Freewheel thread spec

Hello,
I'm really interested in the Chub Single Speed Read Disc Hub from the Hive but the spec for the freewheel compatibility reads 1.375 x 24tpi.

the freewheel I am planning on using has a spec of 1.37 x 24 tpi.
is this compatible?
its a White Industries DOS Eno, any experience with this freewheel or advice is appreciated.
links for these products are below:
thanks

Chub Hub


DOS ENO

The answer is 1.375x24tpi is identical to 1.37x24tpi, it's just a round off difference in nomenclature.

Sorry to disappoint you but possibly the 23 people who read the OP didn't know the correct answer and didn't want to guess. Freewheels aren't that common anymore so their threading isn't nearly as well known as it used to be.

Obviously, you're not paying us enough.

Good on you for finding the answer yourself! The skills you have just learned will surely serve you well over the years, and not just when you need to fix you bicycle.
