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)

Any experience with GT flip/flop rear hub

I don't have any model #. Icycles has for $30, claimed MSRP of $80. Wonder if they're any good compared with Formula, etc.

???

just FYI that's a BMX flip/flop *not* a fix/free track flip/flop

it lets you use a regular freewheel on one side, and a <16T freewheel on the other.

That answers what I need to know. I'm looking for the next too good deal to go on my first fixie BFSSFG IRO, and a wheelset is one of the needs.
