    Flip Flop Help

    Hey all

    I don't really know anything about single speeds/fixeds (or bikes in general honestly) but I've borrowed a mate's kona paddy wagon while he's away and I'm loving it.

    The bike has a flip flop fixie to freewheel hub, I'm riding it free, and I want to have a go riding it fixed, cause I never have before. How do I change it? Help me ride fixed for the first time before I lose my chance forever!

    Thanks a lot guys

    Troll?

    No?

    Maybe?

    Nah?

    Loosen rear axle nuts, take chain off of rear freewheel cog, remove wheel from dropouts/ends, flip wheel around, reinsert into dropouts/ends, reattach chain, tighten nuts while keeping chain tension with 1/2" of deflection.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
