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)

Do fixed rear hubs that are NOT flip-flop exist?

Can someone recommend a good one?

Surly makes a single sided Fixed, so does Formula IIRC

There isnt much of a reason for commuters to not ride on a flip flop hub, so lower end manufacturers dont have much need to make them. Higher end applications have more of a reason to us the slight advantages of a single sided track hub. So high end manufacturers will build them. Since they are a niche product and only made by high end builders they will be generally more expensive than the lower end dual sided hubs made for commuters.

How is that a flipflop, only one side of the hub has threading for a Fixed Cog.

There's nothing on the other side.

Is a fixed/fixed hub considered flip flop?

he wasn't trying to make you look stupid, he tried to make himself look not stupid. which failed because it's pretty obvious he misunderstood the question, even without your questioning.

any hub which can be driven on either side is considered flipflop to anyone who matters. flip does not correspond to fixed or free, it just means you can switch the drive side to the other side and still drive it.

and i don't care about this thread, but i would like to know where to buy those cups that thread on and make it look like there is no threading on the non drive side...

Track Bike hubs are one end threaded twice for cog and lockring.
that is what you are referring to . Pista in Italian bike lingo.

the frames are typically narrower .. 120 wide ,
but many a clever mechanic can swap in a longer axle..

Keirin would use that kind of hub too.
Japan Bets on those bike races, so they are highly regulated.
and that includes the quality of the parts, for equalization of the rider's bikes.

"You're."

I posted that, realized what he posted, then changed it. I didn't realize that when you quoted my post that it would change with my edit. Apologies. I didn't even see your post till an hour later. Relax, jeez.

Calling someone pathetic, without proper spelling or grammar is less effective. Not to mention that you seem to like attacking other members quickly. Mature.

CC700: I realized my mistake once I posted, apologies again. As I said, I didn't realize that when I edit things it would reflect in his quote. I've been staying up on campus for work & school at 16 hours stretches a day for a week, it's not exactly doing wonders for my brain right now. I know what a flip-flop hub was. I know for a fact surly makes one, because one of our riders just sold his with a surly one, and I almost bought a Formula branded Fix hub.

Arguing over such trivial matters makes you look far stupider than any edited post ever could.
