    Different Sized Sprockets?

    Is there more than one size of threading for sprockets?

    I was looking at a single speed one tonight and the threading on it was rather small. I tried putting it on my freehub but it was too small. Was this just a weird sized sprocket? Or is the freehub on my wheel a weird size?

    Thanks!

    I am sure smarter people than me will chime in soon but I'm pretty sure most of them are the same size, I've heard of different sized hub threads (I think), so different sized cogs wouldn't be out of the question.

    There was a bmx threading that is smaller than the standard threading on freehubs and track hubs... it is for accommodating smaller tooth cogs but does not seem to be used much anymore.
