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)

Singelspeed chaincase?

It's like finding a needle in a haystack. I want to be the phreddiest phred out there with a totally encased drivetrain. Can I do it?

I think someone has one in the commuting forum. I'd like to have a Nexus 8 internally geared commuter with one of those chaincase thingys.

^I think the op is looking for something fully enclosed. Not just a chain guard.

Where do I get a Hebie? Do they have a version compatible with a 42x17? Or, even a 42x16? It seems like the only option to keep the ratio I want is buy a new ring and cog, but then I'm still stuck with 44x19 and can't get any taller!
