Fixed free flip flop hub for mountain bike

Posted on
  • After searching the forum, ive foud it difficult to find a fixed/free mountain bike specific rear hub, i found this http://www.velosolo.co.uk/shoptrack.html­ but am struggling to find something a little more seductive..... Does anybody out there know any other hubs that are about?

  • what you need is a normal mountain bike rear hub, with a single speed cog+spacers on one side, and a velosolo bolt on fixed cog on the disk side. and then use a rim brake when your running it single speed... :)

  • I kind of knew that method but was wondering whether there was a specific hub where you didnt have to convert it with spacers and wotnot....

  • I've got a hope jump disc wheel, has a weird freewheel set up so getting new cogs might be a pain. Dont use that side though tbh, just a bolt on cog

    You can always build a wheel

  • Actually not sure if they chainline would be any good on both sides of that hub if converted.

    Maybe you could line it up fixed, and it may be a little off in SS, or dish the wheel? Never know, might work.

  • What you're looking for is a 135mm wide hub with freewheel thread on one side and disc brake on the other? It doesn't exist. The screw-on freewheel went redundant way before disc brakes became popular on bikes. You can either convert a standard 120mm fixed/free flipflop hub with a longer axle and space it out, or just take the easy route: a MTB hub with Velosolo cog bolted on instead of a brake disc and a sprocket and some spacers on the freehub body. Easy as pie, you just have to look at pictures to know how it's done.

  • surly do one i think. worth checking them out

  • Don't on one do one?

  • Surly's "new" hub...

    yo strings!

    let me know. it'll save you a tenner on the retail price.
    peace

  • Nice one, that's just what I'm looking for, was contemplating using a Paul component one with the disc brake side in conjunction with the bolt on cog, I wasn't really fancying the price lol now all I have to fork out got is the shiny black Paul full house cranks.... Bonus!!! Cheers Matt and thanks for the advice all!! I had a look at the dmr one and was unsure of the dual line up when swapped around too, though they are relatively priced on that website so may buy a couple of other things on there... Namely the nice green wide rims!!!

    They do have them, check out Paulson components, they do a 135 mm rear hub with disc break free wheel and they also do a fixed one as well with disc break but no flip flop 135 mm hub yet, you'd have to order straight from America which is the shitter!!!

    Quite nice!!!

  • fyi and record people
    the surly new hub works on a 52mm chainline.

  • Fixed or free, but not flip-flop**. **

    Hope Pro 2

    It sure does both on flipflop right? If so that's great value, I won't be doing extreme downhill riding fixed any way... I'll leave that to the sloshers!!!

    it def does both.
    one side is threaded forfree wheel, one side has fixed and lockring threads :-)

  • Good stuff, another peice of the jigsaw ;-)

    anyone tried these? i'm thinking of building a fixed mountain bike wheel with a bolt on cog, they seem like a good hub to build around

  • I saw these hubs as well, not sure whether they are very good or not though....
