Paul kept getting requests, so they brought back the fixed-gear version of their Disk WORD hub.
This unicorn enables the fixed-gear conversion of bikes with 135mm or 142mm rear spacing. It's machined with care by Paul in Chico, California. It's absolutely bomb-proof, light, adjustable, serviceable, and comes with their own thick stainless steel lockring.
Paul machines these hubs from 2-5/8_ round bars of aircraft grade 6061 aluminum. The hub shells are put through four different machining processes before they go to finishing, and the end result is something to behold. The flanges are canted towards the rim, and the spoke holes are chamfered to reduce stress on the head and elbow of the spoke.
The hub shell is available with dedicated fixed gear and lockring threading on one side, with a 6 bolt disc rotor mount on the other side. Proper left-handed lockring threading keeps fixed gear cogs secure, and a heavy-duty stainless steel lockring is included.
The axle is precision turned in-house from 7075 aluminum, which has a great strength to weight ratio.
Paul uses high-fill sealed bearings, and they can be easily adjusted with the simple adjuster ring.
