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)

Check out the flask mount



The rest can be seen here: http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2005/jan/elia.htm

Just thought it was funny. Maybe it didn't deserve it's own thread.

I think that any bike with a bike mounted flask and cage deserves its own thread.

I am still looking for a strap that I can wear 'bandolero style' that holds twelve beer cans with velcro fasteners.

Make yer own! (if your serious). Get some 2" webbing from a camping/outdoor store, buy some velcro strips while your at it, and sew these strips onto the webbing, and presto! an instant badass beer can bandalero (sp?). You can even get a fancy and sew a release buckle to the strap t oremove the strap quickly.
Is will probably cost you under $10, beer not included.

You're gonna need something on the bottom, to keep the beer cans from slipping out. Get some of those cup holders that are supposed to hang from your window that they sell at truck stops, that ought to do the trick. Or make some kindof plastic L bracket. I think i might try this as well.

yeah - my flask fits nicely in my back pocket. And back pockets are free on most shorts/dickies/jeans...
$30, hell - I'll tape your flask to your bike for free and let you keep the $30. Oh, don't forget the free face-punch. You've all earned it!

Heh...only now do I notice the price. I think I'll take out some 100mph tape, some lineman's pliers, and see if I can't bend a $2 cage into service. Pity...sweet idea.

Mine's in my stash pocket right now. Perhaps I should break it out to console myself that I'm stuck at work until midnight at least?

You put in your back pocket what you like... I figure you need a little ass padding anyway.

I like the idea and I'd get one now.















If they weren't 30 dollars, and if I didn't lack a flask.

Maybe I could just duct tape those to the bars. Six forward and six back.
