    disc on fixed side of hub?

    Is there some way of putting a disc (for brakes) on the fixed side of a flip flop hub?
    Some adaptor, or maybe just a disc that is threaded and use a lockring? Will it line up? I ask because I have seen people do the other way: a fixed cog on the 6 disc mount bolt holes.

    It is for an ENO eccentric, if it matters. and yes, I will have to get the eccentric disc mount thingy.

    And I know I can get a new hub, but I would prefer some little $10 adaptor. But maybe it doesnt exist or is impossible for some reason.

    Thanks!

    The AtomLab disc adapter is ment to go on a freewheel thread - the fixie side only has half as many threads. Although the adapter will go on correctly, you may run the risk of stripping the threads (aluminium on aluminium), I've stripped the fixie hub threads with a cog before - disc rotors are capable of more force.

    OK, thanks for the headsup. no big downhills here, i weigh 180 and it's for the rear.

    this is all hypothetical at this point, of course. feasability study, of sorts.

    Nice find, jh. Anyone have any idea on the feasibility of the disc brake adapter on a forward-facing dropouts like below (with or without those rack mounts)?
