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)

Cycling/Racing Caps

Does anyone know of anyone producing cool racing/cycling caps, where I can get one (Besides eBay, of course)? Seems like a suprisingly difficult item to find.

What kind of cap are you looking for? If you do a search in Google for "Cycling Cap" you come up with at least one.

Thanks, yeah, I've spent time searching around with no great results, figured I'd ask here. I'm looking for a traditional racing cap either without logos or just something a little different.

Your bike shop doesn't have any? You are talking about the little tight caps with the tiny brims right? I know Nashbar and Performance carry them. I have a couple, a ritchey, a USPS, and a Syncros, I like them for when its colder out under my helmet.

I've got a Rivendell that I dig for it's style - kind of old school looking.

In a past thread someone came up with his friend's site, http://gerikmade.circlethata.org/

I think he's making solid color and/or custom caps....correct me...?

My LBS has a bunch. I picked up a black Syncros one. My wife says I look like a dork when I wear it. Check with your LBSes as I'm sure they'll have some stashed away somewhere. If not then check the aforementioned Nashbar/Performance and Colorado Cyclist.

Since I started poking around for these things, my girlfriend is now actually thinking of starting up a small business specializing in making these vintage-style caps... customizing them with different materials and/or screenprinting them with custom designs. What do you guys think? Any thoughts or ideas?

I wear them off the bike just because I like them. Does that make me a bike dork, or just a dork?
