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)

njs pants cuff strap

Kinda cold this morning so instead of rolling my cuffs up and exposing my leg I pulled this out of the parts bin:


to ensure that aspect of my morning commute was njs approved.
If only I could find the other strap, I would actually use them on pedals.

I think the strap is a bit older than '06 - maybe mid 80s?

no I got the point.
I was bored this morning so I posted up a pic of what I thought was a fairly unique pedal strap.
I've used fairly common ones on my pants before.
thank you for your concern in this matter.

Except I mustn't have everything njs, in fact the strap is the only njs thing I have, and I re-purposed it this morning. I never got caught up in the whole njs trend fad, most of my interest has been vintage stuff.

not today's timeline, tooldo - the whole njs thing.
obviously it's been around for a while, but its appeal over here has peaked apparently.
I have found vintage stuff to pretty much stay in constant but limited demand.
What about vintage njs?

Dre, we all know you were there with your Anchor and Veeps but apparently you're in denial about it now.
