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)

Carrying keys?

How do you guys carry your keys on the bike?

I carry mine on a carabiner clipped to my D ring on my bag.

Well, I carry a house key and my kryptonite evo mini key, but was looking for ideas to speed up locking and unlocking.

On both of my bags, I put a caribiner into the strap for a handy place to keep the keys. On my chrome bag, for example, it's right above the buckle, where the stabilizer strap would attach. That way I can get at them pretty easily.

The only thing is that they jingle quite a bit when I'm going at a certain cadence. On one hand, the noise can be annoying, but it can also alert people that can't hear my bike.

Oh, leaving without my bag has also caused me to lock myself out of my building twice.
