    I got a Fix.

    Got that 57cm red/white Centurian on ebay tonight. 102.50 bucks plus box/ship. SHEEUT, I paid nearly $200 for my last saddle!

    Yeah, it's a roadie but I'mina put the biggest tire on that'll fit and will ride it off pavement. Now to round up some cheap pedals. I might flip and chop the bars. I'll leave the rear brake on for now.

    Maybe some cool fenders for it. Oh, and I gotta learn to ride noacoasty style.

    That's a pretty nice "spare" my road bikes are almost older than I am.

    Fixed Ksyrium?

    Is it fixed or freewheeling? If fixed, what was your method? Welded freehub?

    That's a bit flashy, but I guess it'll do.

    I'm on a steel and leather kick right now.

    geez, there goes the cost of the bike $70 for a leather saddle, $120 for pedals, set of tires, bar tape, bell,...

    No, wait, this is supposed to be a beater. Pull the pedals off the #3 MTB and find a used Brooks.

    Not Yet

    I'm running a 42/16, still too easy to pedal but it worked without a tensioner.

    It's not fixed in that picture, got a ENO in the works.

    It would be cool to be able to fix those wheels but I think it would bad to permantly dissable the freehub on a set of Kssyrums SL's. It will be fixed in the next pix, that was the first time I've tried to post a pix so it was kind of a test run.

    I think you can take off the freehub body and replace it with a Surly Fixxer. Not sure if that'll work on a Ksyrium, but that's what the Fixxer is for.

    Fixxer won't work on a Mavic hub. Just Shim a no.

    Does anyone know if that fixxer will work on a set of Rolf Vectors? I have a cheapo commute bike that's set up as a freewheeling SS with a pair of vector comps on it that I'd love to fix

    That might be a loose ball set up. If it is, I think you might be able to do it with a Surly fixer.

    The following is from the Surly website...

    under the "Blog" link.

    "B) And finally today, since many of you keep asking: no, the Fixxer does not work on your Spinergy, Rolf, whathaveyou "wheel system." The Fixxer replaces the freehub body on most Shimano branded hubs (Silent Clutch and most Dura Ace excepted).
    This does NOT mean merely Shimano compatible; Shimano compatible and Shimano branded mean different things. Compatible means that the spline pattern on the FH body accepts Shimano-type cassettes, and there are lots and lots of Shimano compatible hubs out there. The way the FH body itself connects to the hub shell, however, is fairly unique to each brand, and herein is the issue. Shimano branded means that the hub is made by Shimano.
    AGAIN: The Fixxer works on most SHIMANO hubs, but that's it. If you got it to work on something else, good for you, but that's your own gig and voids the warranty of the Fixxer and probably also of the wheel (maybe not a big deal, but it's worth noting). Nonetheless, if you did get it to work on something other than a Shimano hub (I know some of you have made it work) and feel like sharing, write in and let us know how you did it. [email protected].
    P.S. It's not completely accurate that the Fixxer does not fit on some of these things...in fact, BQ reminds me that the Fixxer will fit on a Spinergy hub and tug down nicely. But you can't redish the wheel, so maybe if you're using it on a 120mm spaced frame it'll work, otherwise no. I admit to ignorance on this to some degree as I have never in my life owned a 'wheel system.' I've always counted on the practicality of regular old wheels."
