Well it is that time again and I have to start planning for my winter project (the Map bike should be done by them.
I have decided that I would like to build a 26″ single speed (fixed gear?)
so just wanted some advice from the tool junkies out there. – especially on the idea of fixed gear, I have never seen a 26″ fixed gear wheel and wasnt really sure if they even make them. (I will be doing some googling after I post this.) but I was hoping for any advice you all could give.
You may be able to find a stock wheel. Finding a freewheel-only hub will likely be easier (the number of production singlespeeds is on the rise, and folks need to replace wheels), but if you look around hard enough, you should be able to find a fixed/free hub.
Another option is to find a freewheel only hub that accepts disc rotors, and use a TomiCog (assuming those are still around) for fixed gear scorchin’. Of course, that would exclude running a rear disc brake in fixed mode…..
