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)

Neon colored toe clips and straps

I see that NYCBikes sells the Cat Eye clips, and on eBay I found a couple clips and straps from various brands in neon. I asked my LBS if they could get some Cat Eye clips and they couldn't find them in the catalog. Are these things all NOS or can they still be ordered? Thanks.

I'd scour the bargain bins. your LBS might have a special stash of 80-90s neon hell-gear hidden away....
seriously, its like thrift store shopping. get at it!

they are distributed by J&B Importers, not QBP, so if you LBS can order from J&B i would assume that yes then could. but you would be better off asking them...

I got some green cateyes at cambridge bicycle.They have a bunch in stock and the package didn't look old.I've seen 'em in japanese magazines too,so i think they're still being made.The top on those is quiet a bit shorter than a mks clip though.I took mine off after slipping at skids a couple times.

the neon nylon clips shatter very easily, also they're not very deep so if you have bigger feet i say avoid them

The ones i used were large and the depth is the same as the mks in large.The difference is that the top is shorter,putting the strap more forward.I wear size 11 and prefer mks LL but have mks L on one of my bikes.
Edit:I think the dayglow clips are one size only
