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)

Harlequin Wrap: 1st attempt

so i've been meaning to try out the harlequin wrap for a while now, finally got it done today. pretty good for a first try i might say? not quite as tight as i think i could do next time, but it'll work. i wrapped basic foam tape first for padding, then did the cotton wrap over it. might not look like it (crappy camera) but it's bright red and black.
