Flatland Clutch??

I have heard of a clutch (not sure if this is the word for the gear attached to the rear wheel), but I have heard of a "clutch" specifically designed for flatland. This is what it does All that it does is if you pedal forwards it goes forward and when you pedal backwards the bike goes backwards. Has anyone heard of this or turn a standard clutch into this?? If you have heard of it could you please give me the name because I am having trouble finding it.

It's called a fixed gear hub. Email or call someone at www.flatlandfuel.com and they can probably help you get one.

Thanx now I remember the name of it cuz some guy from sweden or one of those european countries (belgium germany austria) was riding it for the first time in X games and they were talking about how for some riders its an advantage and some it is a disadvantage.

Trevor Meyer was riding a fixed hub a few years ago, but he's back on a freecoaster now. Don't know about any Euro guys doing it though.
