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)

135mm Hubs

Who besides Surly makes a fixed/free or fixed/fixed 135mm hub? Are there many(any?) prebuilt wheelsets out there? Bonus points for finding a 29er wheelset with fixed/fixed.

Level Components - their hubs are like transformers. Tremendous quality. $240 - $260 for the hubset, depending where you get them. Level themselves sell it but their price is way over that. Before you call them expensive, which they are, look them up.

I have this same situation with the 135 rear spacing.

I think 29ers would have to be built up. Companies that sell 29er complete bikes have them made by whatever companies they use.

I was considering Surly but the Level hubs are convertable on the spot with a kit that they sell for like $20.

I will be using the wheelset between two frames I have, one 120mm and one 135mm, until I can afford to get an extra wheelset for my 120mm.

The Surly might be what you need. They are quite good.

Paul are good too but just the rear is almost as expensive as the Level hubset and I don't think it comes in fixed/fixed.

Another good thing about Level hubs is that the chainline is adjustable by flipping the cog. 44mm to 52mm I believe.


Good luck.
