I know nada about the specs on my wheel (trade with someone WHO THOUGHT they were buying a ss...oy?), only that I did a very slow-mo skid stop in an alley, messing around, and started coasting... yea... on a fixed... The cog unthreaded itself from the hub... I thought this was odd, I had assumed it was well... affixed. In order to cart it back home, I had to take the rear wheel off, forgetting how ghetto I had it attached. Apparently the width between dropouts is a bit tighter that the wheel wants, but it's been working fine, and I suppose I have a few questions:
1. Is it ok to be stressing the frame like that, even if it's just mms?
2. Does the wheel rest on the springs, shouldn't they have washers of some sort? (newb)
3. Is it cool for the hub/cog not to have jbweld/a nut/washer thing going on, I read on a track forum that this is ok, but... for skid stopping frequently? (albeit ... my newbie-ness doesn't allow me to go out without my lovely front brake)
