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)

No cog, nuts, washers, etc. Basically hub ONLY.

Props for the coaster. Wave of the future.

Actually, a trim kit includes the shifter, cables, and housing. A hub without a trim kit will still come with axle nuts.

Coaster brake hubs are super common hubs and any lbs prolly has one laying around in back. I bought my 36 hole hub with any size sprocket i wanted for 15 bucks and it had never been laced.

Shifter for a coaster hub? I'd assumed it'd be singlespeed.

WOW I totally misread the OP while reading another thread about 3-speed coaster brakes.. Also, trim kits generally refer to a small bag of accessories.. which in this case refers to the cog I believe.
