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)

My bad.

Thats Roxbury for "so are you vouching for/standing behind/endorsing their quality?"

Person one: "Hey did you hear that Random Axe album? It's solid."
Person two: "Oh yeah? I might have to pick it up."
Person one: "Definitely get it, I'll cosign that purchase, it's pretty dope!"

Here's me chiming in. Love the Assault Risers. I swapped my bullhorns on the other day, rode for 20 minutes and swapped the risers right back on.

Hahaha. "Co-sign" translated to BF would be "+1". Simple as that.

How are the Laminated Deluxe Leather Double Straps you offer on Retro-Gression? I've been thinking about getting these, but I've heard mixed reviews. However, the "bad" reviews seem to be coming from people that think along the lines of "Toshi or nothing." have you used these, and if so, how did they hold up?

Thanks!

You're on the edge of asking in the wrong thread. However, I've had a set for about a year and they've held up exceptionally well.
