but I don't know those guys.....
My experience with the fixed gear toptube pad thing is minimal. I've actually only ever seen a couple of photos of the things and never a 'real' one.
One of my friends though, had me build a bike for him and it came time over this past few days for him to do an upgrade, off the top of his head, he asked me to make him a frame pad (and I touched his shoulder and said "Bam!! You're a frame pad").
Given that I know nothing of the things (and the fact that I know my friends to be particularly fickle when it comes to stuff like this i.e., I make this stuff and they decide they don't want it after all. Note to self: Get better friends), along with my fear of water+dirt getting under it and destroying the steel frames finish, I spent 14 hours designing and fabricating this.
It's made to be easily removable (so that you can clean and dry underneath it easily) and covers around 75% of the tubes circumference. Goatkin leather, hand edged and cut. Whaddya all think?
