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)

The Sturmey Fixed is in!

One on ebay going for 400$...Another seller selling the anodized black hub wheelset for 250$...SO what is going on here? Does the hub exist...No formal reviews. Does this hub suck or does it work?

Lets find out before the end of this year...I don't like the cog interface. It appears to be a hacked up freewheel body with some cog locking rings...I have a feeling the hub internals are likely to be failing quickly with avid commuters. I don't seen an oil port on the new model. Does it have sealed bearings?

I hope we can see some new reviews soon.
