    Flip flop hubs?

    What is a good hub to pick up for a flip flop setup? Ive not seen to many people that really have that setup but I don't think I'm quite ready for full on fixed gear yet. Anyways, what do you guys think? Thanks again!

    Also, when you do order, pick up a couple extra locknuts so you'll have them on hand. You're bound to break one sooner or later....
