We now carry Formula cartridge bearing hubs, under the Origin8 name, as our stock fixed-gear hubs.
These hubs are also featured on some of our stock wheels.
HU105 36 hole Front Silver
HU109 36 Hole Rear Silver
Double-sided fixed/fixed rear hub in 120 mm spacing, (adaptable up to 130 mm) with standard track 42 mm chainline to fit most track frames and many road bike conversions.
Designed with a look reminiscent of the classic Campagnolo Nuovo Record, with milled flanges with lightening holes.
These hubs have HOLLOW CORE lightweight heat-treated axles. Good quality track nuts, large serrated locknuts to keep them from slipping.
Sealed cartridge bearings. Does not include lock ring for fixed gear cogs (but if you leave the lockring off, you can install singlespeed freewheels on one or both sides.)
Axles are not readily changeable, so these really can't be converted to quick release.
Fixed gear sprockets are now listed on our Fixed-Gear Sprocket Page
Single-Speed Freewheels are now listed on our Singlespeed Page
Freewheel compatibility notes:
Freewheels can fit on fixed-gear hubs with no problem, just leave off the lockring.
It looks really goofy to ride a fixed gear with a useless extra chainwheel on your crank. These track-style stack bolts are the right length to hold a single chainwheel to your crank. They fit all modern cranks.
