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)

Do you mean MKS straps, or Dimension straps? MKS are great, Dimension are dangerously bad.

I have dimension doubles because they were cheap. Thats what I needed at the time. They have been fine for a month now. I do want Toshis and have no problem forking out $110 after feeling them and understanding how much superior they are (being layered and strong). But calling the dimensions dangerous is funny. Bicycling is dangerous. If you break a strap and then crash into a bus head first because you can't stop... well, then it must be dimensions fault for making an inferrior product to Toshis. LOL

if the cheap fake leather double straps i have are dimensions, they're okay. you won't be happy with them, though. okay they suck.
they do. they suck.

i bought them on a whim for like $30 at the lbs, bad decision, but that's the same Orange 20 in LA that sold me half a headset the other night and 650c tires for my $400 wheels... know it all that all but ruin every experience i have there.

just saying. don't trust everyone who knows bike stuff, but i'm telling ya those straps suck... don't bend easily and rub on your crank really bad.
