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)

what do you guys use for the singlespeed cog on your flip flop hub?

Do you use BMX cog or some hyped up cog for flip flop hub.

Only >16t BMX freewheels will work, 15t and under are metric threaded, which will not your flip flop hub.

i am new to the game so i will ask a side question.. you can set you your back wheel with 2 cog's right. so you can flip flop not to a free wheel but a higher or lower gearing. i have been doing some reading and i think thats what i have picked up...

I use this: http://www.amazon.com/Shimano-18-too...4142357&sr=1-4

You can thread a freewheel onto a fixed side, too.
