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)

there are many people who make and sell them but i don't know of any corporations or actual registered businesses.

best bet is to find a sewing machine you can use and make it yourself out of your material of choice.

art supply or a sewing supply store, it is 1/8 inch white or green colored closed cell foam sheet and sold by the sheet or by the yard usually .
or you could go to the hardware store and get the black pipe insulation foam.

or i guess you could use pillow batting if you were balling on a budget. and just cut open and old pillow.
