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 rear hubs for $20

Nahsbar marked down their rear track hubs to 19.99. Get 'em while they're hot!

Lockrings included too! Not a bad deal if you like cheap lockrings.

Alloy lockrings = poo. Otherwise, really decent hubs.

I decided to find out. That's like £10, and I don't think I could find one here for less than £60. I've ordered, lets see if they'll ship!

They have an option for UK on the order, and I've also recieved a confirmation email. I'm in WaitAndSee mode.

SH*T SH*T POO! I could have tacked on a good lockring, an inner tube and a set of those bar end blinkies and gotten 15% off? I got the 10%, though. My fault for ordering in a hurry. Anyway, soon I'll be building a new set of wheels for the frame-off-getting-painted. Exciting hoo-hah.

10% off is standard for Nashbar. I wish they'd just lower the price and not have me enter a code everytime I order something. Same thing with rebates and such.

Double fixed, or fixed/free?

Description seems a bit vague...

double fixed. haven't laced one up yet, but they come with real track nuts, which is almost worth your money right there.

The description mentions freewheels. How does that work? (pardon the ignorance) Do you put the freewheel on under the lockring? I thought fixed was fixed, free was free.

from my understanding of running a freewheel on fixed/fixed: you can still lace the freewheel onto one side if you wish to use the freewheel, but dont lace a lockring on.

Lacing has nothing to do with it. You mean thread.

to use a freewheel just screw it on like a track cog and leave the lockring off. not the ideal setup (less thread engagement that a true freewheel hub) but it works.

edit: get a room you two
