So by now, you probably have all heard that Specialized was behind the making of the Slumworm 26" fixed gear freestyle bikes.  And you probably all know about the 9T fixed 14mm hubs as well.  But I just wanted to post it for good measure, I think these look VERY sexy, and pretty ingenious the way they designed it as well.

A 9T driver, which can be bolted on to run fixed as well.. Basically you have a bmx freewheel thing with capabilities of being bolted on to run fixed.  Very clever.  Now, I'm not sure how the whole 9T thing will work, due to all the extra force applied when riding/tricking fixed gear bikes (I mean, look at my hub for example..), but the Wheeltalk crew have been killing it for a while, so I guess all we can do is just wait and see!

Check out more photos of the hub over at Slumworm.
