Fixie/Commuter Chain Cover

Fixie/Commuter Chain Cover

I had a modified fixie into an internal hub 3 speed for commuting to work. I saw the similar concept of a belt drive that saves the dress pants from chain oil, and went to hardware store and $5 later bought a pack of coaxial cable covers rigid hard plastic shell that's flexible fits perfectly around the chain, cut to length to cover the chain on the drivetrain, and then sewed the cut ends using a special needle and thread (similar to the sewing of a tire casing). Now I can extra oil my chain inside the cover for long slushy commutes and in the rain without worrying about my pants getting stained (trousers for those of you in England)
