    freewheel on a track hub???

    Can one put a 5,6,or7 speed freewheel onto a modern 2007 Campagnolo track hub? The 2007 Campy track hubs are beautiful! So, is this possible?



    (Why you ask? The 07 Campy road hubs, including Record, are ALL UGLY!! If I wanted a hub that looked like Deore LX I'd buy one!!)

    I think at least you'll be able to mount it but I doubt it'll work as the track hub body would be too wide to make any lateral adjustments. Even if you were able to mount it, the chainline will be way off and there won't be much room to dish the wheel as you will be limited by the width of the hub.

    Just curious, on what frame were you thinking about mounting this on?

    Just dreaming about beautiful hubs. But I was wondering if it was possible perhaps with a 126mm OLD frame. I guess single speed or fixed would be about the extent of using them on a road frame?
