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)

WTB: Hundreds of cheap leather toe-straps or just buckles

I'm looking for cheap leather toe-straps or just buckles to help me configure my line of OYB classic-style bike luggage items. I do want high-quality leather, but I figure if the straps aren't collectible per se or a name-brand and if I can buy in bulk then they might be affordable. If anyone has any leads/info please email me at jeff@outyourbackdoor.com. Thanks! JP

ahhh...but you see, toe straps are infinitely adjustable, they don't have the discrete holes of those straps.

I actually use one as the buckle on my homebrew handlebar bag.

Sorry Jeff, no idea where to get them in bulk though
