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)

Translation: If it'll hold up to more than a days riding I can sell the rear wheel to an unsuspecting punter.

Same situation I was in. I just rotafix'd the **** out of it because I figured the hub was already stripped anyway. Am actually still skidding around on it today, waiting on my new wheelset to arrive.
