    It is my understanding that on a flip flop hub there is spacing symmetry on the hub from the left to the right, so there is no need for dishing. I f your wheal still has so, either the wheel was build wrong or there was a special need to compensate for other issues like asymmetrical rear frame spacing.

    Huh?

    Spokes are not dished. What does "straightforward like on a front hub" mean. Your 2 questions make 0 sense. Try again.

    C'mon now - the terminology is a little off, but the meaning is clear.

    The wheel will not need to be dished. A "fixed/single speed hub" is the same as a flip-flop hub. Any hub you get specifically for fixed / SS riding will have threads on both sides and not require dishing when built.

    Isn't dishing only needed if the hub will have a cassette or freewheel? Otherwise, for any other type of hub such as a Rohloff, SS, fixed, flip-flop, dishing isn't an issue.

    Track specific hubs with threading only on one side generally have slight dishing.
