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)

Chain Tugs w/ Derailleur Hanger

anyone used anything like these before?


http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...11&category=55

kinda cool considering that you can have the option to run a derailleur on a hori-dropout frame considering that my apt is big enuf to house one bike only. but the big question is that...does it really work?

anyone?

cheers

I don't know if it does but another tugg that works perfectly with horiz drops is the Surly Tuggnut

Here's how I ran it

The thing I like about the tuggnut is it requires no tools even though it's a bit heavy

I am seriously tempted to but the only problem is dropout spacing and have a cassette fit. You'd probably need like a 4 or 5 speed cassette right?

he wants to run a derailer hanger on track ends so that way he can make the bike a multi-gear without having to buy another bike.
