    Voodoo Wazoo One Cross Frame Fixed?

    I just saw this frame

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/ah_blake/4790178810/

    The thing that really interests me is that it had sliding dropouts and it has clearance for 40cc tires and has disc mounts front and rear with fenders.

    I was wondering, it is safe to run this frame fixed gear? Or should I stick SS/Geared just for the hell of it?

    Why would it not be "safe"?

    I bought one last year and thought the dropouts were a neat idea. I am running it geared for the winter and have run it as a SS. I do not see any problem going fixed. If you are looking for a frame with the option to run either and are interested in a nice 'cross frame with both disc and cantilever option, this might be for you.
    However, if you just want a fixed frame, there are certainly simpler and more elegant options in the Wazoo's price range.

    Awesome! I just put my order for one in 53cm. The geometry is weird (I'm assuming that's a cross thing) but I got a good price at Universal Cycles with their coupon.

    The reason I wanted a frame like this is because my Schwinn right now, as much as I love it, does a very poor job in the snowy winters as I cannot fit any studded tire in that rear triangle. I did put a cross fork on it and run a front studded tire with a front disc but it leaves me wanting more.

    I essentially want to turn this Wazoo into my "snow" bike with the same wheelset I have on the Schwinn which is flip flop fixed/SS. I didn't know if it was okay to run fixed gears on sliding drops, as it was not specified on the Wazoo's uses.

    Knowing I can run fixed on the Wazoo almost makes me want to sell my Schwinn frame, but I can't do it. I'll just make it my dedicated spring/summer commuter and the Wazoo fall/winter.

    one more thing, is the rear set for 130mm hubs or 135mm? I see 130mm everywhere I look but there's no such thing as a 130mm disc hub right?
