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)

Never seen pedals like that, would those work well on a fixie/ss?

I'd be worried about pedal strike on fg, plus you will have to MacGuyver some foot retention.

Why not go with "normal" pedals?

those would work with holdfasts, but seem a bit more than necessary, you know?

I'd do it with Holdfast straps. I know some people with similar set ups and it feels pretty good.

But then thats $100 on pedals and straps

Seems rather expensive for something that is questionable.

Get some cheap plastic pedals and some holdfasts. Light, feel good, work great. I'm partial to my $8 Haro Smallblocks but the Odysesy twisted PCs seem to be the standard.
