    Freewheel side of hub

    Just curious........Why don't the free side of most fixed/free hubs provide 42mm chainlines with some freewheel cogs? For example, my ENO freewheel cog's shoulder is at least 2mm thicker than my EAI track cog. Thoughts?

    One would assume so but I think some fixed/free hubs compensate for this by cutting the threads further into the flange on the free side. I may be mistaken but I think Sheldon might have mentioned this at one time.

    Sheldon has lots of information about the difference between SS and fixed chainline. Indeed, it looks like most freewheels are designed to have a wider chainline than track cogs (by about 2 mm).
