    Fixed rear hub that uses casette cogs?

    I want to try fixed for a while. I'd like to be able to use the singlespeed casette cogs I already have, so I can adjust. Does anybody make a hub that's fixed and uses casette cogs?

    Not that I know of

    Best/Easiest bet is to pick up a TomiCog take off your disk rotor and bolt it on (assuming you have a disk hub) flip your wheel around and ride. Other option is depending on what kind of cog you have you can drill your own.

    Whatever you end up with it's fun... hard but fun.

    What about just going for a Surly fixer and a cheap cog. That way you don't have to rethread the wheel.

    alot of ss/multispeed stock bikes use front freewheels and fixed rear hubs. this is not the only option:

    Nope, no one makes one. I think it'd be a good idea, but the body would have to be made out of some tough stuff. You can try fixing your own freehub body. I've seen one that has screws drilled and tapped to prevent it from turning for a cheap fixed gear conversion.

    A.M.Y. hinted about a splined fixie/free hub from White Industries in this thread. Show us the goods, A.M.Y.!

    The Echo fixed cog

    is still proprietary to the hubs isn't it? You couldn't take say a Surly cog and slap it onto the Echo hub correct?

    I wanted to try fixed gear, so I took the freehub body off my Shimano hub, then welded all around the back of it. If you've looked at the back of a freehub before, you know the gap where the inner part and outer part off the freehub meet and you can see all the tiny bearings inside it? Yeah, I was welded that solid. It worked very well, but I didn't have much fun so the modified freehub came back off and go thrown in the parts bin.

    Wrong

    Try-all and Viz have fixed 6 speed cassette hubs.

    They use a proprietary cog mounting system (not Shimano splined cogs) but they look really nice...Level Components.

    The wheel is no longer in my possession. I wasn't able to get the chainline close enough. Here's what the interface looks like:

    the viz looks like a pretty standard spline interface to me, but i've never used one:
