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)

So about Toshi's new shipment...

Anyone have a concrete idea on when that is? Or has it happened?

I'm trying to get a hold of some black doubles anyone i contact says they are out that they're waiting on toshi?
I thought i heard something along the lines of toshi only producing at certain times- or in bulk, but i could be making that up...

Figured the bfssfg would know but maybe i'm wrong to begin with...

I know some people I buy from I Japan have plenty in stock but for some reason the US supply is all on backorder. Ebay has some too.

No Brakes is a pretty well known fixed gear bike shop out of atlanta, that's who they are.

No brakes is a reputable shop, but that's gotta be the dumbest name ever.

I'd name my bike shop "velvet elvis" or "stay gold".

"no brakes" for a bike shop is like naming a car shop "fake carbon fiber shift knob I got from pep boys".

I saw those, was looking for new straps and just can't bring myself to pay 150 from aus when i know if i wait they'll be around 80. I sent a message to my friend in tokyo and he said he thought they were low over there too... maybe he didn't look very hard hah.

Try again. You can do it. Don't be scared. You can make a good joke. I know you can.

I would suggest looking past the Hipster appeal of Toshi's and consider the MKS doubles, most people only read about Toshi's which are in fact a great strap but IMO the MKS have a slightly better buckle (due to a better design on the hinge pin) and the leather and lamination is just as good and top notch! I have ridden mine into the ground in rain, snow, sun, dirt, you name it, and they are just as good as the day I bought them, no de-lam and no stretch. And I didn't use any buttons so they were just as likely to d-lam on the tips. Also I actual use the straps as intended loosening and tightening everytime I use them so they are truely tested. Just my 2c. Look past the allure of Toshi's and consider the MKS's.

Alright so this thread can probably die- got a notification from bens today that they got their shipment(although they already sold out apparently)... i may end up considering the mks'

Oh i wanted the toshi's because i've used them first hand- not hipster appeal, as strong as that can be i suppose.

the kashimax doubles are also pretty nice, although i don't think they're worth the extra cost they retail for at most places.
