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)

What pedals do you have? When I was testing them, I was able to make them work with my MKS Sylvans.

They are a pair of Sakae, but the holes that i could put them through are not in a very convenient spot, they are more on the rounded part of the pedal

Odyssey Twisted and Animal Hamilton Pc are probably the most common pedals among BMXers.

Dude, thanks for picking up a set of those straps. You won't be disappointed once you get pedals that are compatible!

They were in the test phase for a while but hit the store last week. People seem to really dig them so far!

Making your own straps is pretty easy as well. I made mine out of an old tie-down strap I had lying around. Just punch a couple holes in each side, add bolts, nuts and washers, and you are all set. You can customize the setup to nearly any pedal configuration. The only problem is the lack of adjustment, but since I only own one pair of shoes, this is not a problem for me.

This is my favorite setup.
Very heavy at 700grams but my feet are so comfortable.
Ive tried Mks Sylvans, Shimano spd 520, and 5700 spd-sl pedals.
I ended going back to my first setup.
I don't think forte makes this model anymore but just search bmx pedals on ebay and you will find many like this. Sealed bearing aluminum. Bout $50.


I picked up a pair of those Animal's for $15 on ebay. Loose bearing so not as durable but very comfortable. These are about 400grams. I plan on making my own straps for these.




I tried to do it right but I had to tarck it out. I find it allot more fun when I don't have to get ready to ride.
