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)

It looks like the way it is now, it would have some slippage if you didnt torque the ***** out of those bolts. It would make more sense to offset the drillings of the holes so that 2 of them sit in the leading edge of the slot in the sprocket, and 2 sit in the trailing edge. Like this crappy paint image:

Thing is, it's missing one bolt anyways. And the bolts look like they are probably rusted completely in place...

Seriously, nothing like buying an extremely questionable hub and then having to hunt and purchase the axle, cones, nuts, and bearings as well. Maybe it's worth buying for the cog?

Wow, LeVeL hubs be darned, eh? Maybe you could use some JB Weld to fill in the slots and create your own "knuckles"..

$12.50?!?! who's bidding on this? i wouldn't trade the dude a stick of gum for this cuz it's so shady it's not even worth using. maybe it'd be nice as a paperweight...

You all need to return to school and brush up on reading for clues:
This device is meant to slice bacon...it even says it in the name. The rest of it is all smoke and mirrors. So, all you aspiring fixedgear butchers - bid frequent, bid high.

there's no way that thing is homemade. look at the cog. nobody was sitting at a workbench routing that ****. probably an antique. if it did say campy on it this thread would be a jiz-fest. lol.
