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)

Don't let the buyer know! They might think it'll work.

A freehub?
As in the kind where the freewheel mechanism is built into the hub?
How in the hell would any kind of attachment allow that to become a fixed gear?

Note:
"The Fixxer allows you to convert any Shimano cassette hub (except Silent Clutch, 2004 Dura Ace or pre-1997 Dura Ace) into a true fixed-gear."

How much would one of those run?
Might it be cheaper to buy a new hub...?

I've never even looked at those bad boys.
All my bikes have wheels with 32 spokes.
