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)

Water Bottle Mount Doohickey Thingy...

I want to put something different and/or funky in my water bottle mounts. I saw one bike with a wrench in it, but that seems entirely too functional. Any ideas?

If you ride brakeless, mount two brakes there, or a brake in one hole and the lever in th other. Make sure you connect the cable as well. Now that is clearly not too functional, that's for sure.

On the right track, but I don't drink. Anything else? Maybe I could do a brake lever on the downtube shifter, and run it to a brake lever mounted on the water bottle bosses.
