    I'm not too too familiar with bikes..I have a fixed gear setup right now and I am interested in putting a set of spinergy rev x wheels on it...but they're all designed for cassettes...how do I get around this? thanks :)

    the front wheel's easy (of course)...

    for the rear wheel, try Surly's hub converter: "This is a conversion kit to convert almost any recent Shimano cassette hub (except pre-1997 Dura Ace) to fixed gear...kit will also permit the conversion of Spinergy and other one-piece wheels that use Shimano cassettes." (see http://www.sheldonbrown.com/harris/fixed-hubs.html)

    ..thanks for the reply, I did actually buy that...but then got the wheels off of ebay and realized the rear wheel had an older threaded hub...sooooo... I went the more half ass route and used a couple spacers and loctite with a track cog...not ideal, but I ran that setup on my old wheels for a couple years without a problem....

    Fixed with Rev-Xs is terrifyingly dangerous. I'd never ride Rev-Xs in the first place, they're far too dangerous. Mike Burrows (Legenedary bike designer, designed Chris Boardman's Lotus Sport) watched them disintergrate in strandered testing, stay well away from these death traps.
