    Can I use a 7 speed Uniglide cassette?

    Can I use a 7 speed threaded Uniglide cassette on my existing hub, which has a 6 speed threaded uniglide cassette? It looks like there's room. The 7 speed takes a UG or thin chain.

    I believe there were a couple different models of freehubs, one that would take a 6/7 speed without trouble (FH1051, I think is the part number), and one that would only do 6 speed (FH1050, maybe?). At worst, (I think) it'd only require swapping out the freehub body. (Harris Cyclery has some available for $20, pn. FW8946.)

    I don't think those are uniglide compatable. It say's it's STX-RC which means no threads and it says it's 11 tooth compatible.

    Solveg,

    You're going to have to make sure your's is 7 speed compatible or you will be looking for a used 7 speed uniglide freehub. I recommend updating to the hyperglide freehub (the one suggested above) and a new 7 speed HG cassette.

    You might want to post this in the Mechanic's forum.
    Sheldon hangs around there from time to time.

    From this link-
    http://sheldonbrown.com/k7.html#uniglide
    "Spacer washers would fit between each pair of sprockets. 5- and 6-speeds used 3.65 mm spacers, 7-speed generally 3.1 mm...."
    So a 6 speed would use 5? spacers @ 3.65 or 18.25MM worth?
    A 7 speed would use 6? spacers @ 3.1 or 18.6MM worth?
    I guess it depends if you have enough room for the thickness of 1 more cog? (2.35mm?)
    Sorry I can't give you a firm answer.
    This is friction shifting?

    Yes, It's friction shifting. Thanks for the effort, guys. I'll see what the mechanics say... I'm pretty confused now.
