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)

Hold Fast Straps Pedal Recommend

Looking to get a pair of hold fast straps. Would like the pedals to be light as possible (have ridden regular platforms on track bikes and found too clunky/heavy) was thinking about the Tioga Spyders.

Not sure if the parts where the straps thread through the pedals are the right size, they look too large. will the straps slide around in the pedal?

any good recommends as far as a light platform go? TIA

+1 those are the exact same pedals I have in my volume cutter; in addition, I use my hold fasts with them aswell.

My experiences with Holdfasts+plastic pedals is:

I use Specialized P Pedals, work great...

Also have used Stolen Thermalites, worked great but I jsut didn't like the color of mine...


Odyssey PC's don't work too well because the cutout in the side isn't big enough.
