    Can I thread a freewheel onto a fixed hub?

    So that's basically my question. I am going to purchase some hubs soon, like tonight or tomorrow. And I am pretty sure I can do this but I just wanted to double check.

    Those who "don't recommend" this don't know what they're talking about, there's absolutely no problem with this.

    badass. that's what I was hoping for, because I figured I would get flip flop fixed-fixed, and the the ultimate hub in terms of one gear choices. Maybe throw two of those white inudustries double cogged freewheels, and I could almost call it a 4speed.

    My single speed has got a freewheel cog threaded on to a fixed hub. No problems yet.
    My bikes come fully equipped with Specialized brand bazookas
