This is, I suppose, a philosophical question:
I'm converting an old frame to a fixed gear. I'd like to keep the simplicity of a pure fixed gear hub, but remain true to the cheapness of a conversion. It seems that all of the cheap wheels are fixed/free flipflops. Is there a cheap (under $100) option for a simple fixed wheel?
I suppose I could just remove the cartridge and put in spacers and a lockring, but that doesn't fit with the simplicity deal, to me.
