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)

thinking about going to hollow tandem axle w/nuts

i'm just about fed up with my rear wheel pulling out of my old trek's rear horizontal dropouts at the most embarrassing times. (ie. blasting away from a light or up a steep incline.) up to this point i haven't had too much trouble, but lately i've busted a couple of bolt on QR's when attempting to tighten them so as to actually be effective in keeping my rear wheel on. so i'm thinking about getting a hollow threaded rear axle
