****** Page 13 ****** FIXIE STEP BY STEP BUILD GUIDE OPTIONAL FIXED GEAR / FREEWHEEL INSTALLATION I WANT TO RIDE MY FIXIE OR URBAN TRACK MODEL AS A FIXED GEAR INSTEAD OF FREEWHEEL. HOW DO I DO THAT? Both our 6KU Fixie and Urban Track models can be ridden with your choice of freewheel or fixed gear (we ship them setup to freewheel) thanks to the flip-flop rear hub design. If you’d like to ride fixed instead of freewheel, here’s how to switch: 12
****** Page 14 ****** OPTIONAL FIXED GEAR/FREEWHEEL a. You’ll need two optional tools that aren’t pictured in this Build Guide: a chain whip and a lockring tool. b. Remove your rear wheel from the bike. c. The side of the rear hub with the fixed cog/lockring has two separate sets of threads on it – the first, closest to the middle of the hub, has right- hand (i.e. “normal”) thread and accepts the fixed cog. The second, closest to the outside of the hub, has left-hand (i.e. “reverse”) thread and accepts a lockring. The lockring stops the cog from threading off when you attempt to skid, pedal backwards, etc. d. Use your lockring tool and turn the lockring clockwise to remove it. Set aside. 13
****** Page 15 ****** e. Use your chain whip and turn the fixed cog counter-clockwise to remove it. Set aside. f. Apply bicycle grease to the threads on the hub, fixed cog, and lockring. 14
****** Page 16 ****** g. Install the cog by turning it clockwise. Tighten with your chain whip until you reach a hard stop. h. Install the lockring by turning it counter-clockwise and tighten until it stops against the fixed cog. i. Re-install the rear wheel and go ride. j. Fixed cogs can tighten even further through pedaling action the first time you ride the bike, so it’s a good idea to re-tighten the lockring after your first ride.
