fixed/fixed vs. fixed/free hub ?tamjam

Can a fixed/fixed hub, such as the new Surly hub, be run free on one side, just without a lockring? Any problems with this? I haven't heard back from Surly yet on the same question. I'm still trying to figure out which rear hub to build my wheel around. thanks.

yes you can do that.

you'll be more thankful too because sooner or later everybody ends up wanting fixed fixed.
