    Rear Shimano with velosolo cog

    Have a question on this conversion.

    I have been on it for a few months now and there have been some issues like the cup and cone came a bit loose on the cassette side. My question is can you simply remove the bearings in the cup and cone and keep using it as a fixed hub? I do not plan on ever using this hub for freehweeling use only fixed with a velosolo cog.

    I just figure if I can remove the parts I do not need in the hub nor will need to worry about replacing.

    You need bearings.

    He has his cog bolted onto the disk brake part of a multi-gear hub. It took me a while to figure that out. So janky.

    Yeah, I figured he meant he wants to remove the freehub body. Still, the freehub body houses the bearings so you can't do without it.

    I converted my freehub to being fixed with cut down drill bit ends in place of the ratchet pawls. I use it with a ss sprocket and a bunch of cassette spacers. Been riding it more some months no bother.
