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)

They can be found here: http://www.courierkit.com/pages/prod...hueybrand.html. If they don't have them in stocl I am not sure. I tried to get in touch with them a few months ago and had no luck. Yanco Pads makes some great cycling caps, you may want to check them out.

Hmm, Those hats on ebay are fairly utilitarian looking, where as the Chuey ones and many others have at least some style and function.

...but do we really have to get into that "You all just want to look cool" stuff again? This is a thread about a hat, for crying out loud.

The owners were struck by a sudden epiphany that their caps are silly and pretentious, and that doing business from a myspace page is even more so. They have gone into making wax toilet gaskets and selling them wholesale to plumbing supply houses.

http://www.veloclothes.com/prod1.aspx!Product_ID!1344 is a plain hat with the champion stripe, and coolmax ones are http://www.headsweats.com/productcar...7&idproduct=99

both for less than chuey, with arguably less style.

Nothing wrong with utility, in fact I am all about it, but when the OP is looking for a cap (Chuey) that has style I assume the do not want a black wool hat with ear flaps, but I am probably wrong

thanks guys. i ried e-mailing and messaging him on both myspace and flickr. i have a walz cap, but the bills are too long for my liking. i liked the way my chuey fit and looked. i liked a lot fo those caps others suggested. thanks for those.

and yeah, if i am going to wear a hat, i am willing to pay a few extra dollars to have one i really like. im not sure what that makes me?
