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)

Surly Tuggnut rant

So I was changing a flat a while back and my Surly Tuggnut fell apart! WTF! I try to keep about 1/2" of vertical slack on the chain which I think is healthy.

Anyways, I lost that tiny little e-clip retaining ring and now I have to find a new one. Jenson USA has a replacement for 3.25 plus shipping. It's a 15 cent part!!! I've looked at every hardware store in the area for a replacement but nobody has one small enough. Any suggestions, or do I just bite the bullet?
