    Fixing a King SS disc hub...

    Has anyone used a King rear disc hub as a fixed? I know that Boone makes a fixed cog that bolts on, but are there any others?
    Just for the record, I'm not a fan of the King "buzz," or the price, but I do like their commitment to environmentally responsible manufacturing techniques! I just thought it'd be cool to be able to run one fixed...
    On a similar vein, does anyone know how "clean" White Industries manufacturing is?

    There may be others, but DmofoT and I occasionally run the King-Boone fixed cog. I always have it strapped on (since I run Vs) and flip it for giggles, but DT runs disc on his IFab and swaps it out if he's feeling good.

    FYI, I think the smallest cog he can make (due to the limit of the bolt spacing diameter) is a 16T.

    Good job!

    No others that I know of that are manufacturing it. You can make one yourself if you have the power of boring holes into a solid cog...I went with the Boone solution, ha.

    Like Drevil said, I use it occaisionally instead of using my disc brake...or when I blow out my disc brake because of my great mechanical skills. It works great and I've never had a problem with the DAC. It's one of those things that is always in the camelbak now.
