    1974 grand prix single speed free hub

    hey there im working on a 74 grand prix... i was going to go with a suicide hub to run it as a fixed gear but im not in love with the idea of dieing lol...so i figure ill just run a single speed free hub...ive found them down to 13t which is perfect for meas im only running a 40t chain ring...but the only issue is they all seem to be labeled for BMX bikes...im running the org wheel set which how a ATOMS freewheel on it now...what type of single speed free wheel should i be looking for?

    would this

    in 13 t (it notes in the add the 13 14 and 15 t sizes need a smaller thread pattern )

    If you are not doing fixed gear, what possible attraction is there to giving up the versatility of multiple gears?

    There's a little graph about freewheel threading here;

    Don't know if that helps or not. Is there a local shop that would let you try one on?
    I have spoken.
