    Fixed/Free Hubs

    I know Surly and Phill Wood make fixed/free hubs. Any others? Any thought's on these two choices?

    Disk hub

    If you have a disk brake rear hub, here's a fairly easy way to convert it to fixed gear.

    With a 6 pack of beer, I bribed the machinist at work to drill out a BMX cog for me. Bolts on easy, chainline for me was perfect with a Chris King SS hub.

    Van Dessel, Kogsworth & White Industries makes a 135 spaced hub (mtb frames).

    Suzue, Shimano, Suntour, Campagnolo, etc make 130mm spaced hubs, some can be converted.
