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)

Check around at old / packrat bike shops, ones that are used to kludging things back together for BMX kids and so on. My LBS just told me, "Go fish", and I found some white toe straps from France (Mavic?) in a bin in a dark corner. "Well, those are pretty old-school, so...$4 is a pretty old school price."

They're probably just taking up space in a box somewhere. It'll be hit and miss about labels and whatnot, but probably not too pricey.
