Double Drivetrain Fixed Gear – 2x Freewheels
Double Drivetrain Fixed Gear – 2x Freewheels
So I had this random idea the other day, it was to fit two drivetrains on two freewheels to see if it turned fixed. I had no idea if it would work or not but was keen to try it out anyway. Turns out it works! It looks weird, weighs more and is noisier, so no real benefits but an interesting experiment for me nonetheless. Let me know if any of you have ever done this!

Много вложений , просто ставишь фикс передачу
but why? BECAUSE SCIENCE !
Okay but could it be possible to gear both of them with rear derailleur? Out of curiosity more than anything, but the ability to change your gear for both reversing and going forward.
Weird idea with really no benefit, but still cool looking. I could definitely see a passersby with no cycling knowledge, thinking you have two speeds or that you can go twice as fast lol.
Saw a Chinese video a few months ago of a guy doing this.
You could put a lot more torque through the cranks without the fear of a chain snapping.
I would have made it 38 to 16………. cool idea
Thought my bike was cursed for running 46/17 singlespeed
Make the pedals independent on each side so they’re not connected traditionally but on their own bearing. You could have both pedals at the top or bottom. That’d be cool. Pedal with one leg while the other doesn’t pedal or rotate, that’d be tits.
ok ok evey one understands why not to do this
BUT maybe a reason why to do it.
Try making your reverse gearing closer to 1-1
will this help with braking?
well what kind of effects can you create!!!
dude i had the same idea extacly 2 weeks ago and now it pops up randomly on my feed….. they are listening ^^
This video got me thinking and if you used a left LHD BMX crank and a right RHD BMX crank then you wouldn’t have the problem of the pedal backing off.
a merda do golpe misterioso
Wavy wheels, perhaps your efforts would be welcome in your country’s government…?
Darwin awards anyone?
Double rainbows and chains!
You have to make it so it has an easier gear ratio in reverse, it would mean easier braking!
Looks cool, at least.
The strange part to highlight on this would be the clicking when you have a fixed drivetrain imo
On the one pedal you could drill a hole where the pedal threads in, then tap the some threads and insert a bolt to lock the pedal i n place.
ATTENTION: right side pedal mounted on left side will not hold. It will destroy the thread on the long run very ugly. Can say from experience on a tandem.
Great experiment!! 🔥 May I know what size your bottom bracket my brother?
I wonder what a mixed ratio setup would do. Maybe let you have different ratios forward vs backwards?
Good Idea, good job,and good looking man. Nice to see,and thanks for sharing. it gives some good inspiration.
Just double lock ring xd I’ve done it with two lock rings 🙂
Great way to staim both my legs with chain grease when commuting 😊
Next time you have an idea leave it in your head.
Why not just get a hub with a proper fixed gear? The whole ethos of the fixie is simplicity.
Now do a double freecoaster. You could choose to pedal either direction, but could conceivably coast either direction as well.
Used to have something similar on my Old specialized brand bmx. both hub sides had threads on them, so i fitted an additional sprocket + left hand drive freewheel on.
fixed all my issues with chainstrech and "uneven" paddlepressure
I was gonna say "Why?" but I’ve done dumber things myself. 🙂
No se inglés
I want the songs used in this… Does anyone know the titles for them?
what would be cool if you could on a bmx have one chain and sprocket but be able to disengage the ratchet pawls by like a dropper post lever and maybe engage a second set of pawls to be able to pedal backwards

Nice Try! I hope this set up goes well with Mid Drive Motor without Peddles. Keep It Up Bro!
Very silly – if you want a fixed wheel just fit a fixed rear sprocket. Why have to carry an extra chainwheel and a second chain that only gets used in reverse or gets stressed if you try to stop peddling while on the move??
Hey dude have you ever fixied a healing 10 speed?
Did you try putting the freewheel on backwards on the left side. In theory it should let both sides drive so you have forward drive and backwards freewheel
the question is: is this, or is this not literally a TOTAL waste of time. get a job, genius
This idea is bonkers. Subbed.
Since your too dumb to understand gearing its probably best you remove them until you master single cog bicycling. Best not get confused before you start guys. Safety first
If you put a crank arm on the wrong side, be sure to threadlock or tack weld the pedal spindle, or it may unscrew while riding. You can weld a small nut to the crank if it’s steel, and install a grub screw to keep the pedal spindle.
Noe with dual transmission 1x 12 😜
The fixie wheelie on the warf…. not keen… thats loose id go in the water
