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)

Fixed/Free Brown Weinmann Set non machined?

Anybody know where I can get a set of Fixed/Free Brown Weinmann's 700c non machined? I've found machined ones, fixed ones, but not a fixed/free one.

Thanks in advanced for any input.

Bell's Bike Shop will build some for you if they don't have any in stock. You know you could still run a freewheel on one side of a fixed/fixed set right?

Whoa, I never knew this! But isn't there not enough threading on a fixed side for a free wheel? Thanks Scrod.

The freewheel will extend past the threads a little bit but there are enough to securely hold it on. Because a freewheel tightens as you pedal and there is no backward force on it - like a cog when you slow down/backpedal/skid - it's perfectly fine to run a freewheel on a fixed hub.
