Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

hot pink brake lever covers

I know most of you don't have brakes but do you know anywhere I could find hot pink brake lever covers for my road bike?

Have you tried searching for pink and hood in eBay's cycling section? I think I've run across them before...

i think you'll quickly realize that when you're looking for something as particular as "pink brake hoods," that you probably won't be able to exactly match the shade that you want.
