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)

Bikes direct bike rear cog coming loose. Issue with hub?

So i recently purchased a Windsor The Hour on bikes direct and I noticed that the hubs on the rear only have threading in one direction. The my concern became a serious issue when I tried to slow down with my feet and the torque began to unthread the cog. Is there any fix for this or is it safer/better to just get a new set of wheels with hubs that have threads in both directions?

did you look at the threading on both sides of the hub?

Do you own a chain whip and a lock ring tool?

Assuming you haven't tightened your cog and lockring with proper tools as per the BikesDirect instructions....

Bring the wheel to a decent shop, be prepared to buy a new hub/wheel tho.
