a bike lover looking for great bicycle t-shirts!
My background in bicycle and illustration
I've been a bicycle fan for longer than I can remember, but even before riding a bicycle, I was drawing. For fun first, as a kid, and eventually professionally, as I've been a freelance illustrator for more than 10 years. I knew quite a bit on both fronts and during my career, I always tried to have some implication in either drawing and illustration, bicycles or e-commerce. Combining these 3 passions gave birth to the Teeezy store, a business that I could work on, during my spare time and from anywhere I got an Internet connection. In this store, you will find bicycle t-shirts designs that are sometimes funny, sometimes darker or just a little geeky : I'm trying to offer bicycle t-shirts that I'd like to wear myself and I truly hope you like them too!
What kind of t-shirts are you going to find here?
The Teeezy store offers unique, cranky bicycle t-shirts for anyone. There will be no reason you can't look as good off the saddle than you are when riding. You're looking for a mountain bike t-shirt? We got it. Gravel bike t-shirt? Got it too. Maybe you're more into bicycle touring? Yes, we have that. Fatbiking in the coldest months of winter, yes, we got fatbike t-shirts too.
Is this the future of bicycle t-shirts?
No. Clearly not. What you're looking at today is the state of our collection as it is in the present. We're adding and removing t-shirts designs from time to time. For future designs, we'll try to stay funny and fresh and always get the bicycle spirit rollin'!
