    fixed gear monocog?

    Not sure if this belong here or the MTB forum, but here goes...

    From what I've read, the Redline Monocog has 110mm rear spacing instead of the standard 135mm for MTBs. Could you use a hub like this Sovos hub to make it into a fixed gear?

    Yeah. JensonUSA also had a Redline Hub/Wheel combo for said MonoCog.

    I thought the Redline hub was just a freewheel, not a fixed... no?

    A thread is a thread is a thread. You wouldn't have the luxury of a proper track lockring.

    Your 'luxury' is someone else's necessity.

    http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2004/e/troyer.htm

    Also, someone is currently selling one on ebay:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=7101301005

    Soooo beautiful. I was thinking of doing that exact same thing, in fact I think I started a thread with this same title a while ago. I decided instead to look at the IRO Highlander. It already comes with a fixed/fixed hub so you don't need to buy anything but a cog and lockring. and it only costs $500 complete.

    The problem with that MonoCog on eBay is that (I emailed him) he put 700c wheels on a frame meant for 26" wheels. The existing cantilever studs are useless (although the ad doesn't say so) unless you get some kind of Paul either V or cantilever brakes meant for wheels that are a different size than your frame. He came right out and said through email to me that those brakes were pretty expensive.
