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)

spoke card issues

anyone have secrets for keeping spoke cards in? i know its a lame ass thing, but ive lost all mine (3) due to wind and just bad luck wile riding. i even put a 2 baseball cards in there so my wheel wont look so naked, and one fell out on a ride and when cleaning my drivetrain the other fell out.

maybe it's a radially laced wheel?

Use a clothes pin on the fork and make sure only the tip of the card touches the spokes - that gets you the best sound.
