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)

It does (seen it somewhere), but it won't wrap all the way around. It's a u-shaped thing sitting on top (and down the sides) of your top tube, and it looks bad.

i just wrapped my top tube with a bandanna.

…seriously though… you need to take the banana out of the peel
and use just the peel. and it's two peels people, one is not enough protection.
