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)

sometimes you can find their kicks for supercheap on killerdana.com and swell.com, but they're usually for people who bind their feet... or clowns.

I bought these, they match my saddle:

Not too comfy for major skids, however.

vegan shoes? as if a shoe would want to be a vegan... vegetarian maybe, but never a vegan with patchoulli smelling socks.

if you can, find some Vans Rowley XL2's or XL3's - they're wide, the soles are gummy but stiff, and they're vegan as hell. if you DO end up finding some XL2's, I bet they'll be cheaper than a muh-fuh.

oh, and if you can find some Rowley Shams, they suck but they fit your criteria. They NEVER break in, but they're mids, and they can be retardedly ugly, and if you wear tight pants and have normal size feet, they'll look like moonboots...but at least you'll be rocking the STIFFEST frickin shoe Vans ever made. Oh, and the material doesn't breathe either - have I sold you on them yet?

macbeth are the best. i've had one pair for a over a year now so i don't think they fall apart fast and they fit in a toe clip perfectly.
