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)

Are there any INTERNAL fixed gear hubs

Hey everyone,

I'm looking to get an internal geared hub, thing is I need it to be fixed. Does anyone know of any out there besides the Sturmey Archer S3X?

No. I love my Sturmey Archer S3X on my Schwinn Madison!

FG riding is fun again! If you haven't tried it yet, you don't know what you're missing!

God, riding my fixed gear has gotten so tedious lately. If only I could find a way to make it even more like every other bike I own...

I'm pretty sure there are at least two BFers that have ASC hubs. I know I've seen "in the wild" pictures.

Hmm...how often does one need control of this on the fly? I would think a simple flip flop hub would be enough.

Handy with tools?

Of course, there's always more than one way to skin a cat.

Wrong forum. This is the singlespeed forum.

This is not Nam, there are rules.

Sped, its singlespeed plus 2+.

And you're riding one speed anyway, no matter what gear you're in. DUH

Technically it's "single speed & fixed gear". The above relates to fixed gear. It's like a loophole...

http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...kilott_wt5.htm Would imagine the hub is available someplace, but I could't find one anywhere online.

That loophole would apply the forum was "single speed OR fixed gear."

If you were to interpret the and the way you suggest it would mean we couldn't talk about non-fixed single-speed bikes.

To be plain the title means:
(forum for discussion about) single speed bikes and fixed gear bikes.

They didn't have a fixed gear hub in 2005 and we're sad the late Sheldon Brown isn't around to see this become a reality.
