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)

oh. cool . quick question: what are some criteria for good pedals? was wondering because i've read that a lot of people advocate switching out the pedals that come with the kilo tt, but i still ride mine. i was curious what a 'better' pedal has to offer.

I haven't ridden clips/straps for a while now but those pedals actually seem pretty nice to use.

I have the White Industries pedals in black - they're awesome... super quality, really tough, and comfy as hell. It was hard to swallow the price (8x the price of MKS GR-9's, as an example), but it's nice to buy from and support a small company that makes killer parts. And not to start a "Made in USA" OT discussion (there are quality pedals and parts from all over the world), but if that's something you're into, they are that.
