    WOO! That even looks like a T-shirt I'd actually wear pretty regularly. What size are the stickers?

    That is amazing! I love it. One suggestion: a pair of water bottles, not just one. It's a bit OCD of me, but I usually don't use a mismatched set on my bike. If not possible, then, I'll use it at work. Thanks SO much. This is very cool.

  • @zenbike On my bike that this bottle matches, I've paired it with a regular blue Specialized Purist bottle. Color matches perfectly, just different graphics. Also different heights, but that works well on that particular bike.

  • Ah. Unfortunately, nothing in the UAE for Specialized.

  • I really like the way the water bottles look, but it took me a while to figure out what the four white spots on the shirt were. Not to complain--I'm very happy. :) Thanks for the nice gesture.

  • Will be proud to wear the shirt and equip the bottles. I'm with zenbike, though. Two bottles would be amazing, since it prevents a mismatch. Dec 6, 2012 at 7:14

Is this a regular thing? Can we have it again please?

  • answering to bump the thread in Meta, cos adding a comment doesn't do that.

    I'm not sure, but I was under the assumption that this was a sort of "graduation present" when the site hit a certain size. It hasn't happened again since they did it that first time.

  • @adamlear what would it take to do this again? Cash ?

    The main cost is the postage; it's more than the cost of the stuff. And if they did for us then they'd have to do it for all sites. Prohibitive.
