    fixed/fixed 135mm hubs other than Phil Wood??

    Are there any mtb hubs that are fixed / fixed besides Phil Woods?

    I want to have a dedicated fixed gear rear wheel for my singlespeed. Since I won't be able to use the rear disc brake when riding fixed gear, it would be nice to have two ratios in one wheel. So, besides the very nice and expensive Phil Wood hub, are there other 135mm hubs in a fixed/fixed configuration??

    Thanks people!


    PS; I searched.

    Surly and Paul both make fixed/disc hubs so you could use your rear disc brake and ride fixed, or you could use a Tomicog on one side and a regular threaded fixed cog on the other to achieve your two ratios. I don't know if the chainline would be the same, but if they are close you could space one or the other enough to match.

    If you have vertical dropouts you cant use Eno's Eccentric hub

    As Boomn said, the fixed/disc set up will work with a bolt on cog like the Tomi Cog or the London Fixie. Phil Wood is now doing a fixed/fixed based on the ISO disc drilling but they are only in track spacing (120mm) - making cogs to go with them as well.

    Another option for a disc/fixed hub from the trials end of the spectrum, too bad it uses proprietary splined cogs a la white industries.

    Nothing wrong with spined cogs. I've used the miche setup a few years and it's great.

    Nothing wrong if it weren't a proprietary design with limited availability for replacements...
