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)

top tube pad project

I want a top tube pad/protector, but not a real one. It would actually be a cleverly disguised way to conceal a small tool kit, tube and pump. Anybody ever done anything like this? I wanna try and do this, I have some ideas. I'd just strap the stuff to my bike but I'm afraid it'd get stolen.

i actually thought about sticking a pump and tube in my reload top tube pad. I am not sure if the pump would fit but the tube would probably. what kinda design are you thinking of?

Wrap tube around frame, cut out parts of foam to allow tools and pump
