flip flop hubs- differend sized threads why?

on my hub it has freewheel threads on each side. im sure they run the same way but one is smaller than the other. why is this? does it mean can u get a smaller freewheel that has a smaller gearing and put it on?

the smallest freewheel available for the metric side of a flip flop is 13 tooth by Odyssey.

It's probably yet another company cloning parts made by other brands.

Thank you for mentioning Knight Bike Co. You just reminded me that I need to call George up about a TNT Revolver hub that he was supposed to give to me a while back.
