Default Re: Can a flip-flop hub save my spokes?

I know a guy that tried one. Was the main reason he selected the bike. As it worked out, it didn't work out. The engine tries to unscrew the sprocket as it is under power but also tightens it when you start the engine. It worked for the first few rides then stripped out the threads on the hub. He did use the lock ring on the hub too, looked like a case of just too much load that gets shifted back and fourth.
