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)

props to kryptonite

original email:

hi...i have a u lock for the new york chain....i only have one key left so i am reticent to use in case last key is lost....the number on the key is ebh@&*%....i could not find this prefix on the website....please instruct.....thanks, bob

kryptonite reply:

Robert, Kryptonite stopped making locks with tubular keyways and we have very small supply of the keys left. Since you have at least one key or aware of the key number and the lock is not attached to anything, send in your lock and key(s) to us along with a note to the address below and we can replace it for you with its current equivalent at no extra cost.

nice CS.


...although I'm sure you know by now that "reticent" means "hesitant to speak," not just "hesitant."

You have to glue your lock shut.
