When will ever see the 3 speed fixed hub!

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)

When will ever see the 3 speed fixed hub!

Ok, well I think the hub is cool, and I think a graphic designer or someone here needs to figure out a way to make that logo say something about Sheldon. Like it already has the S, maybe a simple sticker for those to show their love.

Some of the most asked questions should be answered with the below pictures. Hub will be 120mm OLD. Two shifters, top mount thumb and bar end. Cog interface is a standard Shimano spline.





None of the shifters' designs are final. Lifted from this site: http://sunrace-sturmeyarcher.blogspo...arch/label/S3X

Well you must be made of money, a schlumpf by itself costs as much as my bike, let alone frame prep.

Can I have some of your money? Please?

wow, shifters on a fixed gear, that hub is a shame.
Any "fixed gear" with more than one speed is a disgrace, that "fixed gear hub" should be banished from society.
Sounds like a cop out for people who want a fixed hub but are too lazy to tough it out in one gear.

i cant wait to have one. all the fun of fixed gear riding, except i can actually ride big climbs and feasably do tours. at the moment it frustraits me when i do a big trip but have to resort to riding my geared road bike.

i think it would take me a while to work out what gearing id want, so i plan to buy a set of diffrent sprockets and try each one out for a week.
