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)

Adding on a fixed gear and single speed on a freehub Alex Rim ACE-19

Hi all, i am trying to run a single speed gear on one side and a freehub wheel on the other on an ACE-19 Alex Rim. I do not know which parts exactly i need to buy.

I do not know what the threading size is.

Is it standard english, can i install this?

How about spacers, do i need to buy a kit that comes with spacers?

also am attaching a fixed gear. For that do i just need to install a cog and lock ring?



Hope i can get my questions answered so i can order parts (:

You can not use a BMX freewheel with on a cassette hub, you'd need something like this to make it work.

If you want to go fixed gear, you'll need to have a proper hub that is made to fit a track cog and a lockring.
