    You're probably going to need a new rear hub. This site has a lot of good information on conversions.

    if you have a freehub, you can't even make a suicide hub out of it, but Surly makes a thing that bolts on in place of the freehub body to give you a proper track threaded hub. It costs about as much as a new hub though.
    from Minneapolis, with bike love
