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)

Hed 3 9/10spd rear to Track Rear conversion...Surly Fixxer?

Hi,
I have a 2010 9/10 spd Shimano Hed 3 wheel. I would like to convert it to a fixed gear for my track bike. Will the Surly Fixxer work for this?
Thanks!

The Fixxer works with many Shimano brand hubs, but not all. There are some Shimano hubs we know will not work with the Fixxer. They are: all Silent Clutch, Dura Ace made before 1997 and after 2003, XTR M970/975, XTM770/775, Saint, and DXR-MX70. Additionally, Shimano has in recent years begun to use proprietary axles instead of their old standard 10x1mm standard axles. Since Shimano is constantly changing and updating designs, we simply do not always know what hubs will or will not work with the Fixxer. What we can tell you is that if you have a Shimano hub using a 10x1mm standard axle, the Fixxer will probably work. If your hub is not Shimano, or you are not sure what its insides are composed of, then you're better off getting a dedicated fixed gear hub or wheel.
I dont know if others have had it work with HED wheels

Thanks fr the replies! I read the above on their website, but I wasn't sure if the rear was a 10X1mm axle.

10mm diameter with 1mm pitch threading, which is most likely.
