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)

Can you get just a rear Phil hub?

I'd like to get a rear in Black, but I've never noticed anyone selling them individually except on ebay used.

I could ask the bike shop, but i figured why bother them with it since I probably wouldn't build the wheel up until spring, no sense in building a new wheel to ride through the winter muck.

Spicer has the cheapest Phils I could find. I got my set from him. As a bonus it comes double fixed as well.

If you're not married to Black for the color, check out this (possibly the best deal in town) for a chrome 32 fixed/free rear!

The guy at American Cyclery was explaining to another customer (some n00b who was building up his first fixie with unobtanium parts) that because the anodizing process sometimes results in different tones, the colored Phils are only sold in sets. Right afterward he told me that they didn't carry 26mm cross levers because they were too cheap to be sold, meaning unreliable. So honestly I'm not sure if that's the truth.

even if it were true, it'd be hard for me to believe for black.
