jan said:There are different ways to do it, I posted a movie of how to do it without having any special tools, and one where you use some tools for that specific purpuse. hope this help. I tried to do it the way with the pipewrench, but it was stuck, so I just wented to my local track-bike shop and had them removing the cassette for me. It took them no time and they did it for free. But I used the method to tighten my singlespeed cog.
I've got one of those, it's tricky...Multipass said:

think an oldish 15 speed mtn bike with horizontal dropouts, unscrew the 5 spd on the back, and follow the conversion
it would look a bit odd granted but its still a fixie
