surly fixxer + generic hub
I'm converting my marin into a low-gear fixed. dumping derailleurs, rear hydraulic, cogs. the hub is generic, but it does take a shimano hyper-glide cassete — can anyone tell me if that is enough for the fixxer to work?
As far as I can tell: yes.
The fixxer works on any Shimano (and afaik: Shimano-compatible, since they're the same form-factor, just not made BY Shimano) cassette, aside from the "Silent Clutch" ones and certain Dura Ace ones.
At the very worst, you might have to do some filing & finagling to get it to fit perfectly, like thisguy.
the last time i was at Cycle Smithy i saw one in their case downstairs in the repair shop.

IRO is the only place I know but tony doesn't respond to my emails for some reason.
