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)

who made your top tube pad?

Do you like it? I'm looking at getting one to prevent scratches.

DIY. It's dirty and ugly but it works.

ShopGentei. Oliver made them under the pen name "Sly & Robby" - a brand he started while living in JP. I like the punk pad and the circle jerks pad as well [to go with your group sex vans shoes]

$25 shipped if I remember correctly.

The only thing I dislike about frame pads is that they always get bunched up when I skid. Sometimes when I hocky skid, I use the inside of my leg on the TT and it becomes a constant game of re-adjusting the pad.

I really like the woodgrain saddle and polka-dot frame pad. Makes it look like some extinct bird....

Vinyl tape with a bit of thin styrofoam padding beneath it. If you're careful, it can look quite nice.

jesus built my top........


i meant hotrod, really!

speaking of top tube pads....sure the fixed gear kids have used them to death but i think they work for almost all bikes if you live in a city where you lock up to crap all the time....they are also great for when you live in a house with stairs

Yeah man, I took my road bike out last night and I'm pissed it got all scuffed up when I locked it up. I might put a TTP on it too. Totally non-OCP, but whateves. Utility > Fashion
