First of all, I know similar questions must've been asked in the past, so apologies if I'm repeating, I've read / searched a lot on the subject the last few days, including this forum, and still wanted to start my own post... looking for help here and on LondonSSFS board too.
Ok.. So I'm building my own bike, I'm staying away from pure fixed wheel for now, as I can see myself causing either myself / others some sort of injury!
Am I right in thinking I could use a flipflop hub to have the choice of either fixed wheel / singlespeed (ideally this is what I'm after, but if I had to choose one, it'd be singlespeed for now)
I've read a bit about theseon Sheldon's site, here etc... but must admit I'm still not ENTIRELY sure how they work, anyone fancy explaining it as simplY as possible?!
Also some tips on a good frame to start with would be a help too... prob got about £100 - £150 upfront to spend on the frame.
Cheers in advance to anyone who's read this, and again apologies if I've repeated other threads.
