I have a fuji touring bike converted to a ss (has a horizontal dropout so I don't need the deraileur thingy to tension the chain). I run a 32/16 and love high cadence.
I have another road bike converted to ss and it has a higher gear ratio and I wanted to put in a larger rear cog to make the same 2:1 ratio. I was wondering about doing a flip/flop because I enjoy the "training" from the higher gear ratio but for longer rides I like the ease of a lower gear ratio. Can one do a flip/flop - both ss. I know you can do one ss and one fixed (which I have no interest in doing) but can you do both flip/flops as ss?
With my Fuji, I find that when I tighten the quick release in order to keep the hub from slipping forward when hammering my wheel doesn't spin easily. Also, hard to line up the wheel so that the rim doesn't rub against the brake pads or the tire against the chain stay.
I am using 35mm Schwalbe Marathon Supremes. Add in the fenders I can't seem to get the hub with the skewers into the drop out.
I am thinking that this Fuji conversion was a mistake. Perhaps a bike really dedicated to ss is a better idea..........I am pretty frustrated
