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)

Anyone making top tube protectors one the forum?

Hey, I've had great luck purchasing stuff from you guys in the past, and was wondering if anyone wanted to make a top tube protector for me. I'd pay you of course. Just PM me.

Otherwise, anyone know of an online dealer that would have them in stock. I'm just looking for any color really, as long as it will fit a 59cm Bianchi Pista Concept. (Reload is on their break right now).

Thanks.

The answer to all your questions is eBay. I got a sweet old
black pad with a yellow lightening bolt on it for $2. It's way
cooler than the ones I've seen custom made, and it does the
job just fine.

There were a couple of them for sale at Back Alley Bike's art show the other night. They might still have them, you could send them an email and ask. Supporting local (well local-ish for you) is good, especially when it's a bike co-op. www.backalleybikes.org
