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)

Nashbar, fixed wheels, hubs?

Does anyone know where on the website Nashbar has fixed gear parts, hubs, wheels, etc? I have been searching the forums and see lot's of comments about their fixed gear offerings. If anyone has a link or part numbers etc, Please let me know. I have had good luck with Nashbar in the past, and they seem to make some decent parts at a good price. Any help would be appreciated.

Look in the drop down menu "freehubs" or hubs or rear hubs

They sold out. Supposedly they're getting them back in at some point.

I have one of the rear hubs, and stripped it after maybe 30 miles. Probably my own fault for using a no-name cog, but... I don't think I'd buy one of the rear hubs again, anyway.

I bought the formula/cxp-22 wheelset in April, and can't keep them in true, and have broken an axle locknut.

I learned my lesson and will spend all the $ on the wheelset instead of repairs next time.

Amen to that. I had that set since May and it sucked so bad. I broke a tracknut, both locknuts and a cone in the few months I had it. Oh yeah, the rear came out of true in early July as well. F*ck that, now I'm on phil low flange 28s fix/fix with deep v's and it's marvelous. Consider yourself warned

Wow, thanks for this info! I was really close to picking up some Formulas but will now instead go with the Suzue Pro Max. Whew!

I'm wondering WTF you were doing to the thing that you managed to break both locknuts.

They still have some other fixed stuff. They stock the entire range of SOMA cogs, but you have to look under the manufacturers list to find them.
