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)

because they use MKS...?

but, they, toshi's, are njs certified... even if they arent stamped... maybe they didnt want to make the machine or put in the time to stamp them...

all products form an njs certified brand are not necessarily certified, right? are these definitely certified? it may be as simple as the singles being the more traditional straps for the track.

yea they use singles, but doubles from MKS and kashimax have the NJS stamp
even the toshi single has the stamp, its just the toshi double doesn't have the NJS stamp.

Wondering if it built a different way so it doesn't get approval
