  3. is there a way to buy one of these belts?

  4. The belts are quite pretty – one can buy them at the Saus & Braus (http://www.sausbraus.ch/) store in Zurich.
    As a proud owner of one of their single-speeders myself, I’d like to point out Werkmals collection of fabulous refashioned bikes, too: http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/internet/sd/sub_navi_sd/info_departement/sozial_konsumieren/velowerkstatt/modelle.html.

  7. I went to the website to buy one but for some reason the link isn’t working. Has the site changed?
