If you read the post again, hairy, he says he's not going for a ss specific wheel for futureproofing. So I would expect a normal hub with spacers...

retro rockets?

(once had to do ~300km of a loong adventure race with no rear brake, if i could only have 1 brake, i would pick the front)

I also though he was going off road fixed, but he says no front brake, tat would require no rear brake.......i'm more confused.

rumor has it my singlespeed build will have 2 brakes......
