Can I use my dt swiss 240s hub as a single speed setup? Is it just a matter of buying a fixed gear for the rear hub?
same thing can be said about cassettes w/ out carriers (most common)somemechanic said:I dislike aluminum freehub bodies in single speed applications. Concentrating all of your drivetrain torque on one area of an aluminum body causes lots of wear. I've seen a DT freehub body that was carved completely around by a single speed cog. Aluminum is toooooo soft!
Better off using a different hub that is:
A) meant for single speed use
B) has a steel or titanium body
