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)

sad, sad day (stripped hub content)

after almost two weeks i finally received my new cog and lockring from bellsbikeshop. took off the old ones and put on the new ones and what happens when i tighten the lockring? stripped hub... i knew i should have immediately replaced the wheelset of my kilo tt...

the saddest part is i'm leaving for the beach tomorrow and we always take our bikes...

yes, our solution is to ask around the local shops for a freewheel and then put a brake on my bike. i was looking forward to riding a fixed wheel for the trip but a bike is better than no bike.

Well, think about it this way, when you buy your next rear wheel you will already have a freewheel and a fixed cog so that way when you want to ride SS you'll be able to whenever you want. Annnndddd, you'll have a brake so you will be safer when you go back to riding fixed.

The lockring stripped because you are too powerful for mere metal. Suicide hub the other side, only loctite can withstand your adonis like physique

When i thought I stripped the fixed side of my hub I found out the other side was luckily fixed as well. I ordered that quality Dura Ace cog and lockring, put them on the other side, and I'm still riding. Jackpot for me. Moral of the story is buy quality the first time and take the time to install it properly or have a shop do it if you're not confident, then you wont have to e-whine about it

Did you tighten the cog and lockring when you first got your bike?
