so i bought this 3spd beater (real tuff steel) raleigh roadie, from this guy , so i could do meesenger work on a solid bike. after 2 days the rear cog failed and would spin without the hub.
so i would pedal and the force would spin the cog, not the wheel. weird as ****.right?
i bring it back to him, he switches it up for a another 3spd, and we decide to get a new hub/rim and make it fixed.
so he did. my first fixie. road the **** out of it for one day (yesterday) , and just when i was getting the hang of a coast less rearbrakeless existens, as i put the first hard force against a downhill momentum, and it faied. the rear cog was unfixed from the hub. only a little at first. i was able to ride home. but it would pregressively slip worse and worse. the bike is unridable now.
i dont feel as this is a regular thing with conversions converted proper. any ideas what was installed less than adequately? or what part i might be missing?
