    Just showing My custom fixie

    This is my custom fixie built on a 50$$ budget
    i dont know what year the bike is but the paint and stickers are in great shape. Wheels are a flip flop style with a 6 speed cassette with a 17 tooth cog. Brake is stock with diatec brake pads and a old school odessey brake lever. light is super clean and works perfectly. i will post more pictures of the bike soon...

    Uhhhh what?

    Put that brake on the front. Wait, I take that back. Put two brakes on it.

    I think he means he is using the 17 tooth cog on the 6 speed cassette.

    I might as well do that. Cause its cool appartently.

    If what you say is true, ditch the 5 or 6 speed freewheel (different from a cassette) and thread on a single speed freewheel. And get a front brake...

    i was thinking about taking the back brake off and putting it on the front. the freewheel is getting taken off with out replacing it with a single speed freewheel

    How did you "fix" it? Be safe man get a real track wheel. The mention of a "fixed" cassette just makes my knees hurt.
    You know you can take off the cassette and rotafix/locktite it. "Danger"

    no, I got that, apparently the joke is on you. Or the joke just plain sucked, I'm leaning to the latter.

    It looks like an old flip/flop hub with fixed on one side and threaded on other side for a 5-speed freewheel. I've got an old Normandy hub like that. The flanges are closer than on a modern fixed/free flip/flop, so there's room for a 5-speed freewheel.

    Wow. So do "they" still make these? It's a wild concept, but i suppose super functional...maybe?
    Go bike yourself.
