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)

search ebay, there's some on there now. might be leather, which would be better than nylon anyhow. and in a whitish color too.

reason onewhy not to buy leather: not water resistant, thus more easliy breakable/ snapable.
reason two: im vegan. leather is a no no
reason three: i currently run a pair of the nylon synth laminate and have been for te past 3 years. there has only been a minimal amount of stretch, very little discolouration, and they are sturdy as ****.

thanks for the type though.better luck next time
