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)

Three BaileyWorks Questions I've Never Seen Asked Here Before

Which is not to say that they haven't been, but I didn't find anything.

1. Has anyone ever replaced the strap on their SuperPro? BW advertises that it's one of the advantages of their removable, ambidexterous setup, but I was wondering if anyone had ever ordered a new strap from them, and maybe how much it costs.

2. Female BW owners: is the SuperPro strap comfortable? It's the most comfortable, body-hugging bag I've ever worn and I love it, but I'm, uh, not womanly-shaped, so I was wondering if there might be any issues there.

3. Does anyone have a BaileyWorks duffel? They look nice on the site, but the limited pictures make it kind of hard to get any kind of real idea.

Word; thanks TIP. Another one:

4. Regarding the options list on the website, why does it cost an extra $10 to not get the reflective tape on the shell, and what is the "old-school strap?" Is it just the cloth, nonsplit one that comes on the regular BW bag?

I think they meant 'Old-School Strop', as in the thing barbers use to sharpen a straight razor. Now THAT's old school.
