metric vs english freewheel
My Van Dessel came stock with a flip-flop hub with a metric sized freewheel. I am going to take the bike on some trails, and I was hoping to set it up with the stock 38T chainring and a 22T freewheel in the back. The problem is metric freewheels seem to be limited to 15T max. The english freewheel will thread on to the fixed side, but it sticks out slightly beyond the hub.
It appears my only option is to buy or build a rear wheel with an english threaded hub. I would still like to commute fixed, so I'd like to keep a flip-flop setup. The Surly 130mm road hub has 1.37" x 24tpi and 1.29" x 24tpi for fee and fixed, respectively. That is the standard fixed size, correct?
Any way out of this besides a new wheel? My crank is 5 bolt, 110mm, and I didn't see any chainrings below 32T.
