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)

Freewheel to fixed....

cheap and easy way to do it? I'm running a standard shimano hub converted to single speed, but I'm really tempted to give fixed a go. Any way to do it without buying a new wheel or hub?

is your shimano hub for a cassette or a threaded freewheel? if you have a cassette style hub, surly makes an adapter that allows you to run fixed gear, its called a fixxer: http://www.surlybikes.com/parts.html

Probably the coolest thing I've seen all week. If some of us innovative SSFG doods had a machine shop and the knowledge to our use, we'd be rivaling Surly!
