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)

Any So Cal FG's?

Just curious if they make flip flops for clipless or if the straps hurt the top of your feet.

No flip flops, but there are strapped sandals that you can get. The pricey Shimano ones, or cheaper ones from Nashbar & Exustar that are more opened-up. Most people say SPD sandals are quite comfortable both on and off the bike, but feel too flexy while pedaling.
