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)

You know, you might not guess it, but duct tape adhesive really stinks. It's one of those things you wouldn't expect until you've wrapped an entire roll around your body

I thought about this a while ago, in my making-stuff-with-duct-tape phase (which seems to have abruptly ended right when my living-with-girlfriend phase began), and I never did it because I couldn't think of a way to make a properly adjustable duct tape strap. I considered just getting a regular canvas strap, but that would ruin the fun. So, does any of you geniuses have a notion for how to make the strap change length like a Manhattan Portage, Timbuk2, or BaileyWorks? I think duct tape might work in one of the plastic buckles that Timbuk2 uses, but I'm afraid it would get all torn up.

Adjustable strap == roll of duct tape & scissors in your bag. Ta da!

I made duct tape shoes once. They smelled as bad as anything i'd ever smelled after a night of partying in them. Your post was the first time it ever occured to me that it may not have been ENTIRELY my feet's fault.
