    Vintage Regina Freewheel Threading

    I've got an old 1977 Schwinn Paramount with full Campy Record. The rear hub is also Record and it has a badly worn Regina Freewheel. eBay has plenty of good 5 speed freewheels, but how do I know what kind of threading I need? They frequently specify "English" and "French" threading in the item descriptions (didn't see any "Italian").

    You probably have English threads (look for "BSC" on the freewheel or the hub). As you undoubtedly have guessed, you do not have French threads.

    If you have Italian threads, you can convert to an English freewheel, but because the groove profile differs, you cannot switch back and forth between English and Italian threading without risking stripping the threads on your rear hub.

    Thanks John. No such markings, but I think I'll take a gamble on the English threads.

    Again, Thanks.
