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)

ATTN: People in Japan!

I know there are a handful of people on this forum who are currently in Tokyo. I was wondering if any of you might be able to do me a quick favor and stop by the Kalavinka/Tsukomo Cycle Sports shop. I need a set of fork tips, and it would be much faster/easier/cheaper for me to paypal someone than to mail a $5 money order to Japan.

Drop me a PM if you'd be willing to help out.

Is there a place in this town where I can rent a godzilla costume (and maybe some buildings)?

The lack of ability to embed youtube links on this forum is occasionally frustrating.

Fork tips are the little doo-dads that look like this:



They can be found on the "materials" page of the Kalavinka site... I think the pair is around $10 or $11 dollars.

I might actually be OK - but thanks very much for offering. I'll drop you a PM if I still need them.
