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?

MKS Gr-9 and chrome steel clips

I've been looking at multiple sites for some cheap MKS pedals and toe clips, but most of them are out of sale. Anyone know any other shop with them for a cheap price? lowest i've seen for the pedals are 21$. Also need help finding some leather straps. Thanks.

Seems most US are out of stock. Here's the only one I could find. Although most UK stores seem to have them in stock.

I'm looking for a pair too, but am just going to wait until bens gets them back in.
I'm looking for some too

17$ with shipping for MKS steel chrome toe clips a good price?
how bout the leather toe straps? I've seen like 20$ with shipping for christophe leather straps, good price?

Do you guys think 65$ for pedal,straps,clips is too much?

$9.99 at bens for clips and probably $6-$7 for shipping so it seems decent. Google what you need and just compare prices.

Nah, GR-9s are already over.

Now it's all about Wellgo mini bmx platforms (MG-28) with MKS clips and double straps. Remember who told you first.

That accounts for about 99% of the fixed gear phenomenon.

I bought by GR-9s from ben's a year or so ago, and they had this great deal with pedals, clips and leather straps. Not sure what happened to that package deal, but it took a few bucks off each. Plus, they all shipped together. If you asked them, they may still have the package deal somewhere.

i got powergrips and my gr9's for under 50 bucks. powergrips are great because you don have to adjust them for different shoes. and they dont tear in winter like leather straps
