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)

New Fixed hub on the market for you to ponder...

Wait for it...












wait for it...















Aaaalllmooost there....


















Boomshakalaka!







Word from pinkbike:

"The HAUNEBU IV has super wide flanges (75mm) that will allow for you to build extra stiff wheels. We designed the hub so that you can fit the smallest freewheels available (down to 14T!) or put a Shimano cassette cog (down to 12t!) and use it as a fixie. FOUR double sealed bearings (two each side) located as close as possible to the frame dropouts minimize axle bending moment under the weight of the rider.


The CNC body with an International std. 6 bolt disc mount and four high quality sealed bearings will ensure smooth running for a long time. The screw on external axle is made on the highest grade 12.9 oxide coated steel, known as high tensile. The first number represents the ultimate tensile strength of the bolt, 12 x 100 = 1200 Mpa respectively. The second number represents the point at which the bolt will permanently stretch. (Officially, the 0.2% proof load stress). A 12,9 bolt permanently stretches at 90 %. Your axle has never been that strong...
The hub includes a cassette&lockring for fixed gear cogs (if you leave the cassete HG/UG body and lockring off, you can install singlespeed freewheels, for example DICTA BRAND).

Technical specs:
Color: RED Anodized
Hub Drilling: 32 and 36 holes
Rear Axle Type: Hex Bolts M10×1.25mm 12.9 class
Freewheel thread Type: Small M30xP1mm known as flip-flop
Cassette Body Type: Shimano HG/UG
Lock ring Tool: same as 8-notch Shimano XTR M950 and Truvativ ISIS Drive bottom bracket cups Tool
Hub/Brake Compatibility: 6-Bolt Disc
Rear Wheel Type: Mountain Rear Hub Spacing, OLD = 135mm (Outer Locknut Dimension)
Weight: 340g include bolts, washers, cassete, lock-ring

This absolutely gorgeous hub is the first 2in1 hub made to work with a freewheel and Shimano HG/UG cogs as a fixie.

Exclusively packaged in a wooden laser engraved box."



Don't shoot the messenger.

@ dewthedew: It seems to be intended for mountain use, considering the dropout spacing and the emphasis on durability.

What's up with that crazy locknut in the last picture? Haven't seen that sort of thing before, though I don't really have much experience with anything out of the ordinary. Looks beefy as hell... not sure if that's in a good way or a bad way though.

I'd be curious to see it on a build. And the price. I'll reserve final judgment until then.

Uh, well, just maybe if you aren't running the hub fixed...

In the last pic, tough to tell. Reverse thread lockring or no? Threaded body that then accepts fixed cogs or whatever the hell they have as a freehub body. Interesting idea, and I'd love to see how it works. I'll stick with two different wheels, each setup with it's own thing though, rather than swapping parts around.

lookslike the nonfreewheeling cassette frankenfixer thing screws on and the lockring just makes you think its safe? im lost too now that i think about it...

that lockring and tool look eerily like my godforsakenproprietary truvativ ones. "godforsakenproprietary" because i had to order the dang tool to get it off. however, i'm kinda in love with the design of it...fixed and free on the same side, plus disc? yum.

---edit: read specs again, derf.

I wonder if you can use that splined piece for fixed, like the Miche cogs?

What kind of threads are those called? I didn't know there were smaller freewheel threads, just those BMX style freehubs for coasting on a small gear.

Looks like it will run fixed as well. I took a look at their website and I want to try this hub out so bad, perfect for mountain biking.

How are you supposed to get a freewheel removal tool into the freewheel notches with that long threaded section in the way?

On the other hand I'd buy the lockring if it was steel.

yeah, it seems like the design is a little under-thought for fixed use. granted that the hub is meant to be used with disc brakes, perhaps mitigating the need to worry about the forces of back pedaling, it seems funny that this generally over-engineered beast doesn't seem to have any more security than a "suicide" hub. if they had done a stepped set of reverse threads, then this would be the jam for mountain use.

Agreed, WTF is going on here? Disc brake suicide hub? MTB hub with metric freewheel threads only*?

*for those who don't know, in BMX they sometimes use a smaller than normal freewheel thread on one side of what are usually called flip flop hubs, this "metric" 30mm thread allows the smaller freewheels and appears to be what these rigs have.

As the flip flop name implies the BMX hubs usually have the small thread on one side and the standard thread on the other. Important because you can't find small thread freewheels with more than 15t.

except that this hub has a disc rotor mount on the other side, so you're seemingly stuck with metric.

Also, why are the flanges different heights? Seems like you'd need two different spoke lengths, which is just lame for a ss wheel.
