      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      I've been watching this post for a while now...been meaning to post my beater, finally got around to uploading some photos.
      Nishiki Olympic 12 road frame, powdercoated and all stickered up to look ratty. Mavic rims, Shimano front hub, Old Campagnola non flip flop rear, 52T front, 18T rear, Speedplay X2 pedals, hacked/flipped drop bars, Shimano 105 BB, Sugino cranks.
      I've got so many miles on it, it's not even funny. Eventually I'll build up something nicer, but till then I'll just RIDE IT LIKE I STOLE IT!

      looks like a disc mtb wheel to me.
      alot of guys also put wider axles on front disc hubs and use them in the rear as fixed hubs with this type of cog.

      i'm considering doing a fixed gear bike with my redline monocog. i think it'd look sick with no break mounts. somehow i know i'd end up doing a rear disk just to be safe

      if anything, you would want only a front brake.

      yea rear brake dosent do all to much on a fixed set up. do a front brake, but i wouldnt do a disk if you were gunna do a brake, i see those as to grabby, you want something that more or less just slows you down when you grab it. not something that will completely lock.

      nothin wrong with a disc. modulation is key with any brake.
      a disc up front would look pretty cool. just gonna be hard to find a rigid fork with disc tabs.

      Where can I buy one of these disc mounted fixed gears?

      It looks like a really easy way to convert a bike to fixed gear, especially since a rear brake is not recommended.
