    Suntour hub, SIS compatible?

    I have Suntour GPX hubs on my old Centurion. The old freewheel is making all kinds of noise and needs to be replaced. It takes a standard Suntour four prong tool to remove. I noticed Nashbar sells a 7spd freewheel for $20, and is SIS compatible. Anyone know if that 13-24 freewheel would work?

    I'm "guessing" it will, but wasn't sure if the threads are the same or not.

    Almost certainly it'll fit. According to Harris Cyclery, there are only a few old french hubs that don't use the standard freewheel threading -- Suntour GPX definitely doesn't qualify.

    The Nashbar freewheel will certainly fit the hub threads. However, you will need a different freewheel remover for it. These freewheels are made by Sunrace (not Sun Tour) and use a splined Shimano freewheel remover. In fact, I've read that they are a somewhat loose fit for the Shimano remover and should really be serviced with a similar but slightly larger Sunrace remover.
