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)

I first tried them on a friend's bike who had been using oury's since he moto-crossed in the 70's... loved it. Cushy, grippy, and good for my biggish hands. I use the lock-ons on my MTB, and will be using them on my new bar config on the fix.

But what is it?

I just got mine a few months back and love them, too.

It brings me back to the time as a small, small child when I obsessed over erasers because of their rubbery feel. I used to like to rub them and rub them. This was long before I learned the joys of ************, so don't even think of taking your dirty mind down that trail!

I like that whenever my friends spraypaint my bike a new fun color while I'm sleeping, I can get new ourys to match.
