    flip/flop question

    I understand the langster has, or adapts easily to a flip flop hub?
    If so, does the wheel have "quick release" clamps? (sorry I don't know the correct term)

    Just wondered if you guys flip/flopped much while riding, just every once in awhile or what?

    THe langster has a flip flop hub, comes stock with a 16t freewheel. No quick release, just a standard 15mm track nuts and washers. When i went fixed with it, i left the freewheel on and on longer rides/something where i might need the freewheel, i just carry that little surly jethro tule, half wrench/half bottle opener. Since most of my riding is in the city, though, i don't really flip/flop at all. You'll end up leaving it fixed as well.
