    Suicide Fixie.

    I run a fixed on the streets, and there is an out door velodrome(sp?), i some times go there there just to do a few laps, but i find 69 gear inches to be way to low. The hub is a fixed/free hub.

    I got a 15t cog to try a harder gear (faster).

    I have a front brake, so would it ok to just screw on the 15t cog and do some laps with out a lock ring on the free side?

    Thanks its a surly cog if that matters.

    I've never used a lockring on the track-- just torque the cog on hard. I know a lot of people who don't use lockrings.

    If you're backpedaling hard enough to unscrew it you've already got much bigger problems.

    On the street I highly recommend a lockring though.
