I've just managed to strip the fixed side of my rear cheap-ass poorly made Quando flip-flop hub.
I know that I could do very well with a glued cog, but since I'm a perfectionist, I like to keep my bikes in perfect order.
The bike is my precious old french Gitane: nice frame, fits me like a glove, etc. Plus it was my first built from an old and ignored, parts missing, on-the-way-to-landfill bike. I'm using this bike as my main exercise bike: several times per week, 20+ miles per trip, mostly flat, 73 gear inches.
Now, the options are:
- Rebuild the rear wheel with a better hub
- Go geared using an internal gears hub (a standard one, not a fixed one)
What do you recommend?
