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)

how do you decide what sizing hubs to get. i know there like 120 mm and 130 but how do u measure the length on your bike. i understand the 36 or 32 hole things

Whoa.
Dude, you measure. The space. Between the dropouts. With calipers. Or a metric tape measure.

sheldonbrown.com. read his stuff. Hub width (110, 120, 126, 130...) has nothing to do with bike length.
