The Excel Sports Mr T Fixed rear wheel is made for 130mm road spacing. It is built around the White Industries Eccentric Eno rear hub so chain tension can be perfectly adjusted even on bikes with vertical drop outs. As with all White Industry hubs, quality is top notch with elegant and precise machining. Other wheel details include black DT Competition spokes with DT Prolock black brass nipples laced to a DT Swiss RR465 rim.
The Eccentric ENO hub allows a standard BMX freewheel to be put on one side and a fixed White Industries fixed cog with a lockring be installed on the other side. White industries uses a very solid splined interface between the hub and the cog so you want to make sure you get a White Industries fixed cog and lockring (available separately).
We can envision a couple of different uses for this wheel. A fixed gear/single speed set up is great to put new life into an old road frame as an urban commuter/around town bike. Another use is for off-season training. Riding a fixed gear is a great way to develop a fluid pedal spin as well as overall leg strength and efficiency. We have seen more than a few pros riding fixies around Boulder in the off-season. The freewheel side offers a less demanding single speed option too. We pity da fool who rides something else!
White Industries fixed cog and lockring is required for the rear hub. They are sold separately.
