I moved my only lockring to another bike, but I have an extra freewheel.
I'm going to put the freewheel on the fixed hub until the bike shop gets more lockrings.
Half of the freewheel threads aren't engaged this way.
Good idea/Bad idea?

the track cog works with that many threads so the freewheel will too.
The concern people have is that there's more threads on a freewheel than a cog, so not all threads will be engaged. But, there's not enough serious abuse to strip it because it's threaded on with enough contact.

Yeah, I was imagining the hub side nearest the crank becoming a fulcrum. Thanks.
