im new to the fixie scene well im not quite there yet as i need a little help on choosing which hub i should buy for the rear i have under $80 to spend and im not too worried if its not the best hub out there i just want a fixed gear.
i am currently converting an old repco traveller so also if anyone knows any good conversion webpages a link would be great.
search for sheldon brown website, best conversion guide out there.
also i read this on another forum today,
the first “fixed” bike i rode was on a suicide hub. I lock-tighted the lockring onto it (against everyone on this forum’s advice) and that is why i have a huge scar on my hand and i have a 6 inch strip on the back of my head that wont grow hair anymore.
spend the money to be safe dude. im lucky im not fucking dead.
