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)

Leather grips for drops have been around for a long time. I know a man that even makes his own leather hoods and they feel great

Google find


I'm curious how that feels

Meh, seems like it would be slippery with sweaty hands. And wouldn't it start falling apart after a while and leave crap all over your hands?

Not if it's real leather. You would have to baby it, though.
