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)

Double Strap question

Now I might be undereducated but i have come to the conclusion that pretty much every toe clip (except the soma quad gate) are made for one strap.So do you guys just have one strap that doesn't have a holder or am I missing something?

there are definitely other companies than soma who make clips designed for double straps, shouldn't take much searching to come up with some. people also come up with some nifty DIY solutions.

Thanks. I had forgotten it was still online anywhere (my site got wiped, the instructions with it). If anyone wants the printable pattern for the parts, please PM me with your email address and I'll send a PDF your way.

I just cut up a leather punching bag I found at the Salvation Army to make little leather pieces to hold the straps in the right places.

The work exactly like the Cadence Doublizer, but they cost me $5 for enough leather to make them for four or five bikes instead of $20 for one pair.
