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)

Formula or Dimension.
These hubs are sold under a variety of brand names (IRO, Ben's, Harris Cyclery, etc.). They are no frills, reliable, durable, good looking hubs. Don't buy into the hype that more expensive hubs are more durable or faster, because the differences are negligible.

Hint: you can thread a freewheel onto a fg hub. Getting a fixed fixed hub gives you the most could be double fixed, double free, or fixed-free.
