Fixed gear conversion to single speed?
Quick question, say you have a fixed gear and after a while you want to change it to a single speed so you can coast with it. For me it seems coasting is more simpler because of bikes I have ridden before. All you really have to do to change a fixed gear to a singles speed is to get a flip flop hub? Since it is the same bike, will it be the same speed? I see people with fixed gear style bikes (all hipstered out) coasting with it and it seems like a simpler process. (kilo tt pro)
So all I'm really asking is if you have a fixed gear and you want to convert it into a single speed so you can coast is changing the hub all you have to do?
What other processes are there?
