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)

buying pedals

getting new pedals on craigslist, do you need cycling shoes for these?

this is what the guy says
brand new wellgo track bike fixed gear pedals/straps/clips Standard 9/16" threads to fit almost all cranks

URGENT, I NEED TO KNOW WITHIN THE NEXT 3 HOURS

edit- im assuming they aren't because they have toe straps, but i gotta make sure. thanks!

it doesn't look like it. they look like platforms with toe straps. unless they have clips and he's selling them with cleats then you're fine.
