  • getting a rear wheel fixed.

    I have slowly transformed my crappy old road bike into a commuter and to be honest I wanted to try going fixed for a while.

    How can I get the rear wheel fixed while keeping cost minimum?
    I know I can weld the free-wheel to the hub (they are probably both steel) but I’d like a less permanent solution.

    Cheers everyone

    surly fixxer for Shimano hubs
    £65

    By simply removing the cassette body and replacing it with our adapter, you can use a fixed track cog and lockring for safe coast-free riding.
    A popular conversion for track racers, spring time trainers, fixed-gear commuters and messengers, the Fixxer includes all parts necessary for installation, including axle, bearing, cones, spacers, and axle nuts. Most converted hubs can be spaced 120, 126, 130 or 135mm, and can even be used with a freewheel if a freewheeling single-speed conversion is desired.
