Anyone ever have problems using non track hubs for a single speed conversion? I have a really nice set of Campy NR wheels laying around just waiting for a single speed freewheel. Never having done a conversion, I have no idea if it will work. Thanks

It should work. Check to see how easily the freewheel threads on before you go whole-hog. You may need to respace the axle in order to get the chainline right, and if you do that, you may need to redish the wheel. Other than that, it should be easy and work pretty well.
