Hold Fast.

We are riders like you. We founded Hold Fast because we couldn’t find any toe clips that could stand up to the rigors of fixed gear freestyle riding. After breaking countless clips and straps, we decided to design and make some ourselves. Only after many months of street testing by some of the best and burliest trick riders on the scene, did we feel that we had a product worthy of the name Hold Fast.

We believe these to be the finest foot straps made.

Hand made in Brooklyn, Hold Fast FRS offer superior comfort and adjustability no matter what type of shoe you ride in. Whether you are a die-hard fixed gear rider seeking a long lasting alternative to toe-clips, a hardcore bicycle polo player who wants a more protective toe strap, a trick rider seeking greater confidence, a single-track MTB rider who wants to stay connected on drops and switchbacks, or a commuter seeking maximum adjustability and comfort…these are the straps for you.

I have never needed anything but clip and a double strap ( of the nylon variety ) but the more I hear of these the more I want to try them. One thing is for damn certain, they look heavy as hell and I am convinced that not another strap will be broken once these are installed.

Anyone tried them or anything similar? Please shed some light.

    I’m with you. Perfectly content with double straps and toe clips but the hype on these is getting to me. Can’t bring myself to drop the money on these though. I wish there was a demo…

    A guy named JOL on the London Fixed Gear forums developed and is hand making a similar product. After some exchanges with the Hold Fast folks it appears they both came up with similar ideas at the same sort of time.

    JOL straps are UK made by a designer in London and are available here:

    Hope that’s useful :)

      Hi Dev, Thanks for getting in-touch.

      Yer the JOL straps are great I am sure although I myself am a big fan of the double strap / clip combo. Still, I must give them a try!

      Blogeed the JOLs a while back… see here.
