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)

Made my own Ulock Holster.

If anyone has seen the holsters by Fabric Horse, this is based off their design. hand sewn by me, took me 4 hours. I cannibalized the waist seat belt strap of the middle rear seat of my truck which never gets used. I also had some cool looking quicksilver patch that I had laying around to get it some flash.

Looks good. Does it just use belt loops on the back?

yep, two long peices to go over the lock and four smaller to join them and serve as the loop.

That's hardcore. Won't you get in trouble when you have your next inspection though?

Well it's actually designed to hold the correct size, so there's no risk of it falling out. There's a big benefit over shoving it in your back pocket: you don't have to ride with your ass on top of metal.

Nasty things could happen if you crash with a huge chunk of metal strapped to your ribs.
