    Fixed/Fixed

    Where the hell do I find fixed/fixed wheelsets? I've been all over this internet and I can only find like two Deep V's on ebay that claim to have a fixed/fixed hub. If this keeps up I'm just going to get the floppy CXP22 and call it a day.

    Oh, and I mean that I don't like Deep V's/Weinmann's and won't ride them.

    ???---- roll your own. They you have exactly what you want, and you might learn something. There are plenty of hubs set up this way.

    Apparently the Jamis Sputnik wheelset came with generic Alex rims laced to a fixed/fixed hub in the back, try looking for one on CL.

    The old dura-ace LF also came with fixed/fixed, whereas the HF (now) comes with fixed on one side only (other side was not threaded). I'm not 100% sure if the old HF came with fixed/fixed but I believe it did not.

    I run fixed cogs on both sides of a fixed/free hub.

    I also rely on a brake for stopping.

    +1 again on bells in philly. mine came with a fixed/fixed iro hub on velocity deep v's as well.
    ......and i don't mean to start a debate, but a freewheel will fit on the fixed side of a hub.

    If you ever want to change the cog in the future, ignore this but...

    Red Loctite and a BB lock ring have been working fine for me for a while on my beater wheel.

    Harriscyclery.net

    or get the rims, spokes, hubs and take them to your LBS for a buildup.

    Spinlitecycling.com or oddsandendos.com should also be able to help you.

    Wrong. I have ridden that exact hub (Dimension fix/fix) with a freewheel on one of my bikes for over two years and have never had a problem. It's true that the freewheel doesn't thread on like it would on a fix/free hub but more than enough threads are engaged.

    Random q.
    Might I ask what threading your locking was? I was going to use one a while back but the minor pitch (ID) was too large to engage the freewheel's thread.
    I didn't forget to not add a sig. Here it is:http://www.milkyfan.com/images/adopt/coffeeandmilky.gif

    Use a bottom bracket lockring. I'm using that on my current bike, but it's for track use only, since you don't need a lockring on an oval track. I have laid out a few skids with it though and it's held up.

    And the hubs on that Vuelta wheelset look like Dimension/Novatec hubs. I've got a set on my bike and they're holding up just fine.

    I'd try building your own. It looks good on your resumé and impresses chicks.

    Yeah, I tried picking up an old bb lockring from my lbs and I was wondering if they gave me an odd size or something: seems so.

    Building wheels? Yeah, Iknow the lore, theory, and all that but I've only messed around with old trash hubs and such. I'm also pretty sure I under tension and scads or other random flaws (like changing the lacing pattern...)
