Hey,
I'm building up a SS for the first time, and I want some opinions on wether I should leave the freebody on a pair of Mavic crossmax, and just run a ring, or swap everything out and throw in a surly "fixxer". thanks guys -Ryan

It depends, I am not sure of the free hub interface on the mavics. The fixxer was designed to work with shimano hubs. I would just use spacers and a cog, myself. You have more chainline adjustment that way. Just make sure that if it is an alum. or ti freehub, you use a wide base cog so it does not eat through the splines.

Surly Fixxer

makes a shimano freehub into a fixed gear hub, no coasting; not what you want, I think.

You want a wide cog and spacers for your crossrides.

Ohhhhh..I didn't realize it turned it into a fixed hub, does anyone have any confirmation on that???????
Where can you get the wide rings, anywhere reasonably cheap, I'm from Canada so we mainly use Cycles Lambert, and Norco for distributing companies, anyone know if they have any? thanks again -Ryan
