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)

Purple Bar Tape

Does anyone know where I can get purple bar tape? I've checked colorado cyclist, performance, nashbar, competitive cyclist, bike tires direct...the list goes on. I would think someone would sell some awesome purple bar tape.

Anyways, what would look better with celeste than purple? Am I right, or am I right?

Fashion sense aside, look for Bontrager. They list purple on the website.

When I was in Minneapolis, my friend took me to Penn and they had bontrager in all kinds of colors. Otherwise, Call Ben's Cycle.. not on the site, but they carry them in store, I'm sure they'd hook you up.

As said Bonny's purple tape is real purty and comfy. Gets dirty easily though.

Celeste and Purple look great together.
