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)

Anyone running a Level hub?

Found this thread, but digging a bit deeper: http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/in...p/t-86278.html

So I'm going with a different rear hub for my next wheel build, and I've always kept Level on the back of my mind. Most of the info I've found online has been in the UK fixed forums or MTB applications.

I understand they use a 45mm chainline, which is pretty wide, but I've discovered chainlines are kind of subjective from hub to hub, having built up fixed wheels using Formulas, Phils, Pauls, and WI.

Does anyone have this hub, and if so, what spindle length are you using for a straight chainline?

I always chuckle when running and rocking crop up in "real" conversation. Thanks BSNYC!

Well, this application is going on a 108mm spindle with sg75s. I don't think it's going to work.
