I second the motion - I'd love to have a 2 or 3 speed fixed gear hub or two for my bikes. The only thing even close I've been able to find is the custom mod from the folks in the Seattle bike shop who are converting coasters to 2 speed fixed. The problem with that is that their ratio is too big for me with a 30% reduction on the lower gear.

Sheldon - Any way to contact the Sturmey/Sunrace exec you met at Interbike to pursue this one?
