    Im not sure if any of you have encountered problems with sovos track hubs stripping out. Ive heard about adding spacers under the cog to make the cog/lockring fit tighter.
    Ive noticed some other inexpensive hubs dont seem to need spacers and from riding around with them on bikes without a front brake, they dont seem like they feel like they will strip. Some friends have used some cheap fixed gear hubs and striped them out in a ride or two.

    The only thing I have found to not strip out is the miche.

    So any tips on extending the life of the cheap fixed gear hubs?
