One of mine snapped today when I was trying to stop suddenly at an intersection. Brakeless setup on the fixie + sudden loss of one foot = me sailing into an intersection through a red light and nearly being hit by a car.
The strap was barely over a month old! Can anyone suggest a good set that won’t scare me like this again?
No but I can recommend a good set-up that won’t scare you like this again. A brake.
“Some kids like to get fucked up,
actin’ black by rollin’ them blunts.
I got a one hitter called Margot Kidder
and I only need to hit that shit once
‘cause I ain’t made of nickels and dimes.
Fat kind make me tickled inside.”—Wiid - MC Chris
