    Revolution 32 SS wheel question

    Transition folks or someone with experience:

    Since the "Not Bikes" section of the site isn't up yet, the singlespeed wheels featured on the BLT and PBJ - is the freewheel a dedicated singlespeed setup and what can I fit there? I would like to run a 2 speed setup for street trials vs. dirt jumping ideally, failing that I'd like to be able to fit a bigger driver (15-16t) in place of the 12t.

    Thanks!

    We are not launching the "not bikes" section at all... that stuff is all going to live in the "store" section now.

    So... Rev 32 SS... they are a "true" singlespeed hub with a one piece cassette body and driver (12t). We are not supporting other driver sizes, but it is a Joytech made hub, so compatible drivers or cassette bodies should be out and available in the marketplace.

    Thanks, ever-helpful TBC guys!

    By the way, I have high hopes the BLT will make a killer street trials bike with the super short stays and high BB!

    Definititely... the spec fork length is an RS Argyle 80mm or Fox 831 100mm, so 472mm including the tiny bit of headset stack. So you should be able to find a similar rigid fork...

    The geo is definitely SUPER agile.

    I have the same question as the first guy, about changing the driver to a single speed cassette freehub. I recently acquired a used pair of the 32's with a SS rear hub and it has an 11t driver. I tried looking up this hub on the Joy-Tech website and the hub they show, that matches the "Revolution", calls for bell bearings (???). The hub I have has sealed bearings. And I tried to find either a bigger driver or the cassette freehub on the world wide web to replace mine ... and no such luck. I tried contacting Joytech, but no response yet. Here's the Joytech website I found ... joy-tech.com.tw, and click on the "mtb single speed disc" link.

    Also after looking at the PBJ pics on your site, I can see that the rear hub appears to have a cassette freehub and not a driver. What gives? I was totally stoked about getting these wheels, and now I can't ride 'em ...


    any advice would be hugely appreciated
    thanks
