Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Can't tell for sure, but it looks like there are threads on the other side of the hub, making it a flip/flop.

flipflop means the hub is capable of carrying a cog or freewheel on both sides, not that it has a cog or freewheel on both sides.
a freewheel hub with no freewheel is still a freewheel hub.

do you think its an elusive double free flip flop or did he put his freewheel on the fixed side of the hub?

That's a mountain hub, nothing elusive about a double-free mountain hub.

so if that's a mountain hub does it have 135 spacing? I haven't worked with the surlies, how flexible are they with regards to axle spacing?
