    Cheap Hold Fast like pedal straps

    I would like to get some pedal straps (no toe clips) for my bike. I don't want to pay a lot of money for them nor do I want them to be "Made in Brooklyn". Are there any cheaper knockoffs? I don't want any lettering nor any logos.

    duct tape, it takes a friend to install and a pro at track stands. just sayin....

    on a serious note, power grip fixies dont have the troublesome metal bracket standard power grips have and cost $20

    Looks like the website is down too. Now it makes me wonder if it is coincidence or something more?

    What pedals are you guys using with your straps (not toe-clips). I am thinking of getting MKS Sylvan Track or MKS GR9, I hope they work with them though.
