profile imperial sprocket

greetings,
i just bought a bike without a rear wheel on ebay thinking people might be put off therefore less interest. the bike has a profile imperial chainring which is 24tooth. i stupidly bought a rear wheel without the freewheel (but i am able to return the wheel). the hub on the wheel is eastern and i hear i need a 13tooth freewheel and i have also been told that it is hard to find 13tooth freewheels for this type of hub.
what do you think? what would be the best thing to do? is it only profile that do the appropriate freewheel or can i find a freewheel for this hub?

thanks

Only odyssey makes a 13 tooth freewheel and the hub needs to be a flip flop hub to run it. Also you need a smaller freewheel then 13 t for standart gearing but unfortunatly 13 t is as small as they come so you will need with buy a back wheel with a cassette hub so you can run the right size cog/driver.

Odyssey is not the only company that makes a 13-tooth freewheel; there are several other companies that produce knock-off ones now.

If you want to run the correct gearing for that freewheel you'll have to buy a wheel with a 9t driver. But IMO that's a ****ty set up and the chainwheel will wear out pretty quick, I would buy a new 36t sprocket and keep the wheel, which depending on the price difference on the wheel you bought and the wheel you need may turn out to be a cheaper option.
