    not sure what you mean about splines to the inside

    and they arent making a comeback

    the only ones that are probably not sufficient
    are the ones with plastic bodies
    as the plastic will soon flex and break away form the axle
    leaving you riding on a jagged misshapen hunk of plastic...

    it does happen
    but seems very unlikely
    given the ops description of the freewheel

    those things are seldom disassembled for repair
    let alone
    to steal an individual cog under cover of darkness

    because you are the one doubting that they can be hooked up backwards

    i don't actually want or need one
    you just need to know
    as the op
    does
    that
    if there is a will
    there is a possibility

    not true

    the sram derailleurs that used their 1:1 actuation design
    required more cable pull than some shifters were able to provide

    all seems well until you get tot he last few cogs
    and the...

    sounds very much like a freewheel
    with the description of the lock ring given

    many freewheels have a large lockring holding everything together
    but these are seldom actually removed

    same same same
    hook the demultiplicator up backwards
    and it is a de-demultiplicator

    I have a pair of travel agent style cable pull multipliers
    designed for canti lever to v brake arm setups...

    how old and what brand

    by the warranty

    i see no reason not to do that
    i also see no reason not to not do that

    a caveat with
    newer bikes is the frames are
    measured differently

    a 50 cm
    or 20 inch
    road bike from 1982

    a 50 cm
    or 20 inch
