Default Re: fixie build new got to try it

The fixie's I've seen with a flip flop hub have a quick release on the rear wheel. One side is a fixed gear the other side is a single speed freewheel. Staton Inc makes a hub with right hand treads on the right and left hand treads on the left. This looks like a flip flop but isn't. It's made to put a sprocket on the left side. Running a true fixed gear would be very dangerous in that the peddles move whenever the bike is moving. So it sounds more like you're running is a single speed freewheel.
