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)

Look what I found under the tree.

I don't know where the toe clips came from. They're Christophes. All I need now is some white double straps.

i had a pair of the KKT (?) or whatever NJS version of those leather covered clips and they busted on me. never had a toe clip break except for the fancy NJS ones. go figure.

Santa brought me white double toe straps (or rather, santas bringing them on wednesday)

I got some good components today, I'm happy. I gave my friend a functional 4" tall fixed gear bike that I found in an indonesian import store.

edit: oh, I had the ktt leather covered clips, too, but be careful about them bumping the ground. the front's totally frayed on mine and look kinda ratty :/
