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)

Lockring (RH) for older Campy freewheel hub

OK, so I know about the red Loctite, and lots of it, but first I have to find a 35x24 italian pitch RH lockring to use these beautiful Campy 6-speed road freewwheel hubs for fixed gear. I guess the ISO pitch would also work, but once it's on, it's on. (That may also be true after copious red Loctite and serious leverage with the Italian pitch) So can anyone direct this fixie virgin (gently, gently) in the direction of a lockring that will work with these hubs? Thanks.

If it's a road hub, you can't use a lockring on it. You're supposed to loctite the cog itself, if you choose to go suicide method.

Italian thread hubs are virtually identical to English thread BBs.

the hub's not going to be beautiful for too long after gluing a cog on it
